It is entirely new—entirely different—something that has never been done before in this country. Therefore, Amazing Stories deserves your attention and interest. There is the usual fiction magazine, the love story and the sex-appeal type of magazine, the adventure type, and so on, but a magazine of "Scientifiction" is a pioneer in its field in America.
By "scientifiction" I mean the Jules Verne , H. Wells , and Edgar Allan Poe type of story—a charming romance intermingled with scientific fact and prophetic vision. But with the ever increasing demands on us for this sort of story, and more of it, there was only one thing to do—publish a magazine in which the scientific fiction type of story will hold forth exclusively. Toward that end we have laid elaborate plans, sparing neither time nor money. Edgar Allan Poe may well be called the father of "scientifiction. Jules Verne, with his amazing romances, also cleverly interwoven with a scientific thread, came next.
A little later came H. Wells, whose scientifiction stories, like those of his forerunners, have become famous and immortal. It must be remembered that we live in an entirely new world. Two hundred years ago, stories of this kind were not possible. Science, through its various branches of mechanics, electricity, astronomy, etc. Our entire mode of living has changed with the present progress, and it is little wonder, therefore, that many fantastic situations—impossible years ago—are brought about today.
It is in these situations that the new romancers find their great inspiration. Not only do these amazing tales make tremendously interesting reading—they are also always instructive. They supply knowledge that we might not otherwise obtain—and they supply it in a very palatable form.

For the best of these modern writers of scientifiction have the knack of imparting knowledge, and even inspiration, without once making us aware that we are being taught. And not only that! Poe, Verne, Wells, Bellamy , and many others have proved themselves real prophets. Prophesies made in many of their most amazing stories are being realized—and have been realized. He predicted the present day submarine almost down to the last bolt! New inventions pictured for us in the scientifiction of today are not at all impossible of realization tomorrow.
