Bradbury’s Galaxy magazine stories available on the Internet Archive

356 issues of Galaxy, one of the most prestigious science fiction magazines of the 1950s, can be found online in the Internet Archive. Ray Bradbury’s early version of Fahrenheit 451, “The Fireman,” published in the February 1951 issue, and his 1962 short story,  “Come to my Cellar” are just two of the gems to be discovered alongside the works of Robert A. Heinlein, Isaac Asimov, Frederik Pohl and many others. It’s not surprising  that Bradbury’s work ended up in Galaxy. Editor H.L. Gold  hoped to develop a new science fiction audience by publishing stories that focused on ideas and employed a humorous or satiric treatment of psychological and sociological themes.
