"Flying Saucers for Everybody!"

This is from a neat site: Karl Schroeder's Science Fiction.
"Flying Saucers for Everybody (Mechanix Illustrated, March, 1957) was written by a Mr. Frank Tinsley, who as it turns out was a frequent and enthusiastic contributor of SF to magazines such as Amazing Stories. I believe he was also an illustrator who did some work on the Tom Swift books.

The rest of the article is a nice piece on memories of reading about flying saucers, inventions and the future in magazines like Popular Mechanics.
