OMNI magazine was produced from 1978 until 1995, when it went out of print after a short spell as an online magazine.

I could never wait for the latest issue. I just had to take a look before even leaving the shop with my copy, so I would stand in the newsagents and ponder over the cover art, before checking out the latest articles. Never failing to excite and amaze, it covered Science Fact and Science Fiction. Produced award winning, in-depth articles, about space exploration, computing, medical discoveries, parapsychology, and UFO'S. Had thought provoking interviews, with Nobel prize winners and inventors, which sat comfortably alongside Science Fiction short stories and artwork by some of the worlds best genre writers and artists.

Amongst the fiction exclusives were Johnny Mnemonic and Burning Chrome by William Gibson. Other contributing authors included Ursula K. LeGuin, William S. Burroughs, Ray Bradbury, George R.R. Martin, Arthur C. Clarke, Issac Asimov, Harlan Ellison and Roger Delany.

OMNI always had incredible artwork and photography. Some of the pages were printed on gold or silver paper. The stories were accompanied by illustrations and cover artwork by talent such as H.R. Giger, Robert Venosa, Jim Burns, Harry Harrison, Chris Moore, Chris Foss, Tim Whyte, Dean Ellis, and Roger Dean. Heck, it even boasted artworks by Salvador Dali and Rene Magritte! It really was a feast for the eyes as well as the mind. That magazine, took me far away, expanded my mind and transported me from the confines of the small world I lived in.

THE MIND'S EYE: THE ART OF OMNI is due for release on March 20th. Buy it from Amazon

Now there is OMNI REBOOT with new articles, as well as an archive of OMNI articles, available for download, a gallery, library, videos and online shop.

Or over at archive.org you can find every issue of OMNI available to read online or download for free. Happy reading!

And so the horror begins - a horror which will end the lives of six crewmembers and alter the life of the seventh forever. Sigourney Weaver stars as Lieutenant Ellen Ripley in one of the most suspenseful and powerful science fiction films of all time.
