Galaxy Science Fiction

Galaxy Science Fiction ran for 253 issues from 1950 to 1979, was revived for a single issue in 1980, and then for a further 8 issues in 1994-1995. For the first few years (between 1950 and 1961) there was a companion series of 46 Galaxy Science Fiction Novels published.

In 1973, the publishers were apparently trying to find a way to cut costs so they test-marketed a variant of the November 1973 issue with a montage of black and white drawings from that issue's interior illos in place of the color cover. There were rumors at the time that they may have done the same thing with another issue but no copy has yet been located.

A British Reprint Edition was published from 1953 to 1967 and was revived briefly from 1969 to 1975.
