Science Fact and Fiction


Issue Seven: View contents pageLOG designer Warren Olds is in his element with this issue, which has a "space-age" feel.

Michael Morley looks at the hierarchy of CNN and science, Julainne Sumich examines Joyce Campbell's penchant for Petri dishes. Marcus Moore talks about Star Wars (somebody had to), while the enigmatic "Atomjack" discusses the scientific possibility of immortality. There is an excerpt from Chris Kraus's forthcoming novel Aliens and Anorexia, as well as short stories by Martin Henderson and Deran Ludd. Pageworks by LA artists and a centrefold by Mr. Sean Kerr cap off this issue.
