  1. Analog was a major source for my SF habit as I grew up during the 80s. So hail and well met.

  2. I remember when Campbell changed the name – and I was in fifth grade at the time. So I was reading it really young. (Yes, I remember the change from digest to magazine-sized and back. And reading Dune as two serials.)
    I dropped the subscription I’d inherited in 2015, because I wasn’t getting the sensawunder I’d had under the previous three editors. (Inherited, yes – it had been my father’s for decades.)

  3. Several times I’ve contacted the people in charge of the City Tech collection—I live a 10-minute walk away—but have never had any response. Hope the conference isn’t organized as well.
