This is excellent.

Thank you, Jim, for putting this up. I would probably not have known this was available had you not. Tremendous!

WOW! Thanks so much.! btw off topic but the archives I found the 'source music' used in RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK Cairo market sequence. It seems there were two sources used. So this (latter) is the main full version the song.

What, Amer, no translation?!

Too bad there aren't any unedited Jurassic Park tracks to be found there.

Very interesting. I still have the first 50 or so issues stored away in a box.

Isn't this how FSM started -- Lukas' ad in one of these issues?

This was before my time (and on a different continent), but I wonder if it was a source for finding fellow film score fans before the advent of FSM and the internet and what-have-you?

(by the way, if anyone knows the issue the Kendall ad was in, I'd like to see it -- for curiousity's sake).

I also have many issues stored away in a box somewhere. But this is still awesome. I'm going to go back and read all of these from the beginning.

Thanks Jim.

Many years ago I was the cartoonist/illustrator for Cinefantastique magazine. I had done a cartoon based on War Of The Worlds for them, and at the last minute they realized they didn't have the space to use it. So, I sent it to Starlog, and they printed it in their Star Wars issue back in 1977.
I'll have to look into those archives to see if my cartoon is there...

Nevermind...I found out which issue it was. It's #153 (april-1990). Here it is:

And I gotta love Lukas quote at the time: "The thing that makes Jerry Goldsmith the best is how prolific he is". He, he...I think he meant versatile. Oh, the cuteness of youth.

Starlog's letter column could easily have been considered the template for the FSM board, certainly the opinionated, obsessive side of this place. I wasn't reading Starlog by the time Lukas had his ad in it but the magazine advertised film scores and had some really fine articles on every medium of science fiction. I always got a sense of the 1970s pre-Star Wars science fiction enthusiast. Usually a male, college-aged, computer-literate, comic book reading; essentially a bunch of guys who looked like Marvel writer-editor Roy Thomas! lol Of course the magazine became a lot more broad in what it covered (James Bond, Indiana Jones, etc.) but it really was like this board in terms of its interests.

I still have the few issues I bought decades ago--the ones which featured Star Wars on the covers--and they are a lot of fun to read. Star Wars has certainly changed since 1980, that's for sure.

My, my, what an interesting find. Thanks for telling us about this, JP.

Does this elevate Starlog to some kind of significant cultural artifact? smile

It's a "Rosetta Pebble" for those of us of a certain age, David. Yourself included, I reckon. wink

Here's the thread where we all cried like winos over Starlog's demise. maybe I'll bump that thread too. smile

I used to pound the newsstand daily waiting for the next month's issue of this magazine to come out. Another casualty of the internet I guess.

This will be a fun database to browse. smile

Oddly enough, I never discovered "Starlog" until I started high school in 1993. Our library had a small section featuring the current issues of various magazines, and among the likes of "Time," "Life" and "National Geographic," they had pop culture magazines like "Cinefantastique" and "Starlog." I was already familiar with CFQ, since my dad has a subscription in the '80s, but "Starlog" was new to me and I loved it. You couldn't check them out, but I'd go there on some of my lunch breaks to read them.

No fears, JP. Back in the day I imagine I divided my paper route money between purchases of soundtracks, Starlog,



and After Dark magazines.




Here's the thread where we all cried like winos over Starlog's demise.


Made me laugh!

Back in the 70's many were very creepy.

TO CHRISTOPHER KINSINGER- You worked for CINEFANTASTIQUE?, Good stuff you did, was my favorite genre mag back then, I still have many issues stack away. it was so sad that the guy running the magazine took his life at a young age[for the life of me can't think of his name now?] I remember talking to him for hours, he wanted to do a article on one of my films.There is a funny story that goes with this. I went out drinking with some of the film cast and crew early that night. as I entered my apartment the phone rang and it was him from CINEFANTISQUE,.On the phone he wanted to do sought of a interview for the article[information and all,] now I had a good amount of beer in me , so I told him please hang on for a minute, I stuck my head in the icebox and then tried to suck on icecubes[they say that helps to get you more sober.] well I didn't want to tell him to call another time, not always a wise thing to do to a magazine interviewer unless your BRAD PITT or something. I got my head together and it worked out ok, by the time we were finish I was very sober. Really sad what happened to him.WHAT'S HIS NAME?
