In the pages of FUTURES PAST we will be covering, in detail, the birth and development of modern science fiction over its first 50 years – from 1926 to 1975.

Designed in a yearbook format, each volume of FUTURES PAST will cover all the works, people, organizations, events and much more, in exhaustive, detail.Relive novels such as LAST AND FIRST MEN, GALACTIC PATROL, and WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE all the way to more recent classics such as 1984, DUNE, and THE LEFT HAND OF DARKNESS.Follow the early careers of legends such as Bradbury, Clarke, Heinlein, Sturgeon, Asimov, Leinster and many others, year by year, story by story and novel by novel.Learn about and even listen to hundreds of “old time radio” plays produced for shows such as DIMENSION X and BEYOND TOMORROW.Attend the major conventions such as the first Worldcon held in New York City in 1939.

Read all the details, the award winners and the activities. See photos and even video taken at some of the later conventions. Hear about it from the people who were there.There will even be coverage of amateur clubs and fanzines over the years, beginning with THE COMET published in 1930 by the Science Correspondence Club in Chicago.Yes, every book, every magazine, every film, convention, and so much more!

FUTURES PAST is dedicated to all those amazing people who helped to shape our modern world by giving us a sense of wonder, by showing us possible futures and addressing social issues long before they touched the mainstream, and by simply daring to ask, “what if…” Our goal at FUTURES PAST is to keep alive the people, works and memories of a great genre and introduce them to a whole new generation of readers, thinkers and dreamers.
