Free Old School Science Fiction Public Domain Download - The Analog Science Fiction Collections !

Ever since I've been on planet Earth Analog Science Fiction and Fact magazine has been a part of my household in some form. My dad was a huge science fiction hound and his tastes run in the family.
Here's the deal according to Wiki : 

Analog Science Fiction and Fact is an American science fiction magazine. As of 2013, it is the longest running continuously published magazine of that genre. Initially published in 1930 in the United States as Astounding Stories as a pulp magazine, it has undergone several name changes, primarily to Astounding Science-Fiction in 1938, and Analog Science Fact & Fiction in 1960. In November 1992, its logo changed to use the term "Fiction and Fact" rather than "Fact & Fiction". It is in the library of the International Space Station. Spanning three incarnations since 1930, this is perhaps the most influential magazine in the history of the genre. It remains a fixture of the genre today. As Astounding Science-Fiction, a new direction for both the magazine and the genre under editor John W. Campbell was established. His editorship influenced the careers of Isaac Asimov and Robert Heinlein, and also introduced theDianetics theories of L. Ron Hubbard in May 1950.[1]
Analog frequently publishes new authors, including then-newcomers such as Orson Scott Card and Joe Haldeman in the 1970s, Harry TurtledoveTimothy ZahnGreg Bear, and Joseph H. Delaney in the 1980s, and Paul LevinsonMichael A. Burstein, and Rajnar Vajra in the 1990s.
One of the major publications of what fans and historians call the Golden Age of Science Fiction and afterward, it has published much-reprinted work by such major SF authors as E.E. SmithTheodore SturgeonHarlan EllisonIsaac AsimovRobert A. HeinleinA. E. van VogtLester del ReyHP Lovecraft and many others.
