Timeless Adventures in Space

The much anticipated Ridley Scotts' prequel to his Alien franchise opened to cinemas in Singapore yesterday. I will watch it next week and buy the DVD when it comes out too. That will complete my Alien many-logy box-set. In any case, I hope you enjoy my little humorous effort in combining the 1950s covers of Super Sci-fi Magazine with that of the Prometheus movie poster, showing once again, and after all these years, that horrors and unspeakable creatures still exist in space and in our imagination. And oh, RIP Mr Ray Bradbury. Your Illustrated Man was one of my first sci-fi books and I loved the humanity and compassion in your stories. They also informed me for the very first time that even as we dream of an Utopian time when space travel is universal, the sad truth is that space travel, if it happens, will only be afforded by the very rich and privileged. But that doesn't mean we have to stop dreaming or inventing new spaceships. RIP, Mr Magician.

Kudos to this website for the SSF pics:
