Amazing Stories was the first magazine devoted solely to science fiction. It was founded in 1926 by Hugo Gernsback (in whose honor the Hugo Awards are named) and published continuously until 1995. A revival attempt in 1998 was unsuccessful, as was a second in 2004, and the final issue was published in 2005.
Scans of the original magazine's run can be found in the the Internet Archive.
