1966 – Space and Time Magazine begins when high school student Gordon Linzner pools resources with friends to purchase a mimeograph machine. The first readers were fellow students. Linzner had so much fun, he published another issue the same year. Space and Time Magazine was born.

1980 – By now Space and Time Magazine had evolved from some stapled pages distributed at school to a professional magazine. The publication had continued to improve through the years. By the fifth issue Linzner had moved to side staples and two color covers—black and white printed on colored paper. “Not full color, but like a yellow cover with black and white on it,” Linzner laughs. “I had no money. It was a small press.”

1990 – By the 90s Linzner was no longer a solo act. There was a point around issue 80 or so Linzner was approached by Samuel Post who offered to finance the magazine. While the partnership ended amicably after just a few years, by then Linzner had a staff of dedicated readers and editors.

2009 – Around the 100th issue Space and Time, Linzner passed the reins of the magazine to new publisher Hildy Silverman. Linzner has remained on staff as editor emeritus where he remains an active part of the magazine.

2016 – Space and Time Magazine celebrated its fiftieth anniversary of continuous publication at an event hosted by the New York Review of Science Fiction reading series at the Brooklyn Commons. Barbara Krasnoff interviewed founding editor/publisher Gordon Linzner and current editor/publisher Hildy Silverman. Readings were provided by S&T contributors Jack Ketchum, Daniel Braum, Katherine Hasell, and poetry editor Linda Addison, along with an art display by cover artist Alan Beck. The event was recorded live ― click here to watch in its entirety.

2018 – In late 2018, Silverman made the difficult decision to close Space and Time after 52 years of continuous publication. She made the announcement on the Space and Time website citing higher print and postage costs as part of the reason for closing. The notice was seen by Angela Yuriko Smith, author and former publisher of a monthly publication with a background in newspapers. After some debate, Smith agreed to take on the magazine and continue the legacy.

2019 – On January 1, 2019 Angela Yuriko Smith officially took ownership of the magazine with her husband and co-publisher Ryan Aussie Smith. Under their care, the website was rebuilt by Kyra Starr and the social media was updated and expanded. An audio edition of each magazine was produced and voiced by Ryan with issues #133 and #135 available during the year. The magazine reached out to the community it now called home to promote the speculative genre and local literacy. This included mentoring fresh, new writer voices and establishing an open mic event in conjunction with the Mid-Continent Public Library system. To celebrate the rich heritage, a display of letters, magazines and other items of interest was created as a traveling display to tour libraries.

2020 – Currently, Space and Time magazine publishes four issues per year with print dates coinciding with the dates of the solstice and equinox. Print issues and digital issues are available on this website as well as at Weightless.com and on Amazon. Audio issues release the month following print and are available on Audible, Google Play and iTunes. We are currently compiling a complete collection of the magazine back issues to be made available in PDF format. While we do have many vintage back issues available (query if interested) issues that are no longer available in original format will be available as digital or print on demand copies.
