Space, Time, Machine, Monster by Mark Brake
Of the fifty biggest-selling movies of all time, most are sci-fi films. Ten million viewers tune in each week to watch Doctor Who. And in the ever-expanding world of computer games, sci-fi titles rule.
Yet our futuristic world was imagined long ago; dreamt up in the minds of movie directors and classic sci-fi stories. Mark Brake’s Space, Time, Machine, Monster
tells you how sci-fi helped build the world in which we live.
Mark's other children’s books include Space Hoppers, Really, Really Big Questions about Space and Time, and The Alien Hunter’s Handbook. It will appeal to fans of Tony Robinson, Terry Deary and Mick Arnold.
