Literary Slumming: August Derleth and Marc R Schorer
By GW Thomas Mark R Schorer It is easy for readers like myself to forget that Weird Tales writers and other pulpsters had literary ambitions. Dwelling in my fan-boy bubble, I (and many others as well) think that our favorite writers would be proud of their ...

Close to Edge: Albums for Science Fiction Fans [Guest Post]
By GW Thomas I think the first sign that you're "getting old" is you start wishing everything was the way it "used to be." In most things, I can stop myself and ask, "Now is this really any worse?" You have to remember I survived disco. It helps you keep yo...

The Year in Movies: 1929
The Mysterious Island (1929) About the only thing this movie has in common with Jules Verne's novel is the title, but that's a-okay. There is a reclusive scientist (Lionel Barrymore) with a submarine on an island; it's just that everyone knows he's there. W...
