    Here’s a nice write-up on the effort to revive the legendary Amazing Stories brand on the web. http://t.co/epfHypDthL

    Heroes of the North sure is cheesy, but a friend appears in the latest webisode so thought I’d give it a shout out. http://t.co/nLk8H2xp

    The companion website to the Library of America’s American Science Fiction collection is very slick and informative. http://t.co/nZQ7BGbv

      The $5 price is OK, but the $15 shipping is nuts. Besides, I don’t think I could get myself to ever watch a ‘tape’ again, much less buy one. Nope. Either I find it in some cheap bin someday or I don’t think I’ll ever get to watch it. I would not be surprised to see it get picked up on DVD some day though. Some of the most obscure (and terrible) horror films are always getting the DVD treatment. There are lots of company that excel at that sort of thing. You’d also be surprised at the lengths to go to to get as good a print that they can.

      Never heard of it. I suspect it’s one of those titles that you can find in a thrift store on VHS, but good luck finding it on DVD or online. I found this listing for a tape on eBay: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Robo-Man-1973-Elliott-Gould-Trevor-Howard-Very-Rare-/200796205476?pt=VHS&hash=item2ec062f1a4#ht_500wt_898

      Nice site. I happen to click on the ‘cover gallery’ which not only contained covers for novels and magazines but a movie poster for “Who?” starring Elliot Gould and Trevor Howard. Never knew there was a film now I’m very curious. Anyone ever see it?
      Here’s the IMDB link:

    Another series is looking for Kickstarter funding. I don’t want knick-knacks as a reward, I want a return on my money! http://t.co/NOZuyjTP

      I am also backing it now. We need more good s-f on tv.

        It is a worthy project, but the thing that bugs me about Kickstarter is that it is basically recruiting a bunch of people to invest in an endeavour, but you never see your money again. In essence, it’s charity, not an investment.

        If you kick in a substantial amount, you might get something, like a t-shirt or an autograph, but if the venture becomes profitable, you don’t get any share in the profits.

        Admittedly, $10, $20 or even $1,000 is not a huge amount of money in the overall funding of such a project, but it would be nice to generate a profit from your contribution, no matter how small.

        As for good scifi on TV, I’m at the point where I’m just trying to catch up on all of the good, old scifi on TV that I missed over the years. I’m kind of the same way with books.

    Star Wars, as told with icons, might make sense if you’ve seen the movie, but would be incomprehensible if you hadn’t. http://t.co/oWSI5uJH

    The creator of web series Solo talks about what happens if your show doesn’t hit it big, which describes most of them. http://ow.ly/63xbJ

    Just reading Ansible and wonder how Fancyclopedia 3 differs from the Fanac Fan History Project of the Fan History Wiki. http://ow.ly/5Snn7

    I’m a big fan of John Clute’s Science Fiction Encyclopedia. Interested to see an updated, online edition is on the way. http://ow.ly/5wzhe
