Biographical / Historical

In 1873, R. D. Mullen began his publication Science Fiction Studies at DePauw University in Indiana. The publication was, as the name implied, dedicated to the review and study of science fiction. It released three times a year, and is still in publication. The symbol for the publication is a moon with a face, with a rocket stuck into one of its eyes. This symbol is well known and comes from "Le Voyage dans la Lune", a French sci-fi movie released in 1902. The membership to Science Fiction Studies is selective and based on referral, not application.
