Startling Stories eBook
September 1939
 
Total Pulp Experience. These exciting pulp adventures have been beautifully reformatted for easy reading as an eBook and features every story, every editorial, and every column of the original pulp magazine.
 
Startling Stories was the younger sibling of Thrilling Wonder Stories. It began in 1939 at the urging of science fiction fans who clamored for a full-length novel in each issue. At this point, Thrilling Wonder Stories contained a variety of novelets and short stories, but fans wanted something longer that allowed for more character development. And thus, Startling Stories was born. Each issue started off with a book-length novel, and was filled out with a variety of short stories, science columns, special features and, of course, letters to the editor. Some of science-fiction's best authors appeared in Startling Stories, including luminaries such as Stanley G. Weinbaum, Eando Binder, Edmond Hamilton, Alfred Bester and Robert Campbell, Jr. The magazine thrived through the 1940s and early 1950s, but fading revenues forced it to close with the Fall 1955 issue, after a 99-issue run. Startling Stories now returns with these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.

Typical of the time January 15, 2019
Reviewer: Mark Charles from Rockville, MD United States  
Plenty of action, not much character development, but you don't need much when the characters are sterotypes.  The science is often wacky.  The stories far-fetched.  All-in-all, fast and fun reading. One possible drawback with magazine is the amount of ink devoted to columns on science, reviews of fanzines, letters to the editor etc.  Some, such as I, find this interesting; others might prefer more fiction.
