SF Commentary 86 Online

Unlike Outer Limits, Bruce Gillespie allows you to control the vertical and horizontal when you choose which version of SF Commentary #86 to download from eFanzines.

One version is designed for ordinary printouts (76 pages) (the ‘portrait’ edition), the other is designed for computer and device screens (the ‘landscape’ edition) (120 pages). Both are PDF files and the text in each is the same.

SFC 86 includes eulogies to two well-known Australian fans who died in 2013, Peter Darling and Graham Stone; three sets of articles about “Science Fiction’s People” — Robert Bloch’s visit to Australia in 1981, an interview with John Cute, and memories of Jay Kay Klein — and nine articles about well-known SF writers, such as Joanna Russ, Arthur C. Clarke, C. M. Kornbluth, A. Belyanin, Phyllis Gotlieb, Audrey Niffeneger, Olaf Stapledon, Ray Bradbury, and J. G. Ballard.

Contributors include Daniel King, Peter Gerrand, Miranda Foyster, Elizabeth Darling, Chris Nelson, James Doig, Robert Bloch, John Foyster, Graeme Flanagan, John Clute, Darrell Schweitzer, Bruce Gillespie, Mike Glyer, Pamela Sargent, George Zebrowski (3 articles), John Litchen (3 articles), Patrick McGuire, Taral Wayne, and Fred Lerner.

The front cover is by Ditmar (Dick Jenssen), and the back cover, a DJFractal, is by Elaine Cochrane.
