Iconic British science fiction magazine SXFX will celebrate its 21st anniversary later this year, so here’s a quick look back at some of the articles from the rarely seen and much sought after first issue. Articles include a raucous talk with Lori Petty and Naomi Watts about the upcoming Tank Girl movie; a chat with the new Doctor Who on the set of his long-awaited TV turn; a conversation with Jonathan Frakes about his return to the Star Trek franchise with his on-going role on new series Voyager; Iain F. Banks discussing his Culture's Dawn trilogy; a review of the first six episodes of David Lynch's new TV show, The X-Files; a look ahead at the launch line-up for Nintendo's new Play Station console; and even an interview with GRR Martin about his long-awaited new book.
You may recognize me from my many comments in trans-related MetaFilter threads as both the partner and the parent of transgendered people. I was recently asked to contribute an essay about my five-year-old son's gender history to Friends Journal, a national Quaker magazine. Here it is!
