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!

More Sci-Fi Book covers
As a young boy and teen I devoured the old science fiction novels I picked up at the used bookstore. Here are a few of the cool covers from some off my bookshelf...

Burl realised he should have been suspicious of a videophone booth way out here.
Spreading his arms like the robot did nothing to help him get away faster.
G'nrex had 500 quatloos riding on this guy and he wasn't about to let him rabbit.
As he faded away, Sam knew he shouldn't have tried to put the space fireflies in a bottle.
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.
