"In recent years there has been a resurgence of interest in Hugo
Gernsback, and the start of a serious study of the contribution he
made to the development of science fiction. . . . It seemed to me
that the time was due to reinvestigate the Gernsback era and dig
into the facts surrounding the origins of Amazing Stories. I wanted
to find out exactly why Hugo Gernsback had launched the magazine,
what he was trying to achieve, and to consider what effects he
had-good and bad. . . . Too many writers and editors from the
Gernsback days have been unjustly neglected, or unfairly
criticized. Now, I hope, Robert A. W. Lowndes and I have provided
the grounds for a fair consideration of their efforts, and a true
reconstruction of the development of science fiction. It's the
closest to time travel you'll ever get. I hope you enjoy the
trip."-Mike Ashley, Preface
