It's...Astounding!

Along with my love of old science fiction, comes a love of old science fiction art. Here's a wonderful site that features many of the covers of the classic SF magazines Astounding and Amazing.

Take a look around the site. They have other excellent pages devoted to Kelly Freas and many other subjects.

Good stuff. I could stare at these for hours.
Now This Looks Interesting...

If you know me, or if you've read far enough into the posts here, you know I have a certain fondness for young adult science fiction (what we used to call "juneviles").

The problem is I'll often remember part of a plot--or even just a picture.

Now there's a site called Stump the Bookseller. Loganberry Books of Cleveland allows you to post questions, descriptions, etc., on their site of a book you are looking for. If the proprietor can't help you, maybe one of the members of the community can.

The service costs $2.00, but if you're awake at nights, trying to figure out who wrote that favorite book from your childhood, it might be worth it!
