Planetary Previews was a pulp science fiction magazine produced in Atlanta, Georgia, U.S.A. from 1981 to 1993 by Julian T Reid III with the help of Julie Huyser, Samantha Eden, Phil, Berl Boykin, Cynthia Middleton, Sara Amis and Michael Bentley. It included science fiction, art, articles and political commentary, the latter mostly of a green-Jeffersonian Antifederalist bent.

It published short stories by Gregory Nicoll, Brad Strickland and Brad Linaweaver, as well as many other science fiction writers. Planetary Previews also featured original art by Samantha Eden, Julian Reid, Jerry Collins, Sara Amis, Jon Skoglund, Jennifer Lucas, Phil Bolton and others.

The readership numbered in the hundreds and were spread across four continents: the U.S., Canada, the UK, the U.S.S.R., Australia and Japan. The magazine was also enshrined in the personal Science Fiction museum of "the world's most famous Fan" Forrest J. Ackerman.
