word about the production qualities of the books. They're among
the best made and most handsomely illustrated of all the collectibles
I've ever seen. These are masterpieces in every

Jack Williamson Lectureship April
readers of Jack Williamson know "AKKA" as the name of the
super-weapon employed (and sometimes defeated!) in Williamson's classic
LEGION OF SPACE novels. Dr. Williamson graciously gave Haffner Press
use of the "AKKA" moniker as the name for our planned "occasional
newsletter" back in 1999. Only a single issue of the late 90s AKKA was
published (and good luck tracking one down!).
in the 21st Century, Haffner Press' AKKAs are now the "occasional
downloadable excerpts" of some of our titles. Like the subtitle says:
"a peek inside our publications."
Some AKKAs will cover recent titles, and some will feature previously
AKKAs may contain errata (correcting typos, mis-attributions, etc.),
but more fun are the excerpts: fiction, graphical content, and maybe a
surprise or two.
We hope you enjoy AKKA as we continue our publishing programs. There
are a lot of projects currently underway:
• The Collected Stories of Jack Williamson
• The Collected Edmond Hamilton
• Story Collections by Leigh Brackett
• Tomes by Henry Kuttner & C. L. Moore
and some really nice projects in the works for fans of space-opera
& planetary romance.
So, sit back, power up your atomic .pdf reader, and ready, steady, go
get your AKKAs!
