Forbidden Locus Vintage Issue from the Archives

Greetings from beyond the paywall! We have been posting new content monthly on our Patreon Archive Feed – scans of vintage Locus and audio clips from author interviews and more – and wanted to share a little of what that feed looks like by making some of our earlier posts public. Check out this post with the entire issue 75 of Locus.

In addition to all the benefits of lower tiers, including a digital subscription and other perks, patrons pledging $15+ monthly have access to the Archive content (AKA the Secret History Feed). This includes monthly back issue posts, author interview audio clips, and complete access to the archive of past posts full of unique SF artifacts and ephemera like this early Locus issue.

Please consider becoming a patron to see more great content like this, and to support the magazine as we continue our shift to the donor support model.
