Different readers look for different things in Science Fiction. Some want escapist adventure, others want social comment or satire - and there are plenty of excellent outlets for these forms of the genre. Campbell took over the editorship of Astounding in October , but it's generally acknowledged that his definitive style only became fully established with the July issue containing the first stories to appear in the magazine by both Van Vogt and Asimov. Astounding continued at full pace until , when Campbell changed the magazine's name to Analog. There was a handover period during which both logos appeared - the final issue to bear the name Astounding very faintly behind the Analog logo was dated September
And even if you have heard it, you might not know it mainly refers to one magazine and editor, Astounding Science-Fiction and John W. Astounding still exists as the magazine Analog Science Fiction and Fact. Campbell changed its name in to make it more modern, and he had already changed its content significantly in the s, which is why most people consider the Golden Age of Science Fiction to be Astounding in the s.
It struggled to find stories, and few were science fiction. Its goal was to present adventure stories that the emerging science fiction fandom would download.
Just looking at the first cover at the top of this essay tells so much about science fiction. Tremaine built up the magazine, bought better science fiction, and gathered a devoted audience.
One of his big successes was getting E. John W. Campbell was hired in to work under Tremaine. By Tremaine was let go.
