Planetary Previews was a pulp science fiction magazine produced in Atlanta, Georgia, U.S.A. from 1981 to 1993 by Julian T Reid III, Cynthia Middleton and Sara Amis. It included science fiction, art, articles and political commentary, the latter mostly of a green-Jeffersonian Antifederalist bent.
It published short stories by Gregory Nicoll, Brad Strickland, and Brad Linaweaver, as well as by less-well-known science fiction writers. Planetary Previews also featured original art by Sara Amis, Jon Skoglund, Jennifer Lucas, Phil Bolton and others.
The readership numbered in the hundreds and were spread across six countries: the U.S., Canada, England, the U.S.S.R., Australia and Japan. The magazine was also enshrined in the personal Science Fiction museum of "the world's most famous Fan" Forrest J. Ackerman.
