Startling Stories was a pulp-era science fiction magazine known for its lurid covers by Earle K. Bergey and its eye-catching title designs. It was a companion to Thrilling Wonder Stories and Fantastic Stories. The magazine was very successful in the immediate post-war period, but as the golden age of pulp magazines faded in the 1950s it became less competitive. In 1955 the publishers attempted to reach a more serious audience by changing to a less garish title style and making the cover art less lurid, and once they gave up the stylistic markers which set it aside from competing magazines sales slumped further and it was dead within the year. Our new Startling Stories font celebrates the salacious covers and truly startling look of the magazine in its glory years and is based on the striking lettering of the main title. It includes both a bold and a regular version. the regular font comes in outline form like the original cover lettering and the bold version is a solid variant of the style. Both are kerned so that the characters overlap slightly creating the dramatic look of the magazine title. The demo version of the font can be downloaded for free. If you like it, you can download the full version with both character sets from our ONLINE STORE for just $24.
