Galaxy Science Fiction

Total Issues: 253+1+8=262

The exact title became a bit vague after Universal bought it. The final issue had no newsstand distribution, nor was it sent to all subscribers.

All issues from Oct 1977 through May 1978 exist in two versions. Subscription copies have dates given on the covers and spines, newsstand copies have the volume and number. The last issues were revivals as semi-professional magazines.

Title sometimes changed to Galaxy Magazine or simply Galaxy but there was no consistency or pattern to this. Magazine continued for a while as an e-zine.

Gangland Detective Stories
