Yummy SF From 1940!

My most recent "Looking Back on Genre History" segment is the first of my two-part discussion of some of the science fiction novels that are eligible for the 1941 Retro Hugo Award (which will be presented this year at WorldCon/MidAmeriCon II). It's available here on Episode 423 of StarShipSofa. If you listen, I hope you enjoy!

Just listened this morning. Excellent as usual, & a few items I was totally unfamiliar with.

Oh, thank you so much for your feedback! I really appreciate it. I'm happier with the second half of the two-parter, which is coming soon, but I'm very glad to hear that this one included some information that was new to you. Thanks a million for listening!

It was nice to see you shout out some love to KALLOCAIN, one of the most depressing books I have ever read! It is already on my Retro Hugo nomination ballot. Karin Boye committed suicide less than a year after the book's publication; I can only imagine what her state of mind may have been.

I look forward to listening to part 2. Perhaps you'll be shouting out some love to L. Ron Hubbard and Edmond Hamilton as well?

It's lovely to hear you "enjoy" (not the right word, of course -- appreciate, perhaps?) the amazing Kallocain, too. Karin Boye's story is such a tragic one. Imagine what she might have written had she known a longer life! Very sad, as you rightly point out.

Thanks so much for listening!

Oh, we're definitely on the same wavelength! I do indeed cover both of these. I really hope you enjoy it.
