Okay now if there is EVER a book that screams nostalgia this is it I cannot begin well I guess I sort of am already to say what this book means to me Okay the book is old 1979 to be precise the art is varied to say the least and the content well a little shaky but I DO NOT CARE I first saw this in a 1980s department store one that we would go to every christmas to spend our christmas gift vouchers and yes it was all very stereotypical However because it was the 80s and pretty much a closed environment my brother and I were let loose to explore and yes they had a book department They had a copy of this book which I instantly galvanised to imploring my parents to let me buy it Sadly to no avail they said it was too old for me and too expensive so sadly I had to walk away form it although I did do my best to try and read most of it seemingly to never see it againNow years later I have a copy of the same book okay its not as in such good a condition and I guess some of the wow factor has worn off and like I say shows it's age but still the memories still come flooding back and the sheer fun of it even if it is a collection of crashed and wrecked space ships The text is really just a series of contrived pieces to justify the choice of artwork but who cares I guess we all have our white whales and over the years in book format at least I have collected my fair share of them but in this case for once I finally found it I am suddenly a very smug 10 year old all over again

Like the other books in the CowleyTTA series I've had my copy of 'Spacewrecks' for decades first getting hooked on them in the late 70s This entry and others from the author are hardly deep and meaningful sci fi with detailed characterisations and complex plots They are a series of very short stories framed around science fiction art of the period contextualised within a 'Star Trek' like universe with a human led organisation expanding throughout the galaxy Therein lies the real value of this book and otehrs by Cowley; the artwork of the illustrations is always enjoyable and the 'Terran Trade Authority' construct is well put together with some degree of complexity and potential for further workAs for the individual stories when Cowley produces longer narratives he does reasonably well 'The Warworld of Alshain' and 'Children of the Gods' are uite acceptable short stories whilst 'A Deadly Eden' has definite echoes of 'Star Trek' There are plenty of occasions where the reader can observe that Cowley has shoe horned his writing around the image he has adopted for his story and one glaring example where he or his editors missed the mark It must also be said that Cowley does not populate his short stories with memorable characters In fact there are only really two figures named in the book and of these only one has any back story any semblance of development I don't think it's fair to be too censorial of the author for this; it may be argued that space and the fictional ships he writes about are the real characters plus he has written a collection of short stories focused on sci fi art You can only really talk about how well he uses his palate and Cowley does a very handy job However if you want detailed character exposition go somewhere elseIn summary I enjoyed this book because of its illustrations because of the manner in which Cowley has used these to create an interesting science fiction universe and because it forms one long held part of my personal library
