New! Stories From the Golden Age of Science Fiction!
Noe Torres, author of “Aliens in the Forest” and “The Real Cowboys & Aliens,” has selected eight of his favorite science fiction stories from the 1950s for this outstanding collection. Included are tales that capture the essence of the 1950s, including masterpieces by Clifford D. Simak, Frederik Pohl, H. Beam Piper, Philip K. Dick, Murray Leinster, and Fritz Lieber. The impact and reach of these stories has been extensive, as all of them were adapted into radio dramas for the outstanding 1950s series “X Minus One,” which is still treasured by many today. The included stories also influenced many later literary and film ventures. For instance, Pohl’s story “Tunnel Under the World” is about a character who keeps re-living the same day over and over, similar to the dilemma faced by Phil Connors in the 1993 motion picture “Groundhog Day.” Others of these stories had an obvious influence on television shows such as “Star Trek,” “Lost in Space,” and “Twilight Zone.”
Texas UFO Museum & Research Library Opens!
We are happy to announce the grand opening of the Texas UFO Museum & Research Library web site at http://TexasUFOmuseum.com. There is no brick-and-mortar museum yet, but the online version of the museum is the first step toward establishing an actual, physical museum to house information about the state’s most noteworthy UFO cases. When you visit the museum, you will see eye-opening information about how UFOs, despite getting minimal media attention, have been a very important part of Texas history dating back to the 1800s. In fact, a UFO sighting by a Dallas-area farmer in 1878 is recognized as being the first instance of the word “saucer” being used to describe a UFO. The term “flying saucer” did not “officially” enter our vocabulary until 1947 – but there it was in Dallas-area newspapers way back in 1878.
The Texas UFO Museum features exhibits about all the major UFO cases from 1878 to the present, including the Lubbock Lights, Stephenville, the Del Rio UFO Crash, the Levelland sightings, the Cash-Landrum case, and many, many more! Be sure to visit the museum’s web site today!
