Slovak SF-magazine “Jupiter”: Issue on space opera


Magazine Jupiter: Logo

Jupiter is a Slovak magazine on science-fiction, edited by Martin Roger Kralik. The latest issue is number 7 on the special topic “space opera” and it will come out these days.

Jupiter 7: Space Opera

Headliner for this issue is an interview with David Gerrold. He is a famous science-fiction author, but I guess fans know him best for bringing the lovely purring alien furballs – the so called tribbles – into the Star Trek universe.

Main content is made up by stories of Slovak authors, among them the winners of the Karel Čapek Awards,  Lenona Štibláriková and Marek Slabej, who won the award of the popular magazine Fantazia.

But also foreign authors are contributors, such as the Czech Jana Rečková and – of course my personal highlight – I ! (I am Austrian and my award-winning story Die Duftorgel –  The Scent Organ – was translated from the German language for Jupiter 7. You can imagine how happy I am about it !)
