Spacewreck, Ghostships and Derelicts of Space, Stewart Cowley
The Hamlyn Group, 1979
98 pp, 38 full color illustrations, 4 b/w illustrations
With the most evocative title in the series, Spacewreck is my favorite of the four TTA books. As the name implies, Spacewreck narrates a series of interstellar spaceship disasters, from radiation leaks, mutated food supplies and eerie disappearance of human crews from intact spacecraft. The artwork is uniformly to a high standard, with a good number of fold-out illustration, while the remaining images are large and well-printed to appreciate the finer details.
