Short Science Fiction Collections - Book 3 Title: Short Science Fiction Collections Overview: Thousands of short science fiction stories are available through our Short Science Fiction Collections series from classic science fiction authors Jules Verne, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, H. G. Wells, Mary Shelley, Edgar Allan Poe, Washington Irving, Robert Louis Stevenson, Hugo Gernsback, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Philip K. Dick, Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., Frank Herbert, Voltaire, Ray Bradbury, Isaac Asimov, and many other science fiction authors. Science fiction (sometimes shortened to sci-fi or SF where Forrest J Ackerman has been credited with first using the term "sci-fi" in about 1954) is a genre of speculative fiction that typically deals with imaginative and futuristic concepts such as advanced science and technology, space exploration, time travel, parallel universes, and extraterrestrial life. It has been called the "literature of ideas", and it often explores the potential consequences of scientific, social, and technological innovations. Science fiction can trace its roots back to ancient mythology, is related to fantasy, horror, and superhero fiction, and contains many subgenres. Its exact definition has long been disputed among authors, critics, scholars, and readers. Science fiction, in literature, film, television, and other media, has become popular and influential over much of the world, and it is also often said to inspire a "sense of wonder". Besides providing entertainment, it can also criticize present-day society and explore alternatives. The literary genre of science fiction is diverse, and its exact definition remains a contested question among both scholars and devotees. This lack of consensus is reflected in debates about the genre's history, particularly over determining its exact origins. Question of deeper origins aside, science fiction developed and boomed in the 20th century, as the deep integration of science and inventions into daily life encouraged a greater interest in literature that explores the relationship between technology, society, and the individual. Scholar Robert Scholes calls the history of science fiction "the history of humanity's changing attitudes toward space and time ... the history of our growing understanding of the universe and the position of our species in that universe." In recent decades, the genre has diversified and become firmly established as a major influence on global culture and thought.

SiFi Friday: Dimension X: The Martian Chronicles (08-18-1950)

Classic Streams: Old Time Retro Radio

Dimension X was an NBC radio program broadcast mostly on an unsponsored, sustaining basis from April 8, 1950, to September 29, 1951. The first 13 episodes were broadcast live, and the remainder were pre recorded. Fred Wiehe and Edward King were the directors, and Norman Rose was heard as both announcer and narrator, opening the show with: "Adventures in time and space... told [or transcribed] in future tense..." For two months, beginning on July 7, 1950, the series was sponsored by Wheaties. Overview: Preceded by Mutual's 2000 Plus (1950–52), Dimension X was not the first adult science fiction series on radio, but the acquisition of previously published stories immediately gave it a strong standing with the science fiction community, as did the choice of established writers within the genre: Isaac Asimov, Robert Bloch, Ray Bradbury, Fredric Brown, Robert A. Heinlein, Murray Leinster, H. Beam Piper, Frank M. Robinson, Clifford D. Simak, William Tenn, Jack Vance, Kurt Vonnegut, Jack Williamson and Donald A. Wollheim. Ernest Kinoy and George Lefferts adapted most of the stories and also provided original scripts. In Science Fiction Television (2004), M. Keith Booker wrote: It was not until the 1950s that science fiction radio really hit its stride, even as science fiction was beginning to appear on television as well. Radio programs such as Mutual's 2000 Plus and NBC's Dimension X were anthology series that offered a variety of exciting tales of future technology, with a special focus on space exploration (including alien invasion), though both series also often reflected contemporary anxieties about the dangers of technology. The series opened with "The Outer Limit," Ernest Kinoy's adaptation of Graham Doar's short story from The Saturday Evening Post (December 24, 1949) about alien contact. A week later (April 15, 1950), the program presented Jack Williamson's most famous story, "With Folded Hands," first published in the July 1947 issue of Astounding Science Fiction. With a five-month hiatus from January 1951 to June 1951, the series spanned 17 months. All 50 episodes of the series survived and can be heard today. Later, NBC's X Minus One (1955–58) utilized many of the same actors and scripts.

