5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Robin Benson on August 12, 2001
Format: Paperback
I love books about the backwaters of American popular culture so I was pleased to get a copy of Leslie Singer's affectionate look at ray guns of the past. The hundred color photos in this nicely presented book will provoke plenty of nostalgia for those who grew up with Buck Rogers. Mr Singer's favorite is the Atomic Disintergrator (page 18) but my favorite is the space car (page 48) streamline curves straight out of the New York World's Fair in 1939, though it was made by Wannatoys in the fifties. Not a gun but it looks so good Singer included it anyway!

If you are really into the subject have a look at: Ray Gun by Eugene Metcalf and Frank Maresca, plenty of excellent color photos, including a quite stunning gun (page 101) from sixties England, the Space Outlaw Gun. There is also a selection of film posters and boxes the guns came in. Both books have a useful bibliography and 'Ray Gun' even lists web sites.

What a wonderful book of old futuristic toy guns. I love that fantastic era of our childhood history. Thanks! Chris

Nicely done, great quality photos and good background but I suspect there are a lot more rayguns that could have been reviewed - not bad for the time is was printed but I'd like to see an updated versino
