Digital Digits Four. More Astronauts

If you’re a regular visitor to my humble blog then you’ll be well aware by now that this ongoing mini-series is dedicated to books published by the Digit imprint which in turn was owned by Brown Watson Ltd. If this is your first visit to unsubscribedblog then you’ve missed the first three parts which can be accessed here, here and here.

Last week I posted a selection of six books which all had astronauts of some kind on their covers and so I’ve decided to continue in this vein for a second helping of those plucky men (and the odd woman) who fly into space to protect this fragile planet from an ineffable doom!

If you have any thoughts on anything you’ve seen so far then please do leave me a comment, I’m always happy to receive a little feedback.

    “The Amazing Mr. Lutterworth” – I do like that title! I may have to steal it.

    Delight heaped upon delight!! The Amazing Mr Lutterworth was, I’m fairly sure, the first Digit I ever bought. Favourite this time is The Genetic General, top half in a space suit, bottom half in trousers and boots, and is that an ejector seat he’s sitting in?!

    Take care, Bernie xx

      Glad to serve up some tasty treats for you once again Bernie, especially your first Digit. ‘The Genetic General’ is an odd cover isn’t it? I love the look of surprise on his face and the promise of ‘stupendous’ science fiction above the title – fantastic! Take care as ever Bernie xxx
