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.

This could be a Christmas story. If it is, it shows one way Peace on Earth can be attained! Not a Creature Was Stirring by Dean Evans, that’s next on The Lost Sci-Fi Podcast.Author Dean Evans makes his debut on the podcast. Evans wasn’t his real name, that would be George Kull. Couldn’t find his date of birth or where he was born but we know he lived in California. The only thing I could find about him was these words from author Frederik Pohl who said, ““There was a fellow named George Kull in California…who wrote pretty good light mysteries, but he wrote them in enormous volume, and I couldn’t sell them as fast as he wrote them. He was starving to death, and he was into me for like three thousand dollars when I wrote him off.” Kull, as Dean Evans, published 12 short stories from 1951 to 1953. His first story can be found on page 113 in Galaxy Science Fiction in December 1951, Not a Creature Was Stirring by Dean Evans…Next on The Lost Sci-Fi Podcast, He was dangerously insane. He threatened to destroy everything that was noble and decent—including my date with my girl! The Spy in the Elevator by Donald E.

Young Thom Ra travels back to the hideous Venus-Earth war, and ventures peril to win lovely Elren Dri for his mate! A Hitch in Time by Frederik Pohl, that’s next on The Lost Sci-Fi Podcast.Episode 200 of The Lost Sci-Fi Podcast didn’t go as planned. We’ve been facing some health challenges over the last 2 weeks and want to say thanks to all of you who have expressed your concern. Our plan was to get reacquainted with our old friend Bud Gregory for episode 200 but it’s a longer story than we are able to narrate at this moment. Funny how you take breathing for granted until you are struggling to breathe. So today’s story and the next few will all be less than an hour.We always love a good time travel story and that’s what we have for you today. From Thrilling Wonder Stories in June 1947, James MacCreigh is credited with writing the story on page 61, but we know the real author, A Hitch in Time by Frederik Pohl…Next on The Lost Sci-Fi Podcast, One man's fact is fantasy for another—except

Introducing that modest little superman, that shrinking violet of destiny, Ajax Calkins, and a world where you had to hop, in some way, to get where you wanted to go! Pogo Planet by Donald A. Wollheim, that’s next on The Lost Sci-Fi Podcast.More 5 Star reviews on Apple Podcasts! I missed this from several months ago from DERREKw, who gave us 5 Stars and says, “Worthy of the Mindwebs comparison! A friend recommended I check out your show with the huge compliment that it is at times similar to “Mindwebs” only without the background music and occasional help from other voice actors. I LOVE your show. I appreciate the source material used. I’ve come to really appreciate your consistency reading each story. Keep it up! Two Thumbs up, A+, and 5 Stars from one of your newest fans in Colorado Springs.”Thanks DERREKw and I’m sorry I didn't discover your awesome review until now. If you haven’t already left us a review on Apple Podcasts we’d really appreciate your honest review if you would be so kind.Donald A. Wollheim was a sci-fi fan, author, editor and publisher. He was a founding member of The Futurians, a New York based group of science fiction fans who were a major force in science fiction writing and fandom from 1937 to 1945. The 1979 first edition of The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction calls Wollheim "one of the first and most vociferous SF fans. He would go on to write eight novels and about a hundred short stories.The character “Ajax Calkins” the hero in today’s story, would appear in six stories written by Wollheim, but unfortunately it looks like none of them are in the public domain. We’ll meet Ajax Calkins on page 82 of the October 1941 issue of Future Combined with Science Fiction Magazine. Pogo Planet by Donald A.

