About this title

Synopsis:

Space Cadets - edited by Mike Resnick - 24 stories illiciting memories of the Golden Age of Science Fiction. The late Frankie Thomas, who died just as this book was going to press, thrilled a generation of future fans and writers as Tom Corbett, Space Cadet, in the early days of television. L.A. Con IV, the 2006 World Science Fiction Convention, selected Frankie as its Special Guest, and this book of stories about space cadets, each and every one of them inspired by Frankie's acts of derring-do on the small black-and-white screens of the very early 1950s, is the convention's - and Fandom's - tribute to him. In these pages you'll find stories by L.A. Con IV's Writer Guest of Honor Connie Willis, plus Mercedes Lackey, Harry Turtledove, Kevin J. Anderson, David Brin, Larry Niven, Mike Resnick, Gregory Benford & Elizabeth Malartre, Kristine Kathryn Rusch & Dean Wesley Smith, Josepha Sherman, Todias Buckell, Craig Miller, Ralph Roberts, Kay Kenyon, Catherine Asaro, Stephen Leigh, Nick DiChario, Michael Burstein, Barry Malzberg, Brad Sinor, John DeChancie, and the book concludes with a novella by David Gerrold. Before he died, Frankie wrote down some of his experiences as a young actor portraying Tom Corbett, and they are included here as well. The cover art is by L.A. Con IV's Artist Guest of Honor James Gurney.
