What Wred's Reading: Superman: The High-Flying History Of America's Most Enduring Hero
I just started reading this book by Larry Tye. My buddy Brent sent it to me since he knows I dig comics and super-heroes. It looks to be a good read, and Tye seems to be fairly on target with his research. He's even careful about it. For example, on page 5, writing of Superman's co-creator Jerry Siegel, Tye writes that Siegel's writing appeared in "his own Cosmic Stories, America's first science fiction magazine produced by and for fans."
That may be true. I am glad that Tye doesn't claim that Cosmic Stories is the first fanzine because it probably wasn't. But "first science fiction magazine produced by and for fans" . . . hmm, maybe. The distinction between that and the first fanzine is thin but notable, so ok.
Are you insane with your marketing budget? Do you have spare change under the couch cushions? Perhaps then you would like to advertise on WredFright.Com. Email Wred at wredfright ATATAT yahoo DOTT com.
Google plops ads on here with my permission in the futile hope that I will make money (so far, um, no). I find the ads amusing because they try to tie in with the content of the posts. However, if Google has a crush on you, then the ads may deal with things you're interested in instead. Please set your browser accordingly if you object to that (eat those cookies). Google also provides traffic statistics to me so I can see if anyone's reading this silly thing (yes, people are), but otherwise I don't give a hoot who you are. Enjoy the blog and love Big Brother! I also don't receive money or other compensation for Yips, though I have nothing against money or other compensation (that's why I run advertising and sometimes use Amazon referrals for links); if I'm selling something (say, my books), then it will be pretty obvious I'm selling it . . . say, have you thought about buying a signed copy of The Pornographic Flabbergasted Emus lately?
