ROOM 101 Field Guide to Science Fiction Full Text and Link List

The Field Guide

A reference guide for Room 101.
Since beginning the Room 101 series, I have been asked about resources. Where to find science fiction books, movies, etc. online. As noted in the descriptions of each episode, I typically provide a few links to the books and/or movies referenced.
Before going any further, let’s take a look at some online sci-fi resources. This is by no means a comprehensive list but it will provide the user with a few years of material at the very least. If you have additional links to add, please list them in the comments section. Your input is greatly appreciated.

Books – print and digital

Print editions. I Recommend SF MASTERWORKS in paperback on Ebay. It’s a rather diverse selection of science fiction ranging from classic works like HG Wells’ War of the Worlds to more modern novels such as Dan Simmons’ HYPERION and the prices on Ebay are reasonable.

Shop local – check out your local new and used book dealers including Goodwill book stores if

one is available where you live. Books are bloody expensive, and if you can shave a few bucks off the retail price, buying used is the way to go.

And don’t forget your local library. With your library card you can also watch free movies on More on this later.

It is well worth it. They carry classics like The Manchurian Candidate and newer titles like Ex Machina and everything in between. Just sync your library card with Kanopy and your in.

Movieland TV

If you have Roku you should have Movieland TV. What they lack in quantity they make up in quality. Fantastic science fiction films like Then Andromeda Strain, Westworld, Phase IV, Colossus the Forbin Project, Planet of the Apes. Highly recommended.

GIANT ANIMALS Attack! HG Wells’ FOOD OF THE GODS Meets B-Movie Mogul Bert I Gordon

When GIANT ANIMALS Attack! HG Wells’ FOOD OF THE GODS Meets B-Movie Mogul Bert I. Gordon.
Early science fiction master H.G. Wells wrote THE FOOD OF THE GODS in 1904 and B-Movie Mogul Bert I. Gordon adapted the story twice, once in 1966 with VILLAGE OF THE GIANTS, and again in 1976 with THE FOOD OF THE GODS. Not satisfied with just two adaptations, Gordon adapted Wells’ EMPIRE OF THE ANTS in 1977.
If you’re into huge cocks, rats, and ants, this episode of Room 101 is for you.
