Mike Hinge 80th Anniversary: Andrew Porter

Andrew Porter first met Mike Hinge in the early 1960s, when he moved to NYC from Los Angeles, where he'd been a student at the Art Center School [now College] of Design. Andrew Porter was the editor and publisher of ALGOL, The Magazine About Science Fiction.

For the 80th Anniversary blog posts, Andrew has contributed a photograph of Mike, some covers from Algol and Starship and a rare prelim for the cover of Mediascene of Richard Dreyfuss in the film "Close Encounters of the Third Kind".

Andrew recalls that this cover was designed so that there were over-runs done without the logo which when folded made great Christmas cards.
