The Amazing Sequel to The Spaceship Handbook.
After years of waiting, fans of the superb "Spaceship Handbook" can now finally see the long awaited sequel by Jack Hagerty and Jon Rogers. Available in full colour, hardback, this 328 page monster with over 400 color illustrations includes the same attention to detail first demonstrated in the Spaceship Handbook, but this time applied to Flying Saucers.
Few things are more iconic of the cold war era than the flying saucer. Although the archetypal "Chariots of the Gods" goes back to antiquity, the concept of a Flying Saucer as a vehicle of alien (or sometimes human) intelligence entered our culture in 1947 and has yet to leave.
This book examines the social phenomenon of flying saucers through the lens of the films and other media of the day. You won't find any chapters on Area 51, Roswell or almond-eyed Grays here. What you will find is a detailed and meticulously researched reference on some of the most popular science fiction films of all time.
