James Gunn’s Ad Astra combines the best parts of creative magazines and scholarly journals and brings them to Web. This site will showcase the imaginations of creators and fans, and will show the research and study of scholars inspired by speculative fiction.

Our initial publication launched in June of 2012. All submissions will be reviewed by volunteer readers and editors. All research articles will be reviewed by peers.

We are a volunteer organization inspired by the Gunn-era Center for the Study of Science Fiction, the legacy of which continues with the new Ad Astra Center for Science Fiction & the Speculative Imagination.
