Hugo Gernsback
Hugo Gernsback
(1884 – 1967), was a Luxembourgish-American
inventor, writer, editor, and magazine publisher, best known for publications including the first science fiction magazine.
In April 1908 he founded Modern Electrics, the world's first magazine about both electronics and radio, In 1913, he founded a similar magazine, The Electrical Experimenter, which became Science and Invention in 1920. Later on, and more influentially, he published Radio News, which would have the largest readership among radio magazines in radio broadcasting’s formative years. He edited Radio News until 1929.

A Site Contributor's
book about Hugo Gernsback
The founder of science fiction and his other inventions
Grant Wythoff presents a wide array of texts by famed writer, publisher, and inventor Hugo Gernsback that were foundational both for science fiction and emerging media studies. Through painstaking research and extensive annotations and commentary, Wythoff aims to reverse the widespread misunderstanding of Gernsback within the history of science fiction criticism, reintroducing us to Gernsback and the origins of science fiction.
Grant Wythoff's splendid work of scholarship dispels the dank, historic mists of a literary subculture with starkly factual archival research. An amazing vista of electronic media struggle is revealed here, every bit as colorful and cranky as Hugo Gernsback's pulp magazines—even the illustrations and footnotes are fascinating. I'm truly grateful for this work and will never think of American science fiction in the same way
