Memories of the fantastic movies, TV shows, books and comics of my youth. Lots of clippings from my scrapbooks and articles from my magazine collection, as well as some vintage advertisements just for fun!

Outlaws of the Moon cover
(Click on images to view larger size.)
A 1968 paperback reprint of the original 1942 book by Edmond Hamilton, which is part of the Captain future series. This is a scan of my copy which I bought at a used bookstore in 1971.
I always enjoyed these old-fashioned pulp-style sci-fi book covers, almost as much as the story within, so I thought you might enjoy seeing some of them here too.
Born in the late 50's, a kid in the 60's, a teen in the 70's, I'm "forever-fourteen." Monsters, spooky stuff, sci-fi and Star Trek captured my imagination as a youth and the memories made will never fade. The profile photo symbolizes the efforts of my stepdad to rid me of my "childish" interests, as he called them; at which, not being a man of strong imagination, he failed.
