Hadrosaur Productions is committed to bringing you the finest science fiction and fantasy. They produce audio tapes, publish the magazine, Hadrosaur Tales, and collections of short fiction and novels.

Kumie Wise founded Hadrosaur Productions in 1994 as part of a business project at the University of Arizona. She wanted to present science fiction fans with the most dynamic audio productions of science-fiction anywhere. She, along with fellow student, Melissa Guy, developed the original business plan and marketing strategy for The Pirates of Sufiro audio series, written by author and astronomer, David L. Summers. After the success of Pirates of Sufiro, Hadrosaur Productions diversified into print.

In 1995, Hadrosaur Productions, with Kumie still at the helm, moved from Tucson, Arizona to the current offices in Las Cruces, New Mexico. David Summers, author of The Pirates of Sufiro joined the staff as editorial director. William Grother joined as publisher. Together, they created Hadrosaur Tales a science fiction and fantasy anthology series.

The work of Wayne James has appeared in Hadrosaur Tales 5,  7, and is featured in the upcoming Hadrosaur 8---planned for release in time for Christmas.


Definitions of Science Fiction by writers

Isaac Asimov
Modern science fiction is the only form of literature that consistently considers the nature of the changes that face us, the possible consequences, and the possible solutions. 

Ray Bradbury
Science fiction is really sociological studies of the future, things that the writer believes are going to happen by putting two and two together.

Damon Knight
What we get from science fiction---what keeps us reading it, in spite of our doubts and occasional disgust---is not different from the thing that makes mainstream stories rewarding, but only expressed differently. We live on a minute island of known things. Our undiminished wonder at the mystery which surrounds us is what makes us human. In science fiction we can approach that mystery, not in small, everyday symbols, but in bigger ones of space and time.
