BOOKS: Yesterday's Art in Worlds of Tomorrow

Published on .

Are Those Tractor Beams?
From Collectors Press (www.collectorspress.com), via the stars beyond, comes the way cool, retro-rockety Worlds of Tomorrow: The Amazing Universe of Science Fiction Art. To quote from the promo lit: "Teeming with gigantic insects, spaceships and scantily-clad heroines, the science fiction pulp magazines and book covers of the 1920s through the 1960s represent a generation's vision of the future. Written by lifetime science fiction collector, fan and B-movie icon Forrest J. Ackerman with Brad Linaweaver, more than 275 beautifully displayed science fiction covers come back to life in text and chapters grouped by theme." And our PDF showcase is grouped around a theme, too. Clue: it's not gigantic insects. You go, space girls!
