or rather, in Vulcan. Vulcan, Alberta, Canada, founded in the 1900s.
As I suggest in my blog entry (Your Child Can Be Born on Vulcan), wouldn’t it be totally cool for your child to be born in Vulcan? If you’re nine months pregnant, and healthy with it, and have the funds, why not give it a try?
Then, whenever your child is asked where he or she is from, they’ll be able to say with perfect truth, Vulcan.
Bill Warren is perhaps best known for his seminal books on science fiction movies of the 1950s, Keep Watching the Skies, first published in two volumes in the 1980s, recently released in an expanded and updated version.
Bill was kind enough to give our Matt Sanborn an interview:
Bill Warren Interview
Surfers, tourists, and local Los Angelenos alike were stunned yesterday morning by a rather HUGE mystery: the discovery of 15 foot long footprints in the sand at Santa Monica Pier!
A local fisherman was perhaps the only person who caught a glimpse of the creature responsible. “Everything started shaking,” he said. “Then I saw this thing. Bigger than any whale…eyes dark and menacing, teeth as big as the poles under the pier here.” Police are cautioning people not to panic, and to be careful not to fall into the deep footprints on the beach. Residents and tourists are wondering what kind of monster could be responsible for footprints so massive.

Few TV shows have fans 40 years after they first aired. Star Trek is one… Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea is another.
VTTBOTS expert Linda Delaney brings us tinto the world of the show, to find why this is so.
The fourth Doctor, Tom Baker, appeared in his first four-part serial, Robot, to inaugurate his new regeneration. For this first season, UNIT played a prominent role, and the Doctor had two companions, Ian Marter’s Harry Sullivan and Elisabeth Sladen’s Sarah Jane Smith. It was novelized by Terrance Dicks as The Giant Robot, and it is this book that Tom Baker reads, for BBC Radio 7, in 5 parts.
