Psychic (subtitle: "Exploring the Extended Nature of Man and the Universe") is a 42-issue English-language periodical that was published from July 1969 through February 1977 at San Francisco, California by James Grayson Bolen with editor Alan Vaughan. The magazine covered parapsychology and "New Age" subject matter and was intended as a more serious alternative to the sensationalist tabloid style of other publications of the period, such as Ray Palmer's Search Magazine or FATE.


The magazine was succeeded by New Realities in 1977.
