·       \4 Star Stories Issue 20

·     Hi Readers –

August, September, October –- In Earth’s northern hemisphere: you can still expect nights humming with the roar of insects, hot days full of brilliant sunlight, and dappled shade playing across sticky asphalt and crunchy grass. Time to grab a sweating glass of your favorite iced, summer beverage and search out your own spot of cool. And, while you're there, chill out by reading some rip-roaring cool adventures of the mind. Which is what we, here at 4 Star Stories, have for you this issue.

We are proud to present five such Science Fiction and Fantasy adventures for you to read and chill out with, as well as our thought-provoking article on Speculative Spaceships.

So, sit back, take a sip of your favorite chilled libation (ahhhh!), grab your mouse, and get ready to enjoy. We are headed out on an adventure….

Five exciting adventures and an essay on fantasy spaceships through the decades await you in Issue 20 of 4 Star Stories. Enjoy, and we’ll see you in Issue 21 of 4 Star Stories later this year!
