SciFiMonth – Friday Face Off: 60s SciFi

Friday Face Off is a weekly meme created by Books by Proxy, and run by Lynn’s Book Blog. You can check out all my past Friday Face Offs here.

November is SciFiMonth! Lets celebrate with 30 days of sharing our enthusiasm for all things science fictional hosted by There’s Always Room For One More and Dear Geek Place


“When a day that you happen to know is Wednesday starts off by sounding like Sunday, there is something seriously wrong somewhere.

This weeks theme:  A cover that is 60s sci fi.

My Choice: 1984

Urg I hate era cover themes! But only because I have no idea what a “60s” cover is? Sooooo I chose a SciFi book that was published before 1960 and this is all the covers published during the 60s.


H.M. Shah Enterprises 1960 | Signet 1961 (1) | Signet 1961 (2) | Penguin 1961

Harcourt, Brace, & World 1961 | Signet 1961 (3) | Lanterne 1962 | Aldus 1963

Heinemann 1965 | Secker & Warburg  1966 | Ediciones Destino 1966 | Arnoldo Mondadori 1967

Mladinska 1967 | Penguin Books 1968 | Planeta 1969

Least Favorites:




Idk why I like this one, I just like the bold red with the black numbers.  Its very striking.

Which is your favorite? Do you agree with my choice? Let me know in the comments!!
