CHARACTERS The Man from Mars REVIEW ☆ The Man from Mars CHARACTERS ✓ LABMEDNEWS.XYZ ✓ Fred Nadis Cholar Fred Nadis paints a vivid portrait of Palmer a brilliant charming and wildly willful iconoclast who helped ignite the UFO craze convinced Americans of hidden worlds and government cover ups and championed the occult and paranormal Palmer overcame serious physical handicaps to become the most significant editor during the “golden age” of pulp magazines; he rebelled in his own inimitable way against the bland suburban vision of the American Dream; he concocted new literary genres; and he molded our current conspiracy culture decades before The X Files claimed that the truth was out there. I guess it s not too strange that while I tend to dislike biographies the ones I m most drawn to are ones about outsiders about those on the fringes andor those who aren t afraid to upend the standard conventions of the time I can t remember when I first heard of Ray Palmer science fiction publishing forefather or of The Man From Mars which tells his tale but it s a solid workmanlike reading about a man who deserves acclaim than he gotThe book is very straightforward taking us from Ray Palmer s childhood throughout his professional activity from publishing weird tales and pulpy science fiction to his social polemics The story does a decent job covering them and is not afraid to present many of the personalities as they were in terms of the paranoid types that Palmer appealed to and drew inIf I have one complaint it s that it almost feels as if Nadis has taken the real world conspiratorial beliefs toward the end of Palmer s life he was especially fond of many right conspiracy theories as he got on in years and applied that same sort of paranoia to his earlier life Palmer at his core seemed to be a Babbian showman in a sense and was willing and able to go along with any claim or belief in order to get stories and sell periodicals Without being able to significantly examine the cited works it almost feels as if Nadis at times actually came to believe a lot of what he was publishing in these fictional magazines If Palmer truly did the book doesn t do a great job showing that shift in belief If Palmer didn t as I suspect Nadis has done Palmer s legacy at least one disservice in not making that expressly clearRegardless of my complaints this is a really solid worthwhile history of a man deserving of a lot of attention A mandatory read for people interested in the history of science fiction of sci fi publication or of the odd forgotten types of popular culture history Романът на Яворов първа част literary genres; and he molded our current conspiracy culture decades before The X Files claimed that the truth was out there.
