Summary Transformations is the second volume in the three-volume History of the Science-Fiction Magazine . This volume covers the period from 1950 to 1970, which was both a turbulent time in magazine history and, at least in part, the true Golden Age of the science-fiction magazine. It was a period of boom and bust: for a moment the science-fiction magazine dominated the bookstalls and then, at the dawn of the Space Age, many foundered never to recover. It was the time when the pulp magazines folded, when the digest magazine appeared and when science fiction tried to reinvent itself not just once but.
