EL SIGLO VEINTE DE ALBERT ROBIDA. Albert Robida. HG Wells. Uncharted islands and lost souls The pulp fiction of the early 20th century favoured remote or uncharted islands as locations for the bizarre and the fantastic; in isolated jungles all manner of savage and grotesque behaviour could take place out of sight of the civilised world.

Whenever people ask me who my favorite science fiction artist is, I always say Frank R. Paul. Most sci-fi art simply washes over me, like so much water in an ocean. But every once in a while, I come across something so marvelous, so different that I have to stop and say, WOW.

ACE SF Doubles Image Library - D Letter-Number series - science fiction - science fiction writers and artists. D-13 THEODORE S. DRACHMAN Cry Plague (cover by Lou Marchetti; 1953; listed as "ACE original") and D-13b LESLIE EDGLEY The Judas Goat (1953; listed as "complete and unabridged") The Drachman story is often listed as the first of the SF stories in an ACE double format (even though it is backed with the Edgley mystery).

However, most compilers list D-31 as the first (true) SF ACE Double. The listing "complete and unabridged" is a result of action by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) in the post-WWII publishing industry. D-31 A. A.E. van VOGT (1912 - 2000) was born in Canada and moved to the U.S. in 1944, by which time he was well-established as one of John W.

LA LONGEVA COLECCIÓN ESPACIO - José Carlos Canalda - Opinion.Ensayo. Catálogo de la literatura de ciencia ficción española II (1953-1969) Hace ya año y medio que, en estas mismas líneas, se publicó una primera parte de un catálogo de obras de ciencia ficción española recopilado por Mariano Martín Rodríguez.

Este catálogo, del que ofrecemos ahora una segunda parte se basa en las investigaciones del autor antes citado y de la recopilación que el Dr. Agustín Jaureguizar realizó durante casi toda su vida de investigador y bibliófilo especializado en la ciencia ficción. En esta segunda parte del catálogo vamos a llegar hasta finales de los años 60 comenzando en 1953. Reitero la llamada que hice en la entrega anterior a los lectores para que si tienen alguna aportación novedosa que incorporar no duden en comunicarse con nosotros. En 1953 comienza a distribuirse una de las colecciones míticas, tal vez por ser una de las primeras, de la ciencia ficción española como es Futuro.
