1. We all knew that summer was a done deal, but the week before my friends and I returned to school to begin the fourth grade, a genius at the local television station ran a week-long sci-fi marathon for the afternoon movie. All saucers, all the time. Those primitive special effects and cheap rear-screen tricks rendered a surreal atmosphere that actually made these pictures more disturbing to my young eyes. I both feared and hoped for a local alien invasion—some spectacle I could watch from the safety of my room, like Jimmy Hunt in Invaders from Mars.
