In 1969, James Gunn began producing a series of films featuring prominent science fiction writers (and one prominent fan) telling the story of their genre. These films, unavailable for years, are more valuable now than ever. Now, they do more than describe history, they are history. Of the ten presenters, five have left us, and of the youngest of remaining five, Harlan Ellison, can describe himself as a certified old codger, with the scars from his by-pass surgery as irrefutable evidence.
DMZ has gone to great effort to restore these films and present them with superb image quality in a two DVD set. Including an introduction by James Gunn, explaining the beginning of the initial project, notes by Eric Solstein about the restoration, and transcripts of each individual film (such as this one of Isaac Asimov), this is the first and foremost audio-visual record of science fiction, and it is finally available!
