This week Steve says a painful farewell to a special fan, and reviews the current (Sept./Oct.) issue of The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction. Please take a look!
An all-new follow-up to Steve’s Ace Doubles columns. He’s doubled up with laughter, because he’s doubling his Ace writings!
For the last of his NaNoWriMo “redux“ columns, Steve finishes his look at Ace Doubles cover illustrators. Nostalgia, indeed! Good old stuff from the Good Old Days!
Continuing his retro-look at some older columns, Steve talks about Ace Doubles and their cover art. We’re talking about The Good Old Stuff, in both writing and SF illustration. Get Some Now!
Steve reviews the current F&SF. It’s still a great magazine! Get it now while it’s still on the stands!
Is that a Fuzzy Bolo hanging from your rear view mirror, or are you just a fan of Piper and Laumer?
This week Steve’s all over the map. He reviews an old YA by Andre Norton, talks about cover artists (including Ed Emshwiller) and answers a comment from a reader. Oh, and he throws in a little egoboo for himself.
Can you judge a book by multiple covers?
The January/February issue of The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction (F&SF) is under review by Steve, who likes it a lot, even though a couple of the stories kind of depressed him. You will probably like it too!
Steve once again covers the ubiquitous Stephen King, who’s got a new collection of short stories out. A new collection of King is usually something to crow about, and this one’s no exception.
50s redux – Super Science Fiction!
A gallery of illustrations for Heinlein’s Have Space Suit – Will Travel, (Soon to be a major motion picture?)
The medium is not the message – except sometimes it is.
As we transit from Christmas to New Years let’s take a look back at some of the images that got left behind.
Since this is my last post before Christmas I feel I should at least acknowledge the holiday season. Not everybody celebrates, true, but in this day and age everybody knows about it. So, Christmas is a tradition filled with iconic images, not the least of which is the jolly fat man in the red suit. […]
Depictions of Conan have evolved over the years, from Emshwiller to Brundage to Arnold and now, to Jackson.
I seem to be unable to do single columns about stuff I’m passionate about. Heinlein is no exception. Robert A. Heinlein, who was characterized as the “Dean of Science Fiction,” though he was not necessarily the oldest or the best writer of SF during his lifetime, began his writing career before he went back into […]
The Winston SF series – part two – in all it’s juvenile glory. Steve has some good info on how to obtain copies, reprints and replacement dust jackets.
The art work gracing the covers of (most) Ace doubles was credited, another debt we owe Donald A. Wollheim.
As I was downloading some bid sheets this week, in preparation for packing up the art to be displayed at the LoneStarCon3 Art Show, the 71st World Science Fiction Convention (San Antonio TX) I was suddenly reminded that someone needs to speak up for the Award that matters most to artists in the field: the […]
