Science Fiction Index
Home Introduction List of Magazines Missing Issues Indexes


The Science Fiction, Fantasy, & Weird Fiction Index (or SF Magazine Index in short) is based on the index of the same name compiled by Stephen T. Miller and William G. Contento, which was available both in CD-ROM format from Locus Press and as a series of luxury hardback volumes from the Battered Silicon Dispatch Box. Agreement has been reached to publish an updated version of this index as part of the Fictionmags Index Family. This differs from the published index in a number of ways, as follows:

A list of all the magazines that are included in the index can be found here while a detailed list of the magazines and issues for which contents information is still needed can be found here. In general the index focuses on the fiction published in the magazine, but recently attention has also been devoted to indexing the letters in the letter columns and we'd always be interested in hearing from anyone who can assist with further such listings – currently indexes are known for the following:

If you think you can help with any of the above, or would just like more detail on the project, then please – all contributions are welcome, no matter how small!


Thanks, in particular, must go to Bill Contento and Steve Miller who compiled the original volume on which the current index is based, and provided details of many more issues subsequently. However, the index would not have been possible without the many contributors mentioned above, and I would like to thank all of those who have already contributed (directly or indirectly) to the project:
