80 pages (including covers)
Cover price: $1.75
Starlog reaches a new high in page-count with this 80-page issue, which is its first issue devoted to the SF-TV season. On an arcane design note, the magazine has finally ditched the above-the-logo cover line of "Fantastic color photos!" It seems that after eight issues, someone finally decided that that was too-valuable real estate to use for such a non-specific plug. More arcana: This is the first issue in which the "next issue" information includes specific information about articles, rather than just an on-sale date. Interestingly, the article info and the on-sale date are in separate boxes on different pages. Alas, progress is slow.
"One of the fans sent me a copy of Starlog recently, the one with the articles on UFO and Space: 1999. It's a very good magazine and I'm very grateful it exists. It's a great help to the fans who are widely scattered across the States. It unites them, informs them. There is a very real need for a magazine like Starlog. If I didn't believe that, I wouldn't be sitting here now, talking."
