Date of origin?[edit]

How was it "coined" by Hugo Gernsback in 1926 if it was used in the paper cited in 1923? HAND —Phil | Talk 14:02, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

Removed references[edit]

I have removed the following as references:

* Child Study Association of America, ''Child Study'' (1923), p. 202, University of Michigan, OCLC: 1554222. Quote: "… combination of '''scientifiction''' and adventure. The series is characterized by a high note of excitement and the almost incessant noise of whirring motors."
* "A New Sort of Magazine", ''Amazing Stories: The Magazine of Scientifiction'', Gernsback, Hugo, and T. O'Conor Sloane, eds., issue 1, page 3, April 1926
* ''Forrest J Ackerman's World of Science Fiction'', Ackerman, Forest J., pages 27, 31, 130, RR Donnelley & Sons, 1997, ISBN 1-57544-069-5

This is as part of cleaning it up, especially as the request for cleanup said: "In particular, the 'references' don't really seem to be references, but I think some general cleanup is needed as well." - AdamBMorgan (talk) 01:44, 18 May 2014 (UTC)
