Amazing Stories is an Americanscience fiction magazine launched in April 1926 by Hugo Gernsback's Experimenter Publishing. It was the first magazine devoted solely to science fiction. Amazing was published, with some interruptions, for almost eighty years, going through a half-dozen owners and many editors as it struggled to be profitable. Publication was suspended after the March 2005 issue. A new incarnation appeared in July 2012 as an online magazine.
