Old Dragon Magazine and More

Dragon MagazineIn case you haven't caught the buzz going around - you can now download and read most every issue of Dragon magazine, courtesy of the Internet Archive. Check the archive out for The Dragon yourself.

They have a lot of back issues, but it's especially timely now that Wizards of the Coast have started offering up older editions of D&D to download. There's so much inspiration between these pages that you could spend days just reading them.

[edit: as you may/or may not have noticed The Dragon and Polyhedron links no longer work]

And the good news continues because they also have available;
  • Ares Magazine
    Ares was a science fiction wargame magazine published by Simulations Publications, Inc. (SPI), and then TSR, Inc., between 1980 and 1984. 
  • Polyhedron Newszine
    Polyhedron was a magazine targeting consumers of role-playing games, and originally the official publication of the RPGA (Role Playing Gamers Association).
  • The General Magazine
    The General (1964–1998) was a bi-monthly periodical devoted to supporting Avalon Hill's line of wargames, with articles on game tactics, history, and industry news. 
  • The Space Gamer Magazine (Wargames)
    The Space Gamer (TSG) started out as a digest quarterly publication of the brand new Metagaming Concepts company in 1975.

And just for fun there's; 
  • OMNI Magazine Collection
    OMNI was a a science and science fiction magazine published in the US and the UK. It contained articles on science fact and short works of science fiction.
  • Starlog Magazine
    Starlog was a monthly science-fiction film magazine published by Starlog Group Inc. The magazine was created by publishers Kerry O'Quinn and Norman Jacobs.
  • Galaxy Magazine
    Galaxy Science Fiction was an American digest-size science fiction magazine, published from 1950 to 1980.
Now to be honest folks I'm not sure how they have some of the later issues of "Dragon" up legally because of copyright issues, but I'm just pointing you to them. I'd suggest you look at them while the looking is good.
