The Royal Mail commemorates from classic British cult science fiction in a new set of stamps
Coming on April 15 are a set of six new stamps from Royal Mail on the them of Classic British science fiction. It’s the usual suspects (and why not?!):
Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein
HG Wells The Time Machine
Aldous Huxley Brave New World
John Wyndham Day of the Triffids
Arthur C Clarke Childhood’s End
Doris Lessing Shakista.
We have to own up to only having read five of these — something we must remedy. The Royal Mail is no stranger to special releases, and in recent years we’ve had Star Wars, James Bond, Marvel, Harry Potter, Star Trek, Rupert the Bear and Doctor Who.
You can order your stamps now (including First Day Cover options) from the Royal Mail. There are also presentation packs and sheets available as well, as are some products for the other titles listed above (except for Doctor Who).
