Description

Step aboard our cosmic vessel and embark on a thrilling journey through the annals of science fiction history. Delve into the realms of imagination with us as we traverse the vast expanses of the solar system, encountering aliens, robots, and spacefaring brigands amidst the twinkling stars. Our spacefaring odyssey takes us beyond the confines of light-years, venturing into the unknown to unveil the secrets of distant planets and the enigmatic beings that inhabit them.


Join us three times a week as we unearth timeless tales penned by the luminaries of vintage sci-fi literature. From the visionary minds of Philip K. Dick to the poetic prose of Ray Bradbury, from the boundless imagination of Isaac Asimov to the pioneering works of H. G. Wells, Arthur C. Clarke, Harlan Ellison, Fritz Leiber, Alan E. Nourse, Frederik Pohl, and countless others, we bring you short stories that have shaped the genre for generations.


Prepare to journey back in time, sixty, a hundred years, or more, to an era when these awe-inspiring narratives first graced the pages of pulp magazines and sci-fi anthologies. Yet, paradoxically, our destination often lies in the distant future, where the echoes of these literary marvels continue to resonate.


Guiding us through this celestial voyage is our narrator, Scott Miller, who serves as your companion and guide as we traverse the cosmos, exploring the wonders of yesteryear and the possibilities of tomorrow. Join us as we navigate the depths of space and time, embarking on an adventure that transcends the boundaries of imagination.

A Fantasy of perfection and imperfection. A tale of a quaint city in the jungle and the curious fate that overtook a very clever thief who came there. The Unfinished City by Donald A. Wollheim, that’s next on The Lost Sci-Fi Podcast.Another 5 star review on Apple Podcasts, just so you know, your 5 star reviews never get old! This from Slacker Jake, “Hooked. Hooked on the first episode the narration is great I can’t wait to listen to them all.” Thanks Slacker Jake. Just so you know, we are working hard to make sure you never get caught up!!And a shout out to YouTube listener scotleoqueen704 who had this to say, “Wonderful. My #1 fave sci-fi, DUNE and I'd give my right arm to have that 1st printing in the magazine. You're my #1 fave narrator of sci-fi.” Thanks scotleoqueen704! I don’t think you are alone in wishing you had the first appearance of Dune in the December 1963 issue of Analog science fiction magazine. Although it’s been said that Frank Herbert rewrote most of what originally appeared in Analog before releasing Dune in 1965. And thanks for your compliment saying that we were your #1 favorite narrator of sci-fi. That is quite a compliment. Thank you.Donald A. Wollheim makes his 4th appearance on the podcast with an interesting short sci-fi story about a most unusual little city. Stirring Science Stories first appeared in February 1941, four issues later the 15 cent magazine was gone for good. Until now, we had never featured a story from the magazine.Wollheim had an advantage over every other author who appeared in this, here today, gone tomorrow magazine, he was also the editor! Today’s story can be found in the last issue, and it is the last story ever to appear in the magazine. From March 1942, on page 60, The Unfinished City by Donald A.

Holden made love to his friends wife. Because he couldn’t help it.

The magazine was born in 1929 as Wonder Stories but the name was changed when the publication was sold.Turn to page 54, The Portable Star by Isaac Asimov…Next on The Lost Sci-Fi Podcast, A Fantasy of perfection and imperfection.

Howard, that’s next on The Lost Sci-Fi Podcast.Your 5 star reviews on Apple Podcasts are appreciated, nospammers2010 gave us 5 Stars and says, “Expert curation of the golden age.

This is a podcast to cherish.” Thanks for your excellent review nospammers2010!Today marks the debut on the podcast of a man who made his mark on the world in a short 30 years. Robert E.

Sold his first story for $16 to Weird Tales magazine when he was 19.Howard would most likely be forgotten except for diehard sci-fi fans if not for three characters he created that live on to this day. Arnold Schwarzenegger's breakthrough film was the sword and sorcery epic Conan the Barbarian in 1982. The movie was based on the character Robert E. Howard created in a series of short stories half a century earlier.Before Conan, Howard created Kull the Conqueror, which also appeared on the big screen starring Kevin Sorbo in 1997.

All the Grahams desired was a home they could call their own ... but what did the home want? Old Rambling House by Frank Herbert, that’s next on The Lost Sci-Fi Podcast.Thanks for all you do to help promote our podcast. In the last few days, thanks to you, more people have listened than ever before. We have our highest ranking ever in Canada, Great Britain, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, The Philippines and the United States. Thank you!Another 5 star review on Apple Podcasts! August100 says, “Terrific Dose of Sci Fi, I have been reading this old pulp sci fi for decades. It is a refreshing treat to hear it read by such a skilled storyteller. The more I listen, the more it grows on me. Keep it up. Please.” August100 we will keep it up and we thank you for your wonderful review. Today’s author wrote one of the best selling science fiction books of all time, Dune. Frank Herbert was born in Tacoma, Washington in 1920. His lied about his age to get the first of many newspaper jobs in 1939. Herbert loved photography, buying his first camera at the age of ten. In 1942, during World War II, he was a photographer in the U.S. Navy’s Seabees. He served for six months but suffered a head injury and was given a medical discharge.Frank Herbert said he had been reading science fiction for about ten years, before he began writing sci-fi, and said some of his favorite authors were H. G. Wells, Robert A. Heinlein, Poul Anderson and Jack Vance.His first science fiction story Looking for Something, was published in the April 1952 issue of Startling Stories. He began researching Dune in 1959 and the novel was published six years later. But, did you know the world was first exposed to the Dune World in a December 1963 issue of Analog science fiction magazine. It was featured on the cover. That 1963 issue contained Part One of Thee Parts of Dune World.Dune was then rejected by almost twenty book publishers, and in his rejection letter one editor wrote, "I might be making the mistake of the decade, but…”Sterling Lanier of the Chilton Book Company, the company most often associated with automobile repair manuals, was exposed to Dune World in Analog and offered Herbert a $7,500 advance plus future royalties for the rights to publish Dune. Obviously Dune was a success, winning the Nebula Award for best novel in 1965 and sharing the Hugo Award in 1966 with Call Me Conrad by Roger Zelazny. However, Dune, was not an immediate bestseller, and following its publication he went back to writing for newspapers. He didn’t become a full-time author until 1972.In addition to his numerous novels Herbert wrote about 30 short stories, six of them are in the public domain. Let’s turn to page 89 in the April 1958 issue of Galaxy Science Fiction Magazine, for, Old Rambling House by Frank Herbert…Next on The Lost Sci-Fi Podcast, He walked alone in the dawn and the dusk, and no one knew his name.