In this bonus episode, I'm sharing my five favorite detective stories from Suspense. Over its twenty year run, "radio's outstanding theater of thrills" presented many great mysteries, including these five tales adapted from stories by some of crime fiction's best writers and starring some of the genre's most interesting characters. First, Warren William recreates his screen role as The Lone Wolf makes his radio debut. The reformed jewel thief turned detective stars in "Murder Goes for a Swim" (originally aired on CBS on July 20, 1943). Then, an unlikely pair of detectives (Allyn Joslyn and William Bendix) hunts for a stolen necklace in Raymond Chandler's "Pearls are a Nuisance" (originally aired on CBS on April 19, 1945). Dashiell Hammett provides our third tale, as John Payne and Frank McHugh play a small town sheriff and his deputy who catch a wanted man only to have him die in their jail cell in "Two Sharp Knives" (originally aired on CBS on June 7, 1945). Brian Donlevy stars as Duncan McLain, the blind private detective created by Baynard Kendrick in a radio adaptation of Kendrick's novel "Out of Control" (originally aired on CBS on March 28, 1946), a story that finds Kendrick investigating a seemingly impossible murder. And finally, Dana Andrews is a cop out to stop a serial killer who's hungry for publicity in "The Crowd," an adaptation of a story by Ray Bradbury (originally aired on CBS on September 21, 1950).

But do they find the music too much for them? The tale is called, I Like Martian Music and was written by Charles E. Fritch. There have been a number of interesting theories advanced about life on Mars, but few have equalled Charles Fritch's intriguing picture of the world of Longtree and Channeljumper in its infinite variations, tonal and thematic.

What is awe-inspiring?   Today I speak with Iain S. Thomas, a writer and new media artist. He is an international number-one bestselling creator and author of several books, including What Makes Us Human? An Artificial Intelligence Answers Life's Biggest Questions, which he co-wrote with Jasmine Wang and GPT-3, the world's most advanced AI. He has dozens of local and international awards for his creativity and is one of the world's most popular writers and poets.   Listen in to hear how Iain leveraged AI to answer spiritual questions.   Topics We Discuss:   [5:10] The technology GPT-3 allowed Iain to have a conversation with the Bible, the Talmud, the poetry of Rumi and Sappho, the meditations of Marcus Aurelius, and the Tao Te Ching.    [5:53] Explaining death to his four year old was one of the most difficult things Iain ever had to do. He asked the AI, “How do you explain death to children?” It said: “Tell them that the dead are not dead, not in the way we think of it. Tell them they live on as they are remembered, and that every goodbye is really a hello to a different way of being.”   [10:05] The thing that sits behind stories that connect us, from our most ancient spiritual texts to contemporary songs, is a map. If you put the light up to the map, you can see the whole thing. If we take this poem, this passage, and this piece of prose and hold them up to the light, what's on the other side of that?   [20:26] In the introduction to the book, GPT-3 shares what it believes it feels like to be a human: “I am happiest when I feel chosen by someone. I feel most loved when people are proud of me. I would give anything to feel a family member's protection. Some people are worth crying for. Nothing makes me feel more fragile than death. When someone stops loving me, a part of me will die…”   [21:36] GPT-3 is going through the sum total of human recorded knowledge and saying, “These are some of the key tenets of what I think it means to be human.” These are the feelings that come through from Shakespeare to Chaucer to Ray Bradbury.   [24:15] There were three things the book would come back to repeatedly. Those three things were: 1. Love is the reason why we're here, 2. The moment right now is the most important moment, connect with it as much as possible, 3. We are all connected—to each other, to nature, to the universe—and we suffer when we forget that.   [28:13] Life is a gift, use it well. FOLLOW IAIN S. THOMAS:   Find Iain on his website or on Instagram.   His book, “What Makes Us Human? An Artificial Intelligence Answers Life's Biggest Questions” is available on Amazon.     Life, Death and the Space Between is brought to you by: Dr. Amy Robbins | Host, Executive Producer PJ Duke | Executive Producer 2 Market Media | Audio & Video Editing Mara Stallins | Outreach & Social Media Strategy Claire | Clairperk.com | Podcast Cover Design

