Recent Comments "Space Cadets"

This is a somewhat uneven collection of stories by two-dozen science fiction authors on the topic of space cadets. The best of the bunch is by Connie Willis; it's a story worthy of Heinlein. There are also good pieces by Tobias Buckell, Kay Kenyon, and a few others. There's an interesting introduction included written by Frankie Thomas, the actor who portrayed Space Cadet Tom Corbett on television in the 1950s.

LACon IV, the 2006 World Science Fiction Convention, had a "Space Cadets" theme, and this anthology was produced by LACon IV -- or at least their parent organization, the Southern California Institute for Fannish Interests, Inc. (aka SCIFI, Inc pronounced "skiffy").The book starts with a reminiscence by Frankie Thomas, who starred as Tom Corbett, Space Cadet in the 1950s, and who was one of LACon IV's Guests Of Honor. Sadly, Mr. Thomas died before the convention; as this book was going to press. [...]

Still picking through this one reading a new story every now and then. The ones I've read have been pretty good and the table of contents is a pretty impressive list of good writers.
