AMAZING STORIES. 1939. . AMAZING STORIES. January, Bernard G. Davis, No. 1 Volume 13.


Chicago: Ziff-Davis Publishing Company, 1939. Octavo, single issue, cover by Robert Fuqua, pictorial wrappers. Pulp magazine. Features "I, Robot", the first Adam Link story by Eando Binder. "The most significant of Binder's work – the Adam Link series (his name being weightily symbolic) written by Otto alone – is a very early American genre attempt to come to imaginative terms with artificial beings. Adam Link, a sentient, highly anthropomorphic Robot, narrates his own experiences, quite feelingly, as in the first, most famous single tale, "'I, Robot'" (January 1939 Amazing), a title Isaac Asimov took, in acknowledgement of Binder's pioneering work, for his own first book." - SFE online. Dampstain to rear cover and last few pages, a very good copy. (17913). Item #17913
