The Thunder Child is proud to announce its first science fiction quiz book, the Eye Sci Fi edition (that is, movies).
There’s nothing new under the sun, and many of today’s best science fiction movies are either remakes, homages, or owe a debt of gratitude to the classic movies of the 1950s…the “radiation theater” where atomic testing was rampant and so were giant bugs of all kinds. When aliens visited us…and took us over, and when we first reached out and explored the stars.
Do you like Alien? Check out It! The Terror From Beyond the Stars. Did you like The Terminator? Check out The Invisible Boy. Did you like Star Trek: TOS? Check out Forbidden Planet.
But of course you like them, which is why you’re going to test your knowledge of radiation theater with this quiz book. Over 200 questions, and profusely illustrated.
