This month's issue of Popshifter is dedicated to all things sci-fi and is brilliantly titled "Climb Onto the Nearest Star." The entire issue is fantastic, and is highly recommended reading. I wrote some pieces expressly for the (two?) NASA geeks out there:
Also, Spacelog is a relatively new Web site which presents mission transcripts in a linkable format; these links can be connected to social networking sites (i.e. Facebook and Twitter). This is a pretty awesome site for those interested in the second-by-second action associated with historical manned missions. Also, tooting my own horn: I transcribed the Mercury-Redstone 3 Freedom 7 PAO transcript.
