[June 27, 1960] July Sneak Preview!

The end of June is here, and it’s time for the Galactic Journey preview listings for July.  This way, all of you who have joined the Journey, can share my adventures:

For reading material this month, we have the usual line-up of magazines in the order in which I’ll read them:

July 1960 Astounding

July 1960 Galaxy

July 1960 Fantasy and Science Fiction

I’ve decided not to order a subscription to Amazing after last month’s rather dismal example.

As for books, it looks like the only new one that’s coming out is Brian Aldiss’ Galaxies Like Grains of Sand

On the other hand, it looks like July will be a great month for movies.  This is good since The Twilight Zone‘s last episode for this season airs in four days.

Lined up, we’ve got:

The Lost World

Beyond the Time Barrier


Stay tuned for a stellar Space Race roundup in two days.  You won’t want to miss it.

In the meantime, tune in to KGJ–now broadcasting through the end of January 1959 over your local radio and television stations (February 1959 coming soon!)

  1. I still think you might be missing out on Amazing. A little bird at Ziff-Davis tells me this month’s ish has stories by Bob Sheckley, Algis Budrys, Horace Fyfe, A. Bertram Chandler, and a couple of others.

    I’m also guessing you listed those movies in descending order of expected quality. I have some hopes for the Lost World. Good source material and a good cast, but I’m not too sure about Irwin Allen. From what I’ve seen of his stuff so far, let’s just say he’s no Roger Corman. Well, hope springs eternal.

    1. The order of movies was serendipitous, though one can never rule out unconscious bias.

      Ya know, I was sold on Amazing by the author list last time, too.  I can always pick up Sheckley in his next collection.

      (but if I run out of things to talk about, I may pick up the ish… maybe. )

      Thanks for commenting!
