US magazine in DIGEST format, 8 issues Winter 1977-Winter 1979, published from Boston by Unearth Publications, ed Jonathan Ostrowsky-Lantz and John M. Landsberg. Subtitled "The Magazine of Science Fiction Discoveries", U'savowed intention was that all fiction should be by previously unpublished authors or by authors previously published only in U, or be reprints of first-sf-story sales by well known authors; these constraints were slightly relaxed for the last 2 issues. The reprints featured early work by Algis BUDRYS, Philip K. DICK, Harlan ELLISON, Roger ZELAZNY and others, but U's main significance came from the new writers it discovered. These included, among many others, William GIBSON with "Fragments of a Hologram Rose" (1977), James P. BLAYLOCK with "Red Planet" (1977), Paul di Filippowith "Falling Expectations" (1977) and S.P. SOMTOW with "Sunsteps" (1977). The artist Barclay SHAW was another discovery. Alongside this innovativeapproach to fiction were the usual departments, plus the series Science for Fiction by Hal CLEMENT and articles under the heading Writing by Ellison.
