The original publication of The Blue Tower story saw print in Galaxy magazine’s February, 1958 issue. The same issue that featured Bread Overhead by Fritz Leiber. The editor at this time in Galaxy’s run was Horace L. Gold who focused….
“…less on technology, hardware and pulp adventures. Instead, he introduced themes leaning toward sociology, psychology and satire. He paid more than was common at the time and had the advantage that several authors had become alienated from John W. Campbell due to his enthusiasm for Dianetics.”
