LOST IN SPACE PUBLICATIONS

Lost in Space has probably featured in more magazines and books than any of the other Irwin Allen TV shows and with the 1998 movie and the recent three season Netflix reboot, the show has rarely been out of the media. As we gradually go through all our boxes of magazines and books, we will be adding them to our publications galleries throughout the IANN website. Below we list some of the more recent publications that you may enjoy reading.

If you have written any books or articles, or have any other publications (or clippings) in your collection that we have yet to feature, we would welcome scans (or photos if you don't have a scanner) of the front and index pages, plus the articles mentioning or discussing Lost in Space. You can send any contributions via our Contact Page and please let us know any details such as publication date, issue numbers, etc., plus your name (or nickname if preferred) to credit when we show the publication. Thank you to all authors and contributors.

Lost in Space Design: No Place to Hide

Lost in Space Design: No Place to Hide

Written by Robert Rowe and edited by Jack Hagerty. 80 page softcover book with colour and black and white photos and illustrations.

Publisher's Description:

Industry insider Robert Rowe was given unprecedented access to the Fox Television archives when he started researching Lost in Space in the mid '80s. For over a decade, he continued to pore over production documents and interview the craftsmen responsible for creating the show. The result was The Jupiter 2 Repair Manual, a guide on the workings of the ship for the writers of the stillborn LiS reunion TV special. Fans of the show will be eternally grateful for Robert's efforts since those archives are no longer accessible, and most of the people responsible for the series are no longer with us.

To make this invaluable information available to the show's fans world-wide, Robert has expanded the Jupiter 2 Repair Manual into a series of Lost in Space Design books. This first one covers the creation of the original pilot episode, "No Place to Hide."

Lost in Space Jupiter 2 Technical Guide

Featuring the fantastic blueprints of Geoffrey Hardy, 3D renderings by Christopher Krieg, technical descriptions by William Wolod and edited by Jack Hagerty. 110 page softcover book with colour and black and white photos and illustrations.

Publisher's Description:

Irwin Allen's outer space adventure series, Lost in Space, continues to amaze. Now 45 years after it debuted on CBS, folks are still enthralled by the adventures of the "Space Family Robinson" travelling around the galaxy in their iconic spaceship, the Jupiter 2.

This book takes over where previous fan generated efforts have left off. LiS wasn't just a "monster-of-the-week" show. In fact, considerable research into real space flight and serious science fiction concepts of space travel went into the show's design. Vestiges of this research can still be found in the function of the Jupiter 2 and the other equipment of the expedition.

Many of the fans, who watched the show as wide-eyed youngsters, went on to write the "tech manuals" that, with the rise of the Internet, have spread worldwide. The problem is that many of those works were more rooted in fantasy than the show was. This book changes that. Written by professionals and edited by an aerospace engineer, it makes the hardware as real as possible while remaining true to the stories. With seeming half of fandom writing stories and designing games for the other half, we expect this to become the standard reference for the expedition that was "Lost in Space."
