Book about Sci-Fi writers

Postby Humboldt Steve » Sun Jun 30, 2019 11:06 am

Amazed this thread is still active. If you want a book about the early days of Sci-Fi and the people who made it happen, "Astounding" by Alec Nevala-Lee delves into the pulp magazine and its authors, going in-depth into their lives, warts and all. It's both good and bad to find out the titans of early Sci-Fi were a bunch of nerds.

It does lurch back to life every so often.

Speaking if which! Happy 4th of July and/or Thursday, as appropriate.

It's been so quiet I had to comment somewhere. The word lurch is the prompt.

Grab the granny gear and lurch forward slowly inch by inch.
