UNEARTH: The Magazine Of Science Fiction Discoveries. Number One/Winter, 1977

Publisher: Boston, Unearth Publications: 1977

Edition: First

Seller ID: 138


Harlan Ellison was listed on the masthead as "Contributing Editor," which is probably what helped launch the digest-sized magazine. UNEARTH was established to provide a market for "writers who had not het made a sale." They also published established authors "First sales" as examples of where these writers had started. A clever marketing niche, I thought. This #1 issue features Harlan Ellison's first published story—"GLOWWORM." The magazine was roughtly cut upon publication and there are a few pages with wrinkles as published. Ya' gotta remember, this publication began on a shoe-string. ... View more info
