From Jules Verne to Star Trek

FROM JULES VERNE TO STAR TREK by Jeff Rovin

Published by Drake Publishers, 1977 * Softcover * 147 pages
This was one of my earliest reference book purchases (after Horrors From Screen to Scream). The author lists, alphabetically, close to 100 Sci-Fi films which he feels are among the best, from Aelita (1924) to 1976 (Logan's Run and the sequel to Westworld, Futureworld). He devotes about a page to each, with about half accompanied by a large b&w still.

On the last few pages, he switches to Sci-Fi TV, notably Star Trek, the Outer Limits, the Prisoner and Space:1999. This last section is pretty short, a brief overview. Now, I could be wrong about this, but in checking for
this on Amazon.com, it looked to me that one could get a copy of this book for about a buck (plus shipping, I guess). Overall, a good read, and Rovin wrote later books of this nature.
