Spaceship Urff #1



Greetings, Urfflings!

Welcome to the premiere issue of Spaceship Urff! We have a great Author Spotlight to kick things off: British science fiction writer Ian Hutson! His work is of a satanical satirical bent, and his humor (or humour) definitely comes through in the interview.

Next up is a review of Tangerine, a science fiction novel by Wodke Hawkinson. This one has a really interesting premise and is written in a highly accessible style with strong character development.

This issue's article is the first installment of Spaceship Urff Classics. This will be an ongoing series of articles covering classic works of speculative fiction, whether that be science fiction, fantasy, horror, etc. This article on Stanley G. Weinbaum's "A Martian Odyssey" was originally published on the old SpecFicPick site.

B-Smitten is a feature I'm particularly excited about. This is for my fellow lovers of B-movies. This month, we present Manos: The Hands of Fate, a truly awful film that nevertheless holds a very special place in my heart.

Finally, the Books section lists several speculative fiction books you can check out, along with links to their Amazon listings. Authors, you can submit your books for the next issue; check out the Submission Guidelines here.

Each section/article is self-contained in its own post for ease of linking/navigation. Just click on the ones you want to read up above. At the end of each, you'll be able to return to this page to see what else might interest you or click on through to the next article. If you have any questions/comments, feel free to post them below. Enjoy!
