Reading this Week: Rocket Ship Galieo

This week I re-read another classic, Rocket Ship Galileo.

I was really young when I read this. I was maybe 13 years old. It was funny reading it again when I am 56.

This was written in 1947 and was filled with the post WWII optimism regarding space travel. It was one of his books written for the young adult science fiction market.

I love how naive it is. It also shows that he completely missed the fall of the educational system in the US.
It also still had Nazi's as the villains!

I have also been working this week on my collection of short stories and read a couple of other collections:

     Philip K. Dick
     Neil Gaiman
