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. Whatever else I'm doing becomes irrelevant and I stare at that image until it burns into my consciousness. Artwork (c) Frank R.

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. To counter the wide-spread belief by the book-buying public that paperback books were always shortened version of the original hardcover texts, publishers were required by the FTC to prominently indicate on the front cover if there was an original title (often shown in parentheses) and to state that the book was either an "abridgement" or identical to the original text (listed as "complete and unabridged").

Catálogo de la literatura de ciencia ficción española II (1953-1969)

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.
