Happy Holidays from Galaxy Magazine, 1960

Happy Holidays from Galaxy Magazine, 1960


Golden Age Comic Book stories has a fun gallery of science fiction themed Christmas covers from Galaxy magazine. The December 1960 issue is very MAKE-y. (I’ll bet Phil & Limor‘s, and Windell & Lenore‘s trees look just like this!)

    The robot and Meccano Christas tree are cool but why does Santa have four arms in that picture?

      The other Galaxy covers in the gallery show the same four-armed Santa. I guess he was a recurring mutant mascot.

    I was about ten years old when I bought a copy with Ray Bradbury’s “The Fireman” in it.
    I do not have the copies anymore they left with the first wife….She claimed I was a hoarder.

      Gawd, I would die to have all of the SF magazines I had as a kid, and the MAD Magazines, the comic books… And then the hippie mags of my teens: The East Village Other, the Berkeley Barb, The Realist, The Modern Utopian, Whole Earth Review, Mother Earth News, etc. Some of that stuff is probably worth real money now.
