The great master of scientific fiction, Jules Verne.
Scientific Fiction Number [i.e. issue].
Anybody who has any imagination at all clamors for fiction of the Jules Verne and H. G. Wells type, made immortal by them: the story that has a scientific background, and is read by an ever growing multitude of intelligent people. Science Wonder Stories supplies this need for scientific fiction and supplies it better than any other magazine.
A proof of my friendship is whether I will lend a person my Amazing Stories, or the yellowed copies of Merritt’s tales—and other fantastic, and scientific fiction.
Scientific fiction, a form preferred by some to ‘science fiction’ in the mistaken belief that a modifier (‘scientific’) must be in adjectival form. Length of the expression is what has prevented its general adoption.
Want to join a live-wire organization for readers of fantastic and scientific fiction? A club whose members include some of the most popular professional writers and artists and most of the prominent eastern fantasy enthusiasts?… The nucleus of the organization is…the same society that sponsored the First Post-War Science-Fiction Convention.
If there is any one thing to which I do object…it is your covers…. I am not ashamed to read scientific fiction…but I am ashamed to be seen carrying a magazine with a cover that looks as if it were a sex magazine.
I was conversing one day…with an author I knew casually, named John Stith, who writes scientific fiction.
