Inevitably with so much change and radicalism in the field there were a few editors and magazines that strove to restore some normality and seek to present a more traditional and less angry form of sf. Although some of these had a small measure of success, like ABORIGINAL SF, they lacked funding and generally fell by the wayside. Also it was evident that those who wanted the basic form of SF as represented in many films and TV series had shifted towards the gaming market and so the traditional core of magazine readers were being syphoned away by new forms of entertainment. However, there was also a growth in sf magazine production in colleges and universities, plus the reemergence of magazines as paperback anthologies.
