PONS ENVY
Yes, sweetie, it’s bigger than yours. But I told you size doesn’t matter to me.

Curt Siodmak’s sci-fi classic Donovan’s Brain, first published in 1942, is a story of scientific experimentation gone terribly wrong: body dies, brain lives, scientist communicates with brain, brain takes control of scientist and makes him do horrible things. You already know this tale because it’s been recycled everywhere from Star Trek to The Man with Two Brains, but the German-born Siodmak’s first swipe at the theme is still tops. Highly recommended. The paperback version you see above appeared from Bantam in 1950 with uncredited, but very effective cover art.

BACK TO THE FUTURE
Weren’t we all supposed to have flying cars by now?

Science fiction always gets the future wrong. Or at least, it always gets the dates wrong. 2001: A Space Odyssey—sorry, haven’t seen a spinning bicycle wheel space station yet. Space 1999—we’re ten years past due on that sprawling moon base. And don’t even get us started on George Orwell’s 1984—we’re so far away from being a constantly monitored culture of brainwashed warmongers it’s positively laughable… Um, anyway, the original Star Trek series was set in like the twenty-third century or something, so its predictions still have a shot at coming true. Above and below are assorted matte paintings showing what that future will look like. Beam us up.
