Galaxy Magazine, or The Galaxy, was an American monthly first published in 1869.[1]

It was founded by William Conant Church and his brother Francis P. Church. [1] Mark Twain wrote about 10 pages an issue, for all but one of twelve consecutive months in 1870 and 1871, and wrote stories for it on three occasions before and after.

It merged with the Atlantic Monthly after 10 years of publication.[1]
