San Francisco, CA, November 6, 2013—Most science fiction authors weave their stories with words. Authors Peter Reid and Tim Goddard use LEGO®. In the full-color, gorgeous LEGO Space (No Starch Press, November 2013, 216 pp., 4C, $24.95, ISBN 9781593275211), Reid and Goddard use photographs of intricate LEGO models to tell a tale of exploration and intrigue that's sure to inspire science fiction fans and LEGO enthusiasts of all ages.

This stunning hardcover book features custom models of sleek starships, cool robots, creepy aliens, fearsome space pirates, and much more. The latest from No Starch Press (publisher of such best sellers as Beautiful LEGO and The LEGO Adventure Book) takes readers on a fantastic voyage from Sputnik to a spacefaring civilization hundreds of years in the future. Readers will immerse themselves in photos of planets, hangars, spaceports, and moon bases as they experience a story of exploration, first contact, and sabotage.

A selection of step-by-step building instructions lets readers build their own cosmic creations at home. And in 2014 the LEGO Group will produce Peter Reid's incredible Exo Suit, featured in this book, as LEGO CUUSOO set #006—only the sixth fan-created model ever produced in the company's history. In the meantime, readers can enjoy Reid and Goddard’s incredible world in LEGO Space.

LEGO Space will be appearing in bookstores everywhere in November 2013.
