 S-A on Facebook   Dan Dare audio adventures

Hello everyone,

Welcome to the autumn issue of SPACESHIP AWAY. As the festive season approached, our cover features a Dan Dare Christmas scene by Don Harley.

Tim Booth gives us another exciting 8 pages of his Dan Dare story, Shakedown Cruise.

Andrew Darlington turns the clock back to the 1930s, with his article on Modern Wonder, a weekly magazine which had many of the characteristics of the later Eagle comic.

A new regular feature, Space News, by Ray Wright, will keep us up-to-date with the latest from the world of space. We conclude, The History of Early Rockets.

The Golden Amazon and Operation Pintos strip stories continue.

Ray Wright reviews Elite Dangerous, a popular video game that originated in the 1980s, and has now been transformed into a multi-player game of breathtaking complexity and visual impact.

Jeremy Briggs interviews Titan Books editor, David Leach, regarding his career, the new Dan Dare comic and the continuation of the original Dan Dare reprint books.

We have another Davy Rocket humour strip. Finally, on the back cover, we show a few samples of reader, Andy Price's Dan Dare related artwork.

It only remains for me to wish everyone, A Very Happy Christmas.

Des Shaw