Men may die and planets perish, but we break not the law of the universe–Every civilization must work out its own destiny!” The Weapon by Isaac Asimov, that’s next on The Lost Sci-Fi Podcast.When we started The Lost Sci-Fi Podcast a little over two years ago we had no idea what to expect, would anybody listen?

If you would like to buy us a coffee there’s a link in the description. ☕ Buy Me a Coffee https://www.buymeacoffee.com/scottsVWe get more requests for today’s author than anybody else. He was 18 years old when he wrote this story in 1938, it wasn’t published until 1942, under a pseudonym. Perhaps because he used a pseudonym he forgot that this story was ever published and so, assuming it had been rejected and believing he no longer had a copy of it he didn't include it in a collection of his earliest stories in 1972. In that book he listed today’s story among the eleven of his short stories that has been lost forever.Seven years later in 1979 while writing the first volume of his autobiography he came across an entry in his diary that reminded him that the story had indeed been published.This story truly is “lost sci-fi”. From the pages of Super Science Stories in May 1942, let’s turn to page 115. H. B. Ogden was credited in the publication with having written this story, but we know that it was really written by a legendary sci-fi author, The Weapon by Isaac Asimov…Next on The Lost Sci-Fi Podcast, To the mighty lords of infinity he sent a burning message–“You can deny a man everything–everything but his heritage… the stars!” Outcast of the Stars by Ray Bradbury.☕ Buy Me a Coffee https://www.buymeacoffee.com/scottsV=========================== 👕 Merchandise - https://lostscifi.creator-spring.com====================================================== Connect with us! 🎧 Join Our Newsletter - Get Free Audiobooks http://lostscifi.com/free/Pinterest - https://www.pinterest.com/lostscifi/YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgyNZ7w5w7O714NHkRv5psAFacebook - https://www.facebook.com/TheLostSciFiPodcastTwitter - https://twitter.com/lost_sci_fi=========================== ❤️ ❤️ Thanks to All Our Listeners Who Bought Us a Coffee $200 Someone$75 James Van Maanenberg$50 Anonymous Listener$25 Future Space Engineer, Fressie, Kevin Eckert, Stephen Kagan, James Van Maanenberg, Irma Stolfo, Josh Jennings, Leber8tr, Conrad Chaffee, Anonymous Listener$15 Curious Jon, Buz C., Fressie, Anonymous Listener$10 Anonymous Listener$5 Chrystene, Richard Hoffman, Anonymous Listener Hosted on Acast.

The Big Wheels of tomorrow will be men who can see the big picture. But blowouts have small beginnings… The Engineer by Frederik Pohl and C. M. Kornbluth, that’s next on The Lost Sci-Fi Podcast.Your support of our podcast is amazing. We’ve received a lot of emails recently, this is one of them, “I've recently discovered your podcast and it has been a God send. I have an hour commute to work every day and these stories are the perfect entertainment to keep me alert on the drive. I sometimes listened to full-length audio books but those can get quite expensive. When you related your story of using this platform to help care for your wife after you are gone, it touched me deeply. I recently lost my precious wife and I can understand the love and caring you have for yours. I'd love to buy you a coffee or 3, but for the life of me I can't find the link.”We gave him the link and were shocked to discover that he bought 40 coffees!! Thank you! If you’d like to buy us a coffee there’s a link in the description.☕ Buy Me a Coffee https://www.buymeacoffee.com/scottsVRecording and editing these sci-fi stories keeps us busy so we’re looking for volunteers.

Great podcast finding so many authors that I had forgotten about or never knew.” Thanks villian75!!We’re the #1 science fiction podcast in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, thanks to you!! We’ve hit # 1 in 14 countries where Apple podcasts tracks listeners. Thank you for making that happen!   Today’s story was written by Frederik Pohl and C. M. Kornbluth. Pohl has been on the podcast before but this marks Kornbluth’s debut. Born and raised in New York he learned to read by the age of three, wrote his own stories by the time he was seven, graduated from high school at thirteen, received a CCNY scholarship at fourteen, and was "thrown out for leading a student strike" without graduating. As a teenager, he became a member of the Futurians, an influential group of science fiction fans and writers. That’s where he met and became friends with Frederik Pohl, Donald A. Wollheim, Robert Lowndes, and his future wife Mary Byers.He wrote a handful of stories before the war and then penned 8 novels and more than 80 short stories. Kornbluth was scheduled to interview for the position of editor of The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction. He was running late because he had to shovel snow from his driveway and ran to meet his train, he suffered a fatal heart attack on the platform. He was only 34 years old.Today’s story can be found on page 112 of Infinity Science Fiction in February 1956, The Engineer by Frederik Pohl and C. M.

This show is great! If you like sci-fi you need to give this a listen. The narrator does a great job and the audio quality is top notch. You can tell Mr. Scott Miller puts a lot of love and effort into this project.
