I spent many hours of my childhood combing through the articles and images in Starlog Magazine. It was the precursor for so much of what we experience today as geek culture. But Starlog even went in depth into the process of filmmaking and visual effects. It had a huge influence on my interest in cinema and my desire to work in the industry.
Thanks to the Internet Archive you can now get any and/or every issue of Starlog for free in almost any form. I picked out some of my favorites and sent them to my Kindle app on the iPad. Happy nostalgia. Click on the cover image below to go to the archive and have a look.
If you don't think this is a big deal then you're not getting it.
