Roger Ebert recently posted a gallery of vintage science fiction magazine covers to his blog. The man may not know a damn thing about computer games, but in other ways he’s a wonder.
I’d read any of these in a shot. The sad robots! The inexplicable miniature elephant and its suave ape owner! The charming alien tourist breaking the 4th wall! No wonder science fiction magazines used to cram superlatives into their titles – they earned ’em.
