No. There weren't any in town. I went to some in

I read Science XX where XX was the year in which it
was published, Discover, Omni, Popular Science,
Scientific American, and Popular Mechanics.

I liked Science XX the best because the articles were
about real science and technology and not pie in the
sky like Discover and Omni. Sadly, it stopped being
published in the mid-80s. I liked the fiction in Omni,
and I also liked the monthly roundup of
pseudo-science.

I remember the Isaac Asimov series of physics
articles. I use them in my physics class but with the
units updated.

Carl Sagan, yes. Isaac Asimov. Larry Niven

I didn't start reading Martin Gardner until I was an
adult.
