Episode #226: Reading the Novelization of the 1986 Film, Spacecamp, Part 1

https://archive.org/download/podcast226_201912/Podcast%20226.mp3

This week, I’m taking a break from song writing to read from a book I haven’t looked at in years – one of the two novelizations I own of the movie Spacecamp, one of my favorite movies as a kid.  This one is aimed at slightly older readers and is written by Joe Claro – every now and then, you can find one used on eBay or Amazon.  I’m curious to see how the novelization fares after a few decades.  The last time I rewatched the film, I still remember quite liking it (posted my reflections here back on episode 154).  It’s interesting, nonetheless, to think how the film might have done had it come out a few years earlier (or maybe a few years later), since regardless of the ’86 Challenger explosion, it inspired a whole generation of kids who saw it and became interested in science, aviation, and/or space exploration.  To be con’t next week!
