Astounding Stories

Astounding Stories (its title varies) was first published in 1930; what is located here are full text issues from the beginning until early in 1933. Featuring lurid covers (many of reproduced in this selection), this monthly brought Ray Cummings and Murray Leinster to the public’s eye. Over the years, Astounding published some of the best science fiction under the tutelage of legendary editor John W Campbell, an author in his own right.; its successor today is Analog. For additional information on magazines of this kind (called “pulps”), this is a most informative site.

A book has just been published devoted to this magazine; you can read parts of it online.
