Jack_Wylde writes about Journey into Space

Charles Chilton


Radio: Journey into Space.
Creator: Charles Chilton

Encapsulated. Would you recommend this? why?

Did you knowe thgis is still available on audio? This was a must for me as a small boy .... my big treat of the week!

Time and Space: When and where I first encountered it

I heard it first time around, I'm 60 now so you can guess how long ago that was, and then a few years ago on tape from a library.

Recollection and revelations

It simply drew me into SF in a big way ... read all three of the books. They were superb stuff for the time.

Before this...

The Time machine

I loved it and then I read War of the Worlds and the rest of Wells's SF

After This

Everything I could get my hands on ... Capt W.E. John's books were next ... kid's stuff but great!

Click Alert the moderator to this recollection if you see something on this page that breaks the house rules.

Highly recommended
