OMNI Mag complete for free at the Internet-Archive

Das Internet-Archive hat (fast) alle Ausgaben des OMNI SciFi-Mags als Download in allen gängigen Reader-Formaten. Die PDFs sind stellenweise ziemlich miserabel gescannt, zu den eBooks kann ich noch nix sagen. Aber bei Essays und Shortstorys von u.a. Isaac Asimov, Stanislaw Lem, Arthur C. Clarke, William Gibson, Ray Bradbury und Philip K. Dick bin ich natürlich sofort dabei und ich zieh’ mir das jetzt alles auf meinen Kindle. So.

In its early run, OMNI published a number of stories that have become genre classics, such as Orson Scott Card’s “Unaccompanied Sonata”, William Gibson’s “Burning Chrome” and “Johnny Mnemonic”, Harlan Ellison’s novella “Mefisto in Onyx”, and George R. R. Martin’s “Sandkings”. The magazine also published original sf/f by William S. Burroughs, Joyce Carol Oates, Jonathan Carroll, T. Coraghessan Boyle, and other mainstream writers. The magazine excerpted Stephen King’s novel Firestarter, and featured a short story, “The End of the Whole Mess”. OMNI also brought the works of numerous painters to the attention of a large audience, such as H. R. Giger, De Es Schwertberger and Rallé. In the early 1980s, popular fiction stories from OMNI were reprinted in “The Best of OMNI Science Fiction” series and featured art by space artists like Robert McCall.
