What if time travel were possible?  Would you "take the leap"?  What if you had no choice as a new kind of worldwide "draft" was instituted.  Those who are chosen, and are physically able to, are sent thirty years in the future to help fight off aliens who have decimated the human race. If these pseudo-soldiers ca... Read More

It is rather amazing that British author Roald Dahl (James and the Giant Peach) wrote children's novels for a living because his works were usually dark and often rather morbid.  Adults were generally the villains in his stories and the undertones in his writing lent themselves to a lack of sentimentality.  In 1964 Dahl wrote a childr...

While the concept and development of the television set had been around since the early 1900s, it was considered a luxury item that didn't become a staple in homes everywhere until sometime in the late 1950's – early 1960's.   As a way to compete with the convenience of watching shows at home, Paramount Pictures engineers created VistaVi...
