Beyond Tomorrow: The Next 50 Years in Space (1965)

Who says advertising doesn't work? And 40 years later, no less.

I was flipping through the November, 1966 issue of Space World magazine when I stumbled upon this ad for the 1965 book Beyond Tomorrow: The Next 50 Years in Space by Dandridge M. Cole, with art by Roy G. Scarfo. At 168 pages, with 53 full color plates, 47 illustrations, 11 charts and an advertised list price of $7.50, I ordered it immediately.

The $7.50 price was no longer an option (I blame the economy), but it really is an amazing book of retro-futuristic fun. Stay tuned as we take a look at this book in the coming weeks.

I haven’t read this book so for me it is a brand new experience but for my fellow friends they got it very interesting. Cover page is also looking impressive. I think i should read "Beyond Tomorrow: The Next 50 Years in Space". Thanks for posting the blog!

The book "Beyond Tomorrow" is now selling for over $200 on Amazon and other venues. This truly amazes me, because I'm still living. I have copies of the book on my website for a whole lot less, if anyone's interested. I'm looking forward to any comments that your blog receives. It;s nice to know people are still enjoying what Dan and I did so many years... if the science community can ever catch up with us, we could have another whole interesting blog discussion. Dan died in 1965 and is still missed. Thanks for the "beyond Tomorrow" mention.
