'Starlog' magazine archives let you revisit the making of sci-fi classics


Movie news and rumors may spread in an instant on the internet today, but in the past, you might have headed to the magazine Starlog to learn about everything sci-fi and geeky. The publication may have ended its three-decade and well over 300-issue run back in 2009, but you can now relive or catch up on its classic science-fiction past over at Internet Archive, where the majority of Starlog's issues have been digitized and published for free. The magazine's archives — which have been online for about a year now but were recently spotted by io9 — allow individual issues to be downloaded and searched through, making it easier for one-time readers and nostalgics alike to rediscover coverage of their favorite series right as it was breaking. You can read the very first issue below:
