Saucer Fleet free pdf This is the amazing sequel to "The Spaceship Handbook". Five of your favourite saucer movies, two TV shows, a comic strip and even a Disney ride are given the Spaceship Handbook treatment. Extensive backgrounds and production histories, plot synopses, detailed analyses of the hardware plus, of course, Jon Roger's incredible dimensioned data drawings! Included are some of the most significant Science Fiction films ever produced: "The Day the Earth Stood Still" - 'Klaatu, Barata, Nikto!' Serious political messages and hidden allegories. A truly great film in any genre- "Twin Earths" - Newspaper comic strip with a popular flying saucer theme by Oscar Lebeck (writer) and Alden McWilliams (artist) first appeared in June 1952 and ran until 1963- "War of the Worlds" - not really a saucer film, but the Martian War Machines are saucer-like and really cool! A tribute for the film's 50th anniversary- and, "This Island Earth" - another political message film, but not quite so serious. We may actually find out what an 'Interoceter' is "Forbidden Planet" - the greatest Science Fiction film of all time. We'll see. Put MGM on the Sci-Fi map, but beware of monsters from the Id! "Earth vs. the Flying Saucers" - a low-budget Harryhausen wonder that was several cuts above its 'Bmovie' brethren. More sophisticated than its title would suggest. "Disneyland Flying Saucers" - as a special bonus we'll have a chapter on a saucer you could actually ride in: the Disneyland 'Flying Saucer' ride that was a Tomorrow land 'E-Ticket' from 1961 to 1966. A patented cross between air hockey and bumper cars- "Lost in Space - OK", so this one's a TV show, but it brought sophisticated special effects to production TV a year ahead of Star Trek, and started a fan movement that continues unabated today- "The Invaders" - TV series ran from January 1967 to March 1968 (43 episodes). Alien beings from a dying planet come to Earth to make it their own. This book offers a detailed in-depth look at real flying saucers created right here on Earth. By examining the social history of flying saucers in this way, it may help you understand the UFO phenomenon in a different light, but our main mission is to help you discover some new facts about real flying saucers and the cause of their continuing presence in our society.
