Geils Band and receive heavy airplay in the early days of MTV (they were after all, the real first band playing on the network … true story), Known for their zany, madcap style of full frontal rock n’ roll, The Fools have outlasted most of their peers to attain legendary status and continue rocking on well into the twenty-first century releasing new music and playing to packed houses all over New England.Taken from the back cover

TO SPACE AND BACK
A Memoir

by Mark Goddard
iUniverse, 2008
$12.95, ISBN: 978-0-5955174-2-8
Signed by Mark



“Danger, danger Will Robinson” is a phrase Mark Goddard often heard in his role as Major Don West in the 1960’s hit television series Lost in Space. During his real life, the phrase he should have heeded was “Danger, danger Mark Goddard.” This memoir maps Goddard’s roundtrip journey from a small town boy to a TV star and back again recounting humorous anecdotes about co-stars and celebrities like Billy Mumy, Peter Fonda, Buddy Hackett, and Jim Brown. This trip gets bumpy along the way, though, with two failed marriages and a career nosedive before Goddard has the realization that changes his life. Told with humor and candor, To Space and Back gives the reader a roller coaster ride equal to any side trip the Jupiter II took on its way to Alpha Centauri. Taken from the back cover
