I remember that even non-SF readers were familiar with Omni and often had subscriptions (one of my uncles). The UFO stuff got a bit weird and I would skip right over all that, but before that became too burdensome, it was quite a presence.
“Today, though, Omni is coming back — and with it, questions about how our vision of science and science fiction has changed since its launch. Omni’s resurrection comes courtesy of Jeremy Frommer, a collector and businessman who acquired Guccione’s archives earlier this year. Inside a warehouse full of production assets lie thousands of Omni photos, illustrations, and original editions, which Frommer plans to release as prints, books, or collector’s items. But he wasn’t content with mining the past. Instead, he hired longtime science writer Claire Evans as editor of a new online project, described as an ‘Omni reboot.’”
