Celebrating Jack Ketchum

Soraya Murillo Hernandez

​Fish Out of Water: The Man Who Fell to Earth

​​Daniel M. Kimmel

Angela Yuriko Smith

Autumn approaches, and with it comes a time of dark magic. In this issue we celebrate the fantastical, the foreign and the fatalistic. We have kallikantzaroi on a mission, banana Popsicle munching bombs, alien friends happy to lend more than a hand, a band that really puts themselves into their music and part one of Flashlight, Knife and Flowered Crown, an electrifying, modern fairy tale.

Poetry, flash fiction and keen illustration add variety to the mix. An Spanish interview of Jack Ketchum by Soraya Murillo Hernandez has been translated to celebrate his birthday November 10. Daniel M. Kimmel remembers the cult classic sci-fi movie The Man Who Fell to Earth.




Space and Time Magazine has been putting some of the best speculative fiction and poetry in ink for over five decades—a must-read for true fans of the strange and unusual. Readers will discover the rising stars of genre fiction alongside industry staples like Jessica A. Salmonson, Norman Spinrad, Jack Ketchum, and Aliette de Bodard.
