Capsule Science Fiction Reviews

I was born in 1955. By the traditional formula, that places the "Golden Age of Science Fiction" in 1968. I do not think it is an exageration to say that I read cubic yards of SF when I was young, most of it from the middle part of the century, most of it pretty bad stuff.

I still go on binges from time to time. During one such event in 1985 I started keeping these brief reviews and continued for about five years. I recently rediscovered the file and decided to put it on the web, just in the hope that someone browsing for an obscure title with a search engine will stumble across it. I'll add new reviews from time to time.

I am often startled to read my previous opinions, but I'm going to leave the original text alone.

I welcome your comments.
