Alien Worlds, Fantasy Worlds

Recommended Posts

Here’s another scifi theme/image I liked …

Inspired by Jame Blish’s “Cities In Flight”.

Here are other images related to that great series ...

They are "worlds" ... sort of ... but I suppose not "alien" since those are supposed to be earth cities.

 

The second to last one is the best, since it shows the "Dillon-Wagoner Graviton Polarity Generator" (aka spindizzy drive) in operation.  B)

I agree, it is the best, but the one I noted is more in line with the storyline.

 

This image is interesting since it shows a portion of New York City "in flight" ...

Great series.  Read 'em all, years back.  Great pics.  Hadn't seen them up until now. 

 

Niven once autographed my copy of Ringworld at Forbidden Planet, scifi bookstore, at that time on 12th St and Broadway, NYC.
