the first Starlog

Don't recall where I learned about it but I procured the premiere issue of Starlog for $1.50.

cover of the first Starlog magazineThe focus of Volume 1, Number 1 was Star Trek but they also discussed the Bionic Woman, The Man Who Fell To Earth (with David Bowie), and Space: 1999. Included was a piece by Isaac Asimov.

I thought the cover artwork by Jack Thurston was rather good.

I was in heaven. My interest in science fiction was growing. But it was a quarterly, at launch, so I had to wait a while for the next issue.


Rediscovered this on unpacking a box in storage in December 2017.
