It all started with Dan Dare in the mid ‘50s. In the Eagle Comic and on Radio Luxembourg, a young Joe Gillespie learned of ‘spaceships’ and ‘Saturn’ – and was hooked.
Born in Belfast in 1945, he won a place at The Royal College of Art and graduated with a Master’s Degree in Visual Communication. He worked in the advertising industry in London before setting up his own company, Pixel Productions, developing interactive multimedia for Apple, Microsoft and other leading technological companies.
An ardent classic sci-fi reader, he used his writing skills developed from advertising copy-writing and penned numerous short stories and longer projects that unfortunately ran out of steam due to pressure of work.
Now retired to sunny Dorset, he lives a less hectic life involving bird watching, astronomy and catching-up on ideas to change the universe for the better.
