Not that long ago, in a galaxy not that far away, Period Paper is proud to offer a collection of vintage covers from Analog Science Fiction & Science Fact magazine! Initially published in 1929, Astounding Science Fiction , (later changed to Analog Science Fiction & Science Fact in 1965), is the longest running, continuously published magazine of the sci-fi genre. And as if that factoid wasn't impressive enough, issues of the magazine can even be found today, (probably floating), inside the library of the International Space Station! The list of notable authors published in "Analog" includes the likes of Mark Phillips, Poul Anderson, Mack Reynolds, and James H. Schmitz! Begin by traveling back in time and joining Sir Roger and his army of medieval English knights on their conquest of the alien Wersgorix Empire! Then partner with the Paratime Police and travel to the Aryan-Transpacific sector! And enjoy swimming and surfing with "uplifted" dolphins in the seas of the planet Kithrup! To continue the your saga of galactic adventures, simply click on the link, (it's easier than blasting womprats in your T-16), provided below the condition paragraph! May the force be with you!
