"Forbidden Area"

Post by admin »

Just finished Pat Frank's 1956 "Forbidden Area". Woah, scary. Way ahead of its time! I thought it was better in many ways than "Red Alert" by Peter Bryant - which spawned the movies Fail Safe and Dr. Strangelove

Quibbles: my copy from Google Books (in the Play Store) was badly scanned - technical terms like "B-47" and "B-52" were spelled out in full. The OCR knew what "Chevy Chase" (Maryland) was but "Chevy" the 1956 Chevrolet car came out repeatedly as "Chewy". Sloppy work and not fair to the author IMO.
