    1. review of Paul Tabori's The Green Rain by tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE - October 27, 2017 When I was a kid, one of my favorite movies was The Boy with Green Hair (1948), ironically, I wd've witnessed it on a black & white TV.

    3. I thought this was one of the worst SF novels I had ever read. The cover sounded very intriguing. Deadly green rain from the sky! That sounds like a world-wide panic filled dilemma.
