The Palace of Dreams is a novel from 1981 that is ostensibly set in the 19th century Ottoman empire, but the Albanian writer Ismail Kadare cleverly smuggles in thinly veiled criticism of the totalitarian state presided over by Enver Hoxha. The book was duly banned shortly after publication. Matthew Sweet looks at this and other examples of fiction that satirise bureaucratic overreach from Dickens to Kafka to Georgi Gospodinov, the Bulgarian novelist who won the 2023 International Booker prize for his novel Time Shelter. Sharing their thoughts on these books and on the history and role of bureaucracy within both democratic and totalitarian states are Lea Ypi, Mirela Ivanova and Roger Luckhurst.Producer: Torquil MacLeodLea Ypi is a Professor at the London School of Economics and the author of Free: Coming of Age at the End of History. You can hear her discussing the culture of Albania in a previous Free Thinking episode Professor Roger Luckhurst's books include Gothic: an illustrated history; Corridors - passages of modernity; Science Fiction: a Literary History Mirela Ivanova teaches at the University of Sheffield. You can hear her in a Free Thinking discussion of Slavic Myths
As is tradition, the Somethings are taking December off. That does not mean you aren’t getting Something Eps.. in fact, you are getting twice the amount of Something as we go through and list off our favorite episodes of the year on Mondays and Fridays. So settle in as we dive into some of the good times we had, and make sure you stick around for some surprises along the way. Happy Holidays! Original Post: We did it. We hit 10 Years. A decade of Movies. Listicles. Bad impressions. Mysteries. Special Guests. And yet somehow, in all of that, we’ve never talked directly about Science Fiction movies… like… what? How is that? It’s weird, isn’t it? Like it feels like a big miss. We looked through the episodes and – nope – no sci-fi. So we did it. Seemed like a great way to celebrate ten years. This episode is broken down a little different. Mostly because I included the Patreon stuff to let you all know that we are, for now, closing down the Patreon. We thank those that joined in on it, but to put our energies into other things, some of which you’ll hear during the show, we needed to trim somewhere. Please note – if you are Patreon Member, your payment was cancelled for July, but we wanted to make sure you got to hear the ‘full unedit’ cut of the episode. So, thank you all for being with us for these last ten years, and lets start the next 10 right. Ready? Well ok, here we go… to SPACE! Full Episode

This is Renegade Files Episode 55, Portals, Stargates, and Wormholes. Welcome Star Traveler. You have boarded the USSS Renegade Files, taking you to destinations of Paranormal Stories, High Strangeness, and In-Depth Freethinking Conspiracy Research. I'm your Captain, Lex Gordon, piloting us to broadcast level so we can hack into The Matrix. Today we depart from The Jungle Villa Outpost, Deep in the Uncharted Tropics. Science Fiction is filled with Portals that can take us to other worlds in the blink of an eye. Fantasy novels use portals as a Deus ex Machina, to conveniently solve the real problems of interstellar travel. And sci-fi TV teleports the captain to the planet below, so he can keep a date with the green girl. But could Portals, Stargates, and Wormholes really exist? Is there any evidence of such phenomena? And what do the dusty books and brightest minds have to say on the subject? Follow me beyond the event horizon and let's find out. This gets weird and that's why you and I are here. When things get weird, we get excited. It's been 221 days since our last Caffeine-Related accident, so if we watch each other's backs, we should be able to come out on the other side intact after exploring the time-curved madness of Portals, Stargates, and Wormholes.--------------------------Support RF on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/renegadefiles Get cool RF Gear: https://www.bonfire.com/store/renegade-files All things Renegade Files in one place: http://therenegadefiles.com--------------------------On Spotify or Apple Podcasts, please leave us a 5-star review if you think we deserve it, which helps the show find new listeners.

Caitlin Starling returns to Fictitious to talk about her new horror-tinged, sci-fi thriller, LAST TO LEAVE THE ROOM. We talk writing surreal scenes, and using a "load-bearing cat". About Last to Leave the Room The city of San Siroco is sinking. The basement of Dr. Tamsin Rivers, the arrogant, selfish head of the research team assigned to find the source of the subsidence, is sinking faster. As Tamsin grows obsessed with the distorting dimensions of the room at the bottom of the stairs, she finds a door that didn't exist before – and one night, it opens to reveal an exact physical copy of her. This doppelgänger is sweet and biddable where Tamsin is calculating and cruel. It appears fully, terribly human, passing every test Tamsin can devise. But the longer the double exists, the more Tamsin begins to forget pieces of her life, to lose track of time, to grow terrified of the outside world. As her employer grows increasingly suspicious, Tamsin must try to hold herself together long enough to figure out what her double wants from her, and just where the mysterious door leads… LAST TO LEAVE THE ROOM is potent and surreal, horror-inflected science fiction available now from St. Martin's Press: Amazon » Bookshop » » Some of these are affiliate links.

