Happy birthday to actor and filmmaker Terry Carter, known to Old School Sci Fi fans as Colonel Tigh from the original “Battlestar Galactica”.
After years of frustration at Asgard Press always being sold out of their magnificent pulp sci fi cover calendars, I took special precautions this year to order mine well in advance so I could look forward to a 2019 full of Old School Sci Fi adventure.
Then, I got a curiously small package in the mail containing the calendar on the far right.
Asgard Press’ glorious 11 X 14 inch illustrations have contracted to a disappointing 9 X 12 inches. Shame on you, Asgard Press. These masterpieces of our sci fi pop culture heritage should dominated the wall of my office, not timidly put in an appearance. A perusal of the Amazon ratings and reviews of these new, pint-sized calendars shows I am not alone in this opinion.
Happy birthday to two departed giants of science fiction.
Sir Arthur C. Clarke and Philip K. Dick.
