Considers the sf magazine position in the USA and UK in 1980 and the distinction of the major magazines, notably the role of F&SF, which encouraged less conventional writers such as Harvey Jacobs, Thomas M. Disch, Avram Davidson, R. A. Lafferty, Joanna Russ and Lucius Shepard. In so doing it set the scene to encourage a more radical change in sf.