Having mastered probability lanes, man found an indefinite number of Earths—and everyone could have a planet all to himself, if he wanted. But there was one joker in the deal… Living Space by Isaac Asimov, that's next on The Lost Sci-Fi Podcast, with at least one lost vintage sci-fi short story in every episode. Thanks to YouTube listener Sackanutz who recently bought us $10 worth of coffee, “Hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving!” We did and thank you. There's a link in the description if you'd like to buy us a coffee. It is greatly appreciated.https://www.buymeacoffee.com/scottsVTis the season for gift giving for a lot of people around the world. Why not get something for yourself from our store. We've got t-shirts and hoodies, beer mugs, coffee mugs and more. There are four designs to choose from and there's a link in the description if you want to take a look. Merch - https://lostscifi.creator-spring.com/Here's the answer to our trivia question, Who authored the 1869 short story that introduced the first known fictional description of a space station? The answer, Edward Everett Hale who wrote “The Brick Moon.”Our story can be found in the May 1956 Science Fiction Magazine. You'll find the sci-fi goodness on page 3. Living Space by Isaac Asimov… Why did I narrate this story? Two words, Isaac Asimov. We receive a lot of requests for Asimov's stories and we do everything we can to keep our listeners happy. Although the idea of one family living on an entire planet seems farfetched it does seem like a request some people would make on an overcrowded earth if technology made it possible. This story has the feel of Philip K Dick's The Man in the High Castle in some ways and the government lying to its citizens, while it may be infuriating, isn't anything that comes as a shock.

In 1970 Avon Books published a landmark anthology “Science Fiction Hall of Fame” featuring 16 classic short stories that represent landmark tales of the genre. The stories were voted on by the members of the new (at the time in the late 60s) organization Science Fiction Writers of America. In this series, I will be joined by a panel of different guests to break down these stories and talk about the authors in the book. In this episode, I am joined by two returning guests. First up is the Hugo award-winning fan writer Cora Buhlert who knows her Science Fiction. Steve Davison is the current owner and publisher of one of the longest-running Science Fiction magazines Amazing Stories. Because this is the first episode we talk a lot about the make-up of the book and the process editor Robert Silverberg used to put the book together. The story we are covering is the 1934 classic “A Martian Odessey by Stanley G. Weinbaum. This story is considered a game-changer that changed Science Fiction forever.

When a bunch of Children of the Corn on a scientific outpost cause their parents to Jim Jones themselves, they call to the guardians of the watchtowers of the East and release "he who walks behind the rows" back into the galaxy. Star Trek continues to be relevant as ever as we question whether innocent followers who don't know any better are just as liable as the evil people pulling the strings? People who aren't taught critical thinking and scientific skepticism are very susceptible to "fake news" and "stolen elections" and "vaccine disinformation"? SAY IT AIN'T SO!

Even if it's only 30 seconds, I think this would be a huge bonus for all the listeners out there. Keep up the good work!” Thanks Conrad!

The answer in two days. Today's story was also an episode of The Twilight Zone. In season 1 episode 8, Burgess Meredith played Henry Bemis in the story written by Lynn Venable. Venable is only the second female author we have featured on The Lost Sci-Fi Podcast, and there will be many more. I had to watch the Twilight Zone episode after narrating the story and yes there are some changes from the original story but the core of the story remains intact.Venable was born in New Jersey in 1927. She married at 18 and moved to Dallas, Texas where she lived for more than 40 years. She only wrote 7 short stories and all were published from 1952 to 1957.Open your copy of the January 1953 edition of IF Worlds of Science Fiction magazine to page 95 for Time Enough At Last by Lynn Venable… Merch - https://lostscifi.creator-spring.com/ Sign up for our newsletter https://dashboard.mailerlite.com/forms/266431/102592606683269000/share https://twitter.com/lost_sci_fiHere you go Conrad, and everybody else of course, I chose to narrate this story for a number of reasons, one of which is that we are responding to many of our listeners requesting stories written by women. It happens to be a great story and even before I watched The Twilight Zone episode I could clearly see the world that she painted so perfectly. Also I happen to be a fan of and fascinated with apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic science fiction. In two days on The Lost Sci-Fi Podcast, Having mastered probability lanes, man found an indefinite number of Earths—and everyone could have a planet all to himself, if he wanted.
