The latest issue of Dan Dare magazine Spaceship Away is now on sale from specialist shops and the official web site, but if you’re a subscriber and haven’t received your copy yet, read on…
As Richard Sheaf noted last month here, Issue 14 (cover seen left, artwork by Martin Baines) promises to be good as ever.
“Along with our regular stuff we have an article on how Dan Dare lives on after the original Eagle folded,” says editor Rod Barzilay, “plus a new Ian Kennedy centre-spread with New Eagle‘s Dan Dare, and a stunning cover by Martin Baines from the
final episode of Murder on Mars.
“All pre-paid issues and shop orders have now been dispatched,” he adds, “but my data base crashed in January and some information was lost.
“Some issues might have gone to old addresses, so if you have paid for one and it hasn’t turned up – let me know.”
