      There was an Argosy Magazine in Britain throughout the late 19th Century and during the 20th Century until sometime in the 1970s. There is, or was, also an American version of the magazine, which tended to specialise in more masculine fiction such as cowboy stories, rather than the wide range of short stories, poetry and articles in the British Argosy. The British magazine was a jumping-off point for many successful authors; the vast majority of its material came from authors who are now well-known names in literature, both popular and otherwise. Pure quality.

    I hope that you will consider 2 publications… one for current authors and one exclusively for reprints. Once I discovered the wealth of great literature out there that has fallen by the wayside, all but forgotten, I quit reading current authors.

      Dave, I totally agree that good literature isn’t fad literature, therefore crosses the barrier of time without losing what makes it great.

      But not read contemporaries is a pity, like deciding one day you can get buy with only a right hand and so chop off the left. Why handicap yourself from contemporary future-thought? The fiction that is produced today contains echoes of the past, without a doubt, but also contains new innovative thought that never before existed. Take post Singularity fiction such as Charles Strosse (Accellerando), or fantastic monster mutant fantasy such as China Meiville’s The Scar, or mundane science fiction of William Gibson (Pattern Recognition), Neil Stephenson (Reamde), and Cory Doctorow (Little Brother, FTW).

      I agree the past contains a wealth of fiction and this is a good thing for without it we’ve no foundation for great contemporary fiction. But why should anyone “cut off” contemporary voices?

      Moderation sir! It’s good to have salad with your steak! Enjoy a bit of both I say! Let’s not forget our future or our past.

    Please contact me if you do not receive my email about still-living, still-writing vintage pulp author, Charles Boeckman. He wrote pulps starting 1945 and is still writing today. As far as we can determine, he is the only pulp author from that day still writing. He is my husband.