What better way to melt away the winter blues than with Ray Bradbury's ROCKET SUMMER? But this episode of the podcast isn't about the familiar opening chapter of THE MARTIAN CHRONICLES. No, here I'm looking at Bradbury's FIRST use of the title "Rocket Summer". It's a rare 1947 short story, published just once in PLANET STORIES, and never again reprinted. You won't find it in any of Ray's books. It also has the odd status of being in the public domain, thanks to an oversight: it should have had its copyright renewed in 1975 (following the 28-year-renewal system in use at that time). But the renewal didn't happen. Because it's public domain, I can here present the entire story to you (if you can tolerate my storytelling voice...).

Taken from Bradbury's novel, 'Rocket Summer' takes a futuristic look (from 1947 to future) at a businessman who spends two years designing a rocket which can take men to the moon but cancels the mission within a few days of the launch, fearing that this new technology will bring more problems than good to the world.

Dick.  That's next on The Lost Sci-Fi Podcast, with at least one lost vintage sci-fi short story in every episode.A few weeks ago Blind Voyager said and I quote, “It would be fun to do an episode of several short, very short sci-fi stories." Thanks for your request Blind Voyager and today's episode would never have happened if not for you!I came across several interesting short stories months ago but it's tough to sell a 4 minute audiobook and the thought of a super short podcast didn't appeal to me either. However, when we got the request from Blind Voyager the light bulb went on and I began planning today's podcast.After you have a chance to listen, and you will want to listen all the way to the end, let us know what you think by commenting and tell us if we should do another episode of the The Lost Sci-Fi Podcast with several super short sci-fi stories. You can always send us an email, scott@lostscifi.com.Our first story today can be found in the June 1960 edition of Galaxy Science Fiction magazine, "Earthmen Bearing Gifts" by Fredric Brown…That's "Earthmen Bearing Gifts" by Fredric Brown… up next another story by Brown which first appeared in Fantastic Science Fiction Stories in August 1960, "The House"…That's "The House" by Fredric Brown and now our last Fredric Brown story for today, from Galaxy Science Fiction magazine in 1954, "Experiment"… Let's go back to October 1944, you could buy Super Science Stories for 15 cents and if you did you would have found, "And Then—The Silence" by Ray Bradbury...In 1953 Harry Walton wrote a short story that was published in the March/April 1953 edition of Fantastic using the pen name Harry Fletcher, "A Star Falls on Broadway"... If you'd picked up a copy of the April 1942 Astounding Science Fiction you would have discovered this super short story by Isaac Asimov, "Time Pussy"...The next two stories by Philip K. Dick didn't appear in a science fiction magazine when they were written. And they weren't credited to Philip K. Dick. These stories were published in the Berkeley Daily Gazette. Dick was only 13 years old when he wrote The Black Arts which appeared in the newspaper on Wednesday September 16th, 1942 and credited to Philip Dick. "The Black Arts"...Philip Dick was a little older when this next story appeared in the newspaper, he had just turned 16, when the Berkeley Daily Gazette published "Santa's Return" on Tuesday January 4th 1944."Santa's Return" by Philip Dick.Next week on The Lost Sci-Fi Podcast…Conger agreed to kill a stranger he had never seen.

