Alfred Bester's novel The Demolished Man was initially published (in Galaxy magazine) with such character names as “T8”, “$$son”, “@kins” and “¼maine” (a precursor to SMS-speak). The subsequent book publication greatly toned down the use of such abbreviations. Short of locating old issues of Galaxy, is the original version available somewhere?
The book "Galaxy, thirty years of innovative science fiction" states the story was published as "Demolished" in 1952, but I can't find any reprints in anthologies.
However, you can buy DVD collections of Galaxy stories on eBay.
My copy is packed away somewhere, but it has this cover:
... and it has the SMS-ish abbreviations. According to the web page where I found that picture, it's the 5th printing by Signet.
