Andromeda Spaceways’ latest issue celebrates the golden age of genre fiction in a themed issue of stories from seven genre stalwarts and newcomers including an exclusive non-fiction article from the late Eric Frank Russell. The decision to pay homage to the expanding bounds of science fiction in such a way with mostly new stories and two nonfiction articles is an interesting one, but one that pays handsomely for editor Jacob Edwards.
