The first issue of Starfire was published in 1986, and the fifth issue appeared in 1994. These years encompass Volume One, the constituent issues of which have long been out of print and appear but rarely on the second-hand market. This selection of articles and artwork from these first five issues is newly typeset, and the artwork has wherever possible been freshly scanned to give sharper and clearer reproduction.
Ecpyrosis is an alluring, informative and substantial publication, 304 pages long and printed on Essential Velvet, a weighty, good quality coated paper. There are sixteen articles drawn from the five issues of Starfire, together with the best of the artwork. Also included are two new colour plates: a frontispiece consisting of detail from the cover artwork by Kyle Fite, and an endispiece of the covers of the constituent issues of Starfire. Ecpyrosis is available in a robust, sewn-bound softbound, and is now available for advance ordering. Contents of Ecpyrosis include:
