Alba Ad Astra: Scotland’s Forgotten History of Space Exploration!

Back in 2009, Transreal Fiction hosted the original Alba Ad Astra exhibition, instigated & curated by artist Madeleine Shepherd, in it’s original premises at Cowgatehead. It was quite a success and the 48 pp programme/booklet published to coincide with it was also well received and sold well.

And now, finally, the book is back! Bigger and better! Squarebound, 148 pages, even more full colour photos, with more prose and extra documentation, from an extended range of contributors.
With Introductions from both Ken MacLeod (now also a contributor) and Pippa Goldschmidt!

Physical copies are now in stock at Transreal Fiction, or it’s available as an e-book direct from the publishers, Shoreline of Infinity, at