What lasts forever? Does love? Does death?... Nothing lasts forever.... Not even forever Homecoming by Miguel Hidalgo, that’s next on The Lost Sci-Fi Podcast.When I discovered this story I knew I had to narrate it, and that was before I discovered that it was written by a 15 year old descendant of Simon Bolivar, the Liberator of America. Bolivar led what are currently the countries of Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, Panama and Bolivia to independence from the Spanish Empire.Homecoming appeared in If Worlds of Science Fiction magazine and they had this to say, “It’s a story that might have come from one of America’s more mature and experienced writers. Our assumption at first was that it did. But we were wrong. It’s a “first published” story (in America) by a young man named Miguel Hidalgo who is all of 15 years old. At first we didn't believe it, but it was confirmed and we found ourselves with not only a “first” but one that was written by the youngest writer (to our knowledge) ever to break into science fiction.”Born in Caracas, Venezuela, Miguel came to the United States, in a basket, at the age of two months. Began writing poetry at the age of five and before he was ten he had published numerous short stories as well as poetry. He traveled the world with his mother, who was one of the first women diplomats from Venezuela to the United States. How’s that for a bio.This story, and others like it, is the reason we created The Lost Sci-Fi Podcast, to share with the world a story that has been forgotten. An undiscovered gem.From If Worlds of Science Fiction in April 1958, discover this forgotten treasure on page 59, Homecoming by Miguel Hidalgo…Next on The Lost Sci-Fi Podcast, Introducing that modest little superman, that shrinking violet of destiny, Ajax Calkins, and a world where you had to hop, in some way, to get where you wanted to go!

His saucer was parked in the woods, and Mr. Steariot (from Venus) was parked in the lobby.... Short Snorter by Charles Einstein, that’s next on The Lost Sci-Fi Podcast.What does Willie Mays, Curb Your Enthusiasm, stuntman Super Dave Osborne and the 1991 movie Defending Your Life starring Albert Brooks, Meryl Streep and Rip Torn have to do with today’s story? The answer coming up.Thanks for listening, sharing and commenting on The Lost Sci-Fi Podcast on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, YouTube or wherever you listen. Comments on our YouTube channel have exploded in the last few weeks. Mirzamay says “I am loving your channel! Thank you for the blast from the past and the great entertainment. Phenomenal quality podcast, one of the best!” Thank you @mirzamay! Thunderace4588 had this to say “How you narrate these stories makes the characters come to life for me. Thank you Scott Miller.” Thank you @thunderace4588! Commenting on The World That Couldn’t be by Clifford D. Simak @chrisgale5634 says, “Simak was just brilliant. He is largely forgotten about these days, so it's great to honour his stories.” I agree chrisgale5634 and thanks for your comment. And harrygrimley4352 says “Narrator's voice is great. Makes me think of Casey Kasem.” Thanks harrygrimley4352 I hear that quite frequently and have heard it dating back to my days on the radio. As Casey Kasem was listened to by millions of adoring fans I accept your kind words as a huge compliment.Charles Einstein, the author of today’s story was an author and sportswriter. He was born in Boston is 1926. He was a newspaperman, specifically a baseball writer and his 1979 book, “Willie’s Time: Baseball’s Golden Age,” telling of Mays’s career and the events in American society when he starred for the Giants, was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. Einstein had two younger half-brothers, Bob and Albert. Bob Einstein was an actor, comedy writer and producer. He created and performed the character Super Dave Osborne and appeared on Curb Your Enthusiasm and Arrested Development. His brother and our authors half-brother was born Albert Lawrence Einstein, also known as Albert Brooks. The 1991 romantic comedy-fantasy film Defending Your Life, one of my favorite movies, was written, directed and starred Albert Brooks.There was a lot of talent in that family. Charles Einstein wrote several novels including, The Bloody Spur, on which the 1956 film While The City Sleeps, directed by Fritz Lang of Metropolis fame, was based. Charles wrote 5 short fiction stories in the late 1950s and early 60s. Look for his first short fiction story Tunnel 1971, written in 1957 in a future episode. Discover the third of Einstein’s 5 stories on page 77 of If Worlds of Science Fiction in August 1958, Short Snorter by Charles Einstein…Next on The Lost Sci-Fi Podcast, we’ll hear a story written by a teenage descendant of Simon Bolivar, What lasts forever?

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.