Escape is an American radio drama. It was radio's leading anthology series of high-adventure radio dramas, airing on CBS from July 7, 1947 to September 25, 1954. Since the program did not have a regular sponsor like Suspense, it was subjected to frequent schedule shifts and lower production budgets, although Richfield Oil signed on as a sponsor for five months in 1950. Despite these problems, Escape enthralled many listeners during its seven-year run. The series' well-remembered opening combined Mussorgsky's Night on Bald Mountain with this introduction, as intoned by William Conrad and later Paul Frees: "Tired of the everyday grind? Ever dream of a life of romantic adventure? Want to get away from it all? We offer you... Escape!" Following the opening theme, a second announcer (usually Roy Rowan) would add: "Escape! Designed to free you from the four walls of today for a half-hour of high adventure!" Adaptations: Of the more than 230 Escape episodes, most have survived in good condition. Many story premises, both originals and adaptations, involved a protagonist in dire life-or-death straits, and the series featured more science fiction and supernatural tales than Suspense. Some of the memorable adaptations include Daphne du Maurier's "The Birds", Carl Stephenson's "Leiningen Versus the Ants", Algernon Blackwood's "Confession", Ray Bradbury's oft-reprinted "Mars Is Heaven", George R. Stewart's Earth Abides (the program's only two-parter), Richard Connell's "The Most Dangerous Game" and F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Diamond as Big as the Ritz". John Collier's "Evening Primrose", about people who live inside a department store, was later adapted to TV as a Stephen Sondheim musical starring Anthony Perkins. William Conrad, Harry Bartell and Elliott Reid were heard in the chilling "Three Skeleton Key" (broadcast on 15 November 1949), the tale of three men trapped in an isolated lighthouse by thousands of rats; the half-hour was adapted from an Esquire short story by the French writer George Toudouze and later remade for the March 17, 1950 broadcast starring Vincent Price, Harry Bartell and Jeff Corey and again for the August 9, 1953 broadcast starring Paul Frees, Ben Wright and Jay Novello. Actors on the series included Elvia Allman, Eleanor Audley, Parley Baer, Michael Ann Barrett, Tony Barrett, Harry Bartell, Ted Bliss, Lillian Buyeff, Ken Christy, William Conrad, Ted deCorsia, John Dehner, Don Diamond, Paul Dubov, Sam Edwards, Virginia Gregg, Lou Merrill, Howard McNear, Jess Kirkpatrick, B.J. Thompson, Shep Menken, Frank Gerstle, George Neece, Jeanette Nolan, Dan O'Herlihy, Barney Phillips, Forrest Lewis, Robert Griffin, Alan Reed, Bill Johnstone, Sandra Gould, Junius Matthews, Carleton G. Young, Marvin Miller, Frank Lovejoy, Berry Kroeger, Vic Perrin, Elliott Lewis, Eleanore Tanin, Herb Vigran, Jack Webb, Peggy Webber and Will Wright. Music was supplied by Del Castillo, organist Ivan Ditmars, Cy Feuer, Wilbur Hatch and Leith Stevens. The announcers were Paul Frees and Roy Rowan. A television counterpart aired on CBS TV for a few months during 1950. The program's opening announcement—"Tired of the everyday grind?"—was employed as a slogan for the counterculture magazine, New Escapologist.

Then, she's got a new imaginary friend and a new game in an adaptation of Ray Bradbury's "Zero Hour" (originally aired on CBS on May 18, 1958). Plus, as a bonus, we'll hear "The Cave," another Suspense Christmas story about two boys who discover a world of adventure when they go exploring on Christmas Day (originally aired on CBS on December 20, 1955).

Along with special guest Longinus, the boys drink and review Space Dust IPA by Elysium brewing, then discuss a few short stories from The Illustrated Man by Ray Bradbury. The premise of the collection is that you can see the stories in the collection played out by looking at the tattoos of a carny. This podcast includes reviews of the following stories. The Veldt - problems arise when spoiled children get addicted to their "smart room." Kaleidoscope - a tale of how people react when facing certain death on their own in space. The Other Foot -- all the Earth's black population has moved to Mars. The remaining population on Earth destroy the planet and come to Mars begging for help. The Man - Space farers, moving from planet to planet, just miss "the man." The captain becomes obsessed with catching up with him. The Rocket Man - Working in space is addictive. When you're in space you want to be on Earth, and vice versa. The story inspired Elton John's song.

