A batch of antique science fiction today, most of which belonged to my brother Mike originally. Included are books in the Fotonovel form, which in the days before VCRs were the closest thing poor folks could have to watching their favorite episodes whenever they wanted. There are a few other publishing anomalies included. Flight From Yesterday/Envoy To New Worlds is an Ace Double, two books printed together with two front covers, upside down to each other, that you flip depending on which volume you want to read. The Perry Rhodan book is volume 43 in a long serial written by many different authors, and includes news, previews, illustrations and short stories like the old pulps.

Book Count: 1993.

Wow. Those are some old faves! The Fotonovels were mine, I was kind of a Fotonovel fiend.

Indeed. Looking back, I should have said most of them belonged to you.
