Starlog #1, August 1976

Soon to be added to The Thunder Child will be information on every SF magazine we possess in our library, to enable researchers to ask questions about an article, an interview, a quote, and so on. We'd also like to create a network of people who have magazines we don't have, so that their info can help others as well.

We begin with what's in Starlog 1, published in August 1976 by O'Quinn Studios. Kirk, Spock and the Enterprise are on the cover.
