Participates in 5 items
Gideon Marcus is a professional space historian, author, and public speaker with a passion for teaching. He literally wrote the book on the early unmanned American space program in a series of articles for Quest: Space Quarterly. His first published fiction, "Andy and Tina," is the lead tale in the anthology Tales of Alternate Earths 2, on sale this month. And look for the story of Kitra, his first novel in a YA space adventure series, available soon.

Gideon is also the founder of the Serling-Award winning and Hugo-nominated web project, galacticjourney.org, the mission of which is to recover the lost voices of SFF and the Space Race, making the past relevant to today. To that end, he has assembled a diverse team of twenty individuals, covering Science Fact and Fiction across the globe as it existed exactly 55 years ago. His educational series of lectures/panels, performed at conventions and public venues across the West Coast, are must-see events, both entertaining and enlightening. He hopes you will come join the Journey, at WorldCon...and beyond!
