Scansion No. 33 – Thursday, 20th October, 1955


  • R. D. Nicholson


After some months hibernation, SCANSION is back once more, a minor sign of the general resurgence of interest afoot amongst Sydney's science fiction fans. The double issue of a fortnight ago was the first since August.

To lead off this number, a couple of reviews: I have chosen two novels for comment because they exemplify opposite poles of science fiction writing. Firstly, ENTERPRISE 2115, by Charles Grey (Merit Books, London, 2/- Sterling). I gather that the publishers of this vigorous science fiction story told in the grand manner have distributed review copies far and wide.
