Great Space Battles, Stewart Cowley & Charles Herridge
The Hamlyn Group, 1979
96 pp, 44 full color illustrations, 10 b/w illustrations
As humans make their way into space, they will probably find something to fight over and Great Space Battles presents two narratives of our future, interstellar strife. Nonetheless, I’m an optimist for our future, but the topic does permit some good sci-fi artwork.
The first chapter recalls a fictional war against another human-like species, while the book’s second half presents several smaller vignette chapters of the conflicts beyond the stars.
