 This ground-breaking monthly was edited by the pioneer of the science-fiction genre, Hugo Gernsback. While articles and stories of fiction based on science were previously published in a wide variety of periodicals, including this one, this particular scarce and highly sought-after “Science-fiction number” is considered to be the first science-fiction magazine and the issue which coined the term.
