IF one of your all time favorite SF movies of 1964 was ROBINSON CRUSOE ON MARS, or you remember the MAN IN SPACE television show with fond memories then you can thank Mr. Melchior. Robert Skotak's book, IB MELCHIOR MAN OF IMAGINATION, will enlighten you to Mr. Mechior's career from his early work on the Tom Corbett Space Cadet show to scripting some of the best SF TV and movies of the 1960's. The information is provided in an easy to read enjoyable format and is a valuable resource for SF movie and TV fans. I was interested in the chapter dedicated to the Tom Corbett Space Cadet show, but found that the book is a wealth of information about one of the early pioneers of TV and movie SF. The man behind these early SF works is truly a fellow Science Fiction fan who has given us "a sense of wonder" and deserves the title of Man of Imagination. Thanks to Robert Skotak for the research into a career that has touched and delighted many of us as we grew up and thanks to Mr. Melchior for those wonderful childhood memories.
