    NASA or MOMA? Is it art or a photo from a space probe? Pretty easy to tell the difference, if you ask me. http://t.co/r2GpbRMXbm

      I wish they would have had Google Earth links to show where these images came from

        I guess you could make it kind of a game and see if you could Google Earth similar images yourself. Then is Google Image search on “MOMA” (or other artistic key words) and find other pics that could be NASA images.
        I guess it’s true. We ARE living in a Google world.

      That was fun. I got most of them as soon as I looked at the picture, but there were a few that I really couldn’t tell and had to scroll down.

    Interesting to note that #scifi titles seem to dominate this list of the top 25 movie posters of all time. http://t.co/wnxd51wvMR

    Take a look at the rusty tops of fire hydrants and imagine they are alien planets. This is what they’d look like. http://t.co/9oJsM7NUlD

      I have a book on my shelf called “The Rivals of HG Wells”, and it features somewhat scifi-ish stories from his time by authors that at the time were more popular. The stories were all fun to read but none of them were taking the stories very seriously, they were more in the pulp genre fantastic short stories than serious novels. It’s companion book, “The Rival of Sherlock Holmes” is also a fun read.

          Post it anywhere you want. As long as you post. 🙂
          Are you reading SF again these days? I must say that with all my other interests in the past few years my SF reading has slowed to a crawl, but I’m still hanging in there.
          My CBIP is the Niven/Pournelle “Mote in Gods Eye”. Don’t know if it me getting older but this supposedly ‘great novel’ is just so so for me. Just too many extra characters that could just as easily been left out and this could have been a more succinct and smaller book. But just past half way, perhaps I haven’t gotten to the ‘good’ stuff yet. There certainly is something more than meets the eye going on.

          • avdezign (Cosmic) 9:40 am on September 23, 2012 Permalink

            I liked the complex lying that was involved the Mote, an enjoyable read, the sequel “Gripping Hand” was a total bore. For some reason of late I’ve been re-reading old novels that I keep around. Ender’s Game, Childhood’s End, Fountains of Paradise and am Currently reading a bio of Robert Llewellyn (Kryten from Red Dwarf) called “The Man in the Rubber Mask” and will be embarking on re-reading the Ringworld series right after.

    These covers for the French #scifi imprint Chute Libre are provocative, even today. Only in Europe, eh? Pity. http://t.co/xEqmoB08

      Some really nice stuff in those auctions. Anything by a ‘name’ artist are way to pricey (for me) but I’m surprised by the affordable cost of some really nice pieces by what I can only assume are ‘no name’ artists.

      Welcome back!

    To usher in the new year, here is the latest in our long line of pulp-themed science fiction calendars. 2012 marks the ninth time we've offered a calendar and judging from the thousands of downloadsthey get each year, they remain as popular as ever.
    Space babes in distress is a theme that never gets old so each month of the calendar displays a classic example of another harried female space explorer as depicted on the cover of pulp magazines from years gone by.
    Download your copy for free from http://www2.theendoftheuniverse.ca/calendar2012/calendar2012.pdf. If you print it out, be sure to scale it to fit your paper size. It's designed for letter-size paper, but if you use A4, or some other size, you will have to adjust your printer settings accordingly.
    If you want to check out previous editions, click on the following links to get the 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009,  2010  and 2011 installments.
    If you're new to TEOTU, don't just leech the calendar and run. Take a second to add our newsfeed to your reader or follow us on Twitter so you can get a regular injection of irregular science fiction links throughout the year.
    We hope your 2012 is a happy and prosperous one and that all of your science fiction dreams come true.
