Obsolete Press


OBSOLETE! #7, January 2013

$4.00 postage and handling

Our biggest issue yet! With a full color cover featuring artwork by Steve Taylor, the SCIFI/DIY issue is crammed full of original essays, fiction and artwork.

Scifi and DIY are like the literary and technological chocolate and peanut butter of geekdom. For many do-it-yourselfers, tinkerers, makers, hackers, hobbyists, citizen scientists and other bright and inventive individuals, scifi, fantasy and other flavors of “speculative fiction” have stoked the creative fires since before the time of Robert Louis Stevenson, through the era of H.G. Wells and the adventures of Tom Swift and up to Cory Doctorow’s “Makers”. OBSOLETE! explores the connections.

Featuring writing by: Tim Beckett, Walter Sun Chien, Rich Dana, Ric Driver, Rachel Haywire, Ben Miller, Ursula Pflug, Alou Randon, Robert Runte

Artwork by: Blair Gauntt, Slavko Mali, Steve Taylor

And a very special interview with Mick Farren
