The Internet Archive has each of the Galaxy Magazine 1950 to 1980.


I assume they have some form of permission.

You woild be assuming wrong. All their magazine scans have been floating around the Internet as illegal scans for years. Berkley gets away with it because no one seems to care anymore about protecting those copyrights.

Doubt if I'd ever get around to reading any of them, but the cover art is fabulous & worth a look…

Good find. Looks like a lot of good reads there.

Never realised Dying Inside first appeared in Galaxy. Will have to have a look and see if it differs much from the book version.

I'm so torn… I'd love to read the older pulps, but the reprinters are trying to make a mint off a relatively small pool of would-be readers, while the sharers aren't compensating the authors for their works, so somebody's getting screwed either way you go.

I eventually decided I'd read what I can afford and let the reprinters and scanners duke it out amongst themselves.

I still have some of the 50's and 60's copies. First read Harry Harrison's The Starsloggers" (later expanded into the original "Bill,the Galactic Hero") there. Helped me survive high school.

Also first read "Soldier,Ask Not" in Galaxy:


There was a "Mercenary's Hymn" printed in the magazine story,that I used to play on the piano (and sing; I was a weird kid),with a score by(IIRC) Dickson. When the story was expanded and published in paperback, the music wasn't included.

I tried to write a new one in a music theory class, based on the paperback! It was pretty dreary, which ISTR matched Dicksons neo-puritan troops in the book…
