Grab It Right
Star Log Magazine was one of the 1980's power houses of science fiction back in the 80's and to many science fiction fans it was the only source of the back scenes of the workings of everything from conventions to fantasy & science fiction films.
The back story of Star Log according to Wiki :
The magazine was created by publishers Kerry O'Quinn and Norman Jacobs. O'Quinn was the magazine's editor while Jacobs ran the business side of things, dealing with typesetters, engravers and printers. They got their start in publishing creating a soap operamagazine. In the mid-1970s, O'Quinn and high school friend David Houston talked about creating a magazine that would cover science fiction films and television programs.
