  Amazing Stories - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Amazing Stories magazine, sometimes retitled Amazing Science Fiction, began in April 1926, becoming the first science fiction magazine and one of the pioneers of science fiction in the United States.
Amazing was larger at 200 x 280 mm, the so-called bedsheet format, with neatly trimmed edges, and a slightly higher cover price.
For some years Amazing followed a less serious bent under editor Raymond A. Palmer, achieving commercial success but critical derision for its "Shaver Mystery" stories of creatures allegedly inside the Earth which were presented not as sf but fact.

'Amazing Stories' is a foster home for ideas that will never grow into adulthood, that aren't strong enough to stretch beyond 23 minutes...[It's an] elephant burial ground for ideas that will never make it to the movie screen because they are just too short form.
Spielberg declined to do this for "Amazing Stories." Whether his presence would have connected with the public to make the series a success was probably a moot point however, as the key to what people really wanted, "amazing" stories, was just not something the show regularly offered.
"Amazing Stories" was made with high-hopes that it would be a success for Spielberg and NBC, the kind of show that could gather families around the TV on a Sunday night for good, imaginative programming much like Walt Disney's television shows once did.

 The SF Site Featured Review: More Amazing Stories
More Amazing Stories bills itself as "The very last issue of Amazing Stories!" For a magazine whose death knell has already rung several times, that may (we hope) be going out on a limb.
These stories, marked with an asterisk in the table of contents below, are good enough that the reader can't begrudge the fact that they are taking up space which otherwise might have gone to new fiction.
Reprinting older stories, particularly Philip K. Dick's "The Builder," which was published several years before Mohan had anything to do with the magazine, demonstrates one of the reasons Amazing Stories consistently lost market share until it was forced to cease production.

 The Amazing Stories of Condoleeza Rice - A BuzzFlash Reader Commentary
However, it now appears that at the same time she was saying this, she was telling senior State Department officials that the decision to go to war had already been made – well before diplomatic efforts to diffuse the situation even began.
Most recently, it appears that she has given three separate, incongruent stories about her role in the massive intelligence breakdown that led to the White House making false statements about Iraq’s nuclear capabilities.
Facing questions over Rice’s changing stories, the White House then attempted to deflect criticism by claiming that Rice and Bush both failed to even fully read the intelligence documents they were given - as if negligence obviates responsibility for misleading the nation.
