Publication history

Starships & Spacemen was designed by Leonard H. Kanterman, M.D., with art by Rick Bryant, and was published by Fantasy Games Unlimited in 1978 as an 86-page book with two cardstock reference sheets.[1]

Reception

Richard Bartucci reviewed Starships & Spacemen in The Space Gamer No. 18.[2] Bartucci commented that "With all of the SF genre to draw upon, Dr. Kanterman has restricted himself almost entirely to a universe that has been so thoroughly explored and documented that further exposition is just wearisome."[2]
