''US monthly large pulp-sized popular-science magazine, Slick paper; 220 issues from May 1913 to August 1931. It began as The Electrical Experimenter and changed title to Science and Invention in August 1920. Published 1913 - 1929 by Experimenter Publishing, under Hugo Gernsback until his bankruptcy in 1929, thereafter published by Radio-Science Publications. From March 1920 onwards there was not a single issue that did not contain either a speculative article or speculative fiction, often both, and often several. Science and Invention was a more commercially successful magazine than Amazing, with a formula not unlike that later adopted by Omni. But although it was from Science and Invention that Amazing Stories evolved and thereby the whole genre of magazine science fiction, there was not a single writer whom Gernsback published in the magazine who went on to establish themselves as a major force in the sf world, not even G Peyton Wertenbaker, who was Gernsback's most exciting pre-Amazing discovery'' (Mike Ashley & Peter Nicholls/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
