Steve takes you back to 1954, when newspapers cost a nickel and a bus trip through town was a dime. Back then SF writers were real men and women, not like today’s namby-pamby… er, he finds a lot of old SF fun and involving to read. He hopes you will too.
While trying to find a “good old” SF movie, Steve stumbles on a 1958 epic called “Space Master X-7,” which is kind of a pre-apocalyptic movie. Will the world end?
Again, Steve reviews a retro movie from the ‘50s. He must like them… except we don’t think he liked this one!
Some fans don’t like old black-and-white movies. This one, while not without a certain charm, may be part of the reason. Or not… you decide!
This week Steve retros back to 1958, taking a look at a fantasy musical, “Damn Yankees,” with Tab Hunter and Gwen Verdon. Did he like it? Seems like it, doesn’t it?
Exploring the fictional Professor Bernard Quatermass, whose experiments lie (as Rod Serling says) “between the pit of man’s fears, and the summit of his knowledge”! Go get some!
Following on the heels of his Heinlein columns, Steve decides to retro review The Door Into Summer. Is it worth reading? Well… that depends. Read this and find out.
A lot of old (’50s and early ’60s) SF was written by women under masculine or masculine-sounding names. One of the best was Andre Norton. Join Steve in a look at this terrific action/adventure SF like they “just don’t write anymore!”
