If you enjoy old magazine articles, interesting predictions for the future, and colorful, imaginative covers, this publication is a must. Gernsback published many magazines, including what is considered to be the very first electronics magazine, Modern Electronics, in 1908. Later he brought us The Electrical Experimenter, and eventually ShortWave-Craft/Radio-Craft. He was also well known for his early Sci-Fi writings.

Along with being a writer, he was also an amateur radio pioneer, founder of WRNY, and the list goes on.

Radio-Craft became Radio-Electronics in the late 40s (1948 I think), and was around into the 90s under other names, eventually merging with Popular Electronics in the early-mid 1990s. Many of us grew up with the later incarnations, but the earliest examples will always hold a special place of interest for the radioman at heart. There's just something about sitting down to a pile of these old pulp rags for a good night of reading.
