Space Cowboys: A Lunacon Panel by N.E. Lilly

In March of 2007, before the ’zine had even launched, I attended Lunacon 50. While there, I was on the Space Cowboys panel with Ernest Lilley, Marvin Kaye, and Keith R.A. DeCandido. On April 7th, 2007, this feature became the first audio file published on, and distributed through our podCast channel.

“I always considered [the Star Wars] films Westerns. What made the classic Westerns of guys like John Ford great was that the stories they told were so simple that they ended up being deeply resonant and inspiring.”

Space Westerns, Jets Blasting!

(with apologies to Galaxy)

Jets blasting, Bat Durston came screeching down through the atmosphere of Bbllzznaj, a tiny planet seven billion light years from Sol. He cut out his super-hyper-drive for the landing…and at that point, a tall, lean spaceman stepped out of the tail assembly, proton gun-blaster in a space-tanned hand.

“Get back from those controls, Bat Durston,” the tall stranger lipped thinly. “You don’t know it, but this is your last space trip.”

Sound familiar? It should—it’s merely a western transplanted to some alien and impossible planet. If this is your idea of science fiction, then welcome to it! You’ll find it at!

What you’ll find at is the finest science fiction westerns, western science fiction, and outright space westerns…mixed, shaken, and stirred…by authors who can automatically switch over from the Western frontier to the final frontier; by people who know and love the space western genre…for people who also know and love it.
