Amazing Stories Suspends Publication
The latest incarnation of Amazing Stories has suspended publication, according to Wizards of the Coast Group publisher Johnny L. Wilson. The current issue, Summer 2000, issue will be its last.
Negotiations are currently underway to sell the magazine's assets, including material in inventory, to Galaxy Online, where it will become an online publication under editor-in-chief Ben Bova.
Amazing Stories was the first science fiction magazine, appearing in April 1926 from publisher Hugo Gernsback. It has undergone numerous changes, suspensions, and reincarnations over the decades; it would be remarkable if it did not arise again.