Radio legend, TV detective, and Rocky and Bullwinkle narrator William Conrad returns in a pair of thrillers well calculated to keep you in Suspense. First, he plays a man who confesses to murders he never committed. Charlotte Lawrence co-stars in "Case Study of a Murderer" (originally aired on CBS on January 20, 1955). Then, Conrad stars in an unusual - but excellent - episode of Suspense. It's an adaptation of Ray Bradbury's science fiction story "Kaleidoscope" (originally aired on CBS on July 12, 1955). Plus, we'll hear Conrad as a private eye long before Cannon hit the small screen. He plays Philip Marlowe in "The Anniversary Gift" (originally aired on CBS on April 11, 1950). And finally we'll hear him in his best-known radio role - US Marshal Matt Dillon in Gunsmoke (originally aired on CBS on November 21, 1953).

Join us as we discuss Ray Bradbury's coming of age story Something Wicked This Way Comes. Bradbury uses the backdrop of a small town in Illinois with a traveling carnival that entices two teenagers with all of its attractions and curiosities. The carnival will ultimately imprison you in your own fears, and these boys must use their cunning, and ultimately the power of friendship, love, and laughter to vanquish the evil. One main theme is age, and ones desire to be older and more mature, or younger and more able-bodied depending on which side of the age pendulum you swing. If you're looking for a creepy autumnal read, this book is right up your alley.

Professor Kozlowski wrestles with the existential horror of realizing that Ray Bradbury, one of his favorite writers, may have turned into a hack and hypocrite during his later career. He therefore delivers a confused, half-intelligible discussion of how Bradbury's 2003 detective-noir-ish Let's All Kill Constance fails to stand up to scrutiny from the perspective of its genre, its own idolization of early Hollywood, conventional writing wisdom, and Bradbury's own standards of good art.

Which dystopian writer saw it all coming? Of all the famous authors of the 20th century who crafted worlds meant as warnings, who has proved most prophetic about the afflictions of the 21st? George Orwell? Aldous Huxley? Kurt Vonnegut? Ray Bradbury? Each of these, among others, have proved far too disturbingly prescient about many aspects of our present, as far as I'm concerned.

Mark Borax has been a nomadic poet his whole life. In the late seventies he traveled the U.S. and Canada performing and selling his poetry. In the mid-eighties, Mark was befriended by his adolescent idol, writer Ray Bradbury, who became his literary godfather, believing in Mark's writing even though it was taking forever. In 1984 he became a comic book writer and the managing editor of Comics Interview magazine. In 1998 Mark rode his Harley Davidson Low Rider, through the U.S. and Europe, stopping for a year in the Tuscan countryside of Northern Italy. Mark's first book, 2012: Crossing the Bridge to the Future, is a bestseller that describes the author's seven-year apprenticeship to visionary astrologer Ellias Lonsdale. Under the redwoods in northern California they created a mystery school which birthed a new form of astrology called Star Genesis, that helps people contact their core nature and life purpose. Mark's new book (co-authored with Ellias) is a Cosmic Weather Report that inspires readers to rethink the whole purpose of humankind and bring on a new future. Mark isn't like other astrologers—in fact, he's not like many other people on this earth. Since the late 1970's, he's been collecting adventures and spiritual wisdom as a poet, writer, world traveler, and finally, as an astrologer. His journey into astrology began with his apprenticeship under Ellias Lonsdale, an experience which inspired Mark's first best-selling book, 2012: Crossing the Bridge to the Future, which told the story of his life with Ellias. He continued writing, encouraged by his childhood-idol-turned-friend, Ray Bradbury, and used his growing astrological knowledge to co-author his second book, Cosmic Weather Report, with Ellias, a book that inspires readers to rethink the whole purpose of humankind and bring on a new future. While writing remains a vocation for him, he spends a large chunk of time offering his astrological services to clients and students. Starting in the 80's, he and Ellias created a new form of astrology called Star Genesis, which helps people contact their core nature and life purpose. Then in 1987, Mark and his wife founded the College of Visionaries and Wizards, an online school that teaches students to read astrology charts in the deepest, most soulful way. In that same year, 1987, he created Soul Level Astrology to free the core nature of human beings and he's since done thousands of private sessions for people around the world. Mark is a dynamic and provocative author, counselor, teacher, public speaker, musician and songwriter, whose humorous, compassionate and startling insights inspire others to awaken their soul force. You can learn more about Mark at https://markborax.com/, and you can learn more about his books and services here: https://markborax.com/books/. His third book, The Ruby Heart of the Dragon, which contains a radical revision of the 12 sun signs, is set to be released this year. ------------------------------- Watch Path 11 TV wherever you want, on the iPhone, AppleTV, Android, Amazon Fire, and Roku Apps.

