Established in 1950, Galaxy Science Fiction was a pioneer in Science Fiction magazine publishing. Original editor H. L. Gold was interested in sociology, psychology, and other "soft" sciences, and was also willing to publish humorous and satirical stories. Science Fiction historian David Kyle commented in his book A Pictorial History of Science Fiction, 1979, that "of all the editors in and out of the post-war scene, the most influential beyond any doubt was H. L. Gold". The editorship of Galaxy passed from H. L. Gold to Frederik Pohl and then to Ejler Jakobsson during the 1960s. Look for more editions of MDP's Galaxy's Science Fiction series, coming soon to e-retailers worldwide.
