Things To Come.  An absolutely fantastic film. Produced by Michael Korda, directed by William Cameron Menzies and written by H. G. Wells, based on his own works.  I don’t think that any science fiction author since has had such a wonderful opportunity and been gifted with such talent as working partners.

The first book appearance – AC McClurg, 1923. Cover by J. Allen St. John
When I was a kid growing up in Philadelphia, my Uncle George, who liked to read and played stride piano by ear, came over to the house one day and gave my family a big cardboard box full of hardback books. One of the books was a novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, Tarzan and the Golden Lion.

For years, pierre’s life was ordered around comics etc. First he couldn’t live without the Amazing Spider man and the FF, Tom Swift, Tarzan, then it was the most obscure Cthuluh Mythos story, and later missing paperbacks that later could be found with a simple Google search.
It all began innocently enough…
I Was a Teenaged Bibliophile
By Pierre V.

In case the cover of this month’s issue looks familiar it is because it is a slight re-working of a cover that David A. Hardy – the subject of this present art retrospective – prepared for the Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, the 60th anniversary issue of that iconic magazine to be exact (Oct/Nov 2009).