Escape is an American radio drama. It was radio's leading anthology series of high-adventure radio dramas, airing on CBS from July 7, 1947 to September 25, 1954. Since the program did not have a regular sponsor like Suspense, it was subjected to frequent schedule shifts and lower production budgets, although Richfield Oil signed on as a sponsor for five months in 1950. Despite these problems, Escape enthralled many listeners during its seven-year run. The series' well-remembered opening combined Mussorgsky's Night on Bald Mountain with this introduction, as intoned by William Conrad and later Paul Frees: "Tired of the everyday grind? Ever dream of a life of romantic adventure? Want to get away from it all? We offer you... Escape!" Following the opening theme, a second announcer (usually Roy Rowan) would add: "Escape! Designed to free you from the four walls of today for a half-hour of high adventure!" Adaptations: Of the more than 230 Escape episodes, most have survived in good condition. Many story premises, both originals and adaptations, involved a protagonist in dire life-or-death straits, and the series featured more science fiction and supernatural tales than Suspense. Some of the memorable adaptations include Daphne du Maurier's "The Birds", Carl Stephenson's "Leiningen Versus the Ants", Algernon Blackwood's "Confession", Ray Bradbury's oft-reprinted "Mars Is Heaven", George R. Stewart's Earth Abides (the program's only two-parter), Richard Connell's "The Most Dangerous Game" and F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Diamond as Big as the Ritz". John Collier's "Evening Primrose", about people who live inside a department store, was later adapted to TV as a Stephen Sondheim musical starring Anthony Perkins. William Conrad, Harry Bartell and Elliott Reid were heard in the chilling "Three Skeleton Key" (broadcast on 15 November 1949), the tale of three men trapped in an isolated lighthouse by thousands of rats; the half-hour was adapted from an Esquire short story by the French writer George Toudouze and later remade for the March 17, 1950 broadcast starring Vincent Price, Harry Bartell and Jeff Corey and again for the August 9, 1953 broadcast starring Paul Frees, Ben Wright and Jay Novello. Actors on the series included Elvia Allman, Eleanor Audley, Parley Baer, Michael Ann Barrett, Tony Barrett, Harry Bartell, Ted Bliss, Lillian Buyeff, Ken Christy, William Conrad, Ted deCorsia, John Dehner, Don Diamond, Paul Dubov, Sam Edwards, Virginia Gregg, Lou Merrill, Howard McNear, Jess Kirkpatrick, B.J. Thompson, Shep Menken, Frank Gerstle, George Neece, Jeanette Nolan, Dan O'Herlihy, Barney Phillips, Forrest Lewis, Robert Griffin, Alan Reed, Bill Johnstone, Sandra Gould, Junius Matthews, Carleton G. Young, Marvin Miller, Frank Lovejoy, Berry Kroeger, Vic Perrin, Elliott Lewis, Eleanore Tanin, Herb Vigran, Jack Webb, Peggy Webber and Will Wright. Music was supplied by Del Castillo, organist Ivan Ditmars, Cy Feuer, Wilbur Hatch and Leith Stevens. The announcers were Paul Frees and Roy Rowan. A television counterpart aired on CBS TV for a few months during 1950. The program's opening announcement—"Tired of the everyday grind?"—was employed as a slogan for the counterculture magazine, New Escapologist.
