Moon Zero Two - Pan Paperback (1969)

That's a bit more like it.

The cover of the Pan paperback edition of the movie tie-in published in 1969 and written by John Burke.  In the days before Video and DVD this was how you relived your favorite films again and again.  Some times they left in scripted scenes that never even got filmed and sometimes they just took liberties and added whole chunks of stuff to beef-up the word count and make it that bit more book'ish.  Can't tell you which one this is because I haven't read it yet but one day I will and then we'll all know



  1. If you're particularly interested in film tie-ins (and, let's face it, people of our vintage just have to be) then The Other Steve writes about them intemittently here:
    The blog is primarily about old comics and book cover artists, so, inevitably, his gaze alights on film adaptations from time to time.

  2. They hold a special place in my heart and a special place in a box up the loft. I've just ordered this one, prompted by my own blog! Last one I orderd was Zardoz a couple of years back. It added little but was still fun to read
