You may have noticed the increase of science fiction stories on the podcast. When I made the decision to limit the amount of OTR (old time radio) played I had to look to other sources for stories. What I found was a huge store of classic science fiction available in the public domain. Most of which has been read by volunteers for LibriVox.org.
I love these stories. Not only are they good fun to hear, but they reach out from our past to remind us just how far we have come with our own technology. What I find more often than not is that the writers of that time predicted pretty well what we would have today. Yes, they had us owning the stars by 1990, but the science was sound and gadgets were dead on. Even the idea of the internet was predicted with unbelievable accuracy.
My question is this? Do you like hearing these stories? Do you want to hear more from the pulp magazines of the 50s and 60s? The number of horror stories, westerns, and other genres has about the same amount of titles. The problem with these is they are quite dated and the language used is difficult to read let alone follow. For these types of you really need the flair of OTR to make them interesting.
So my question stands, Do you like Science Fiction? Do you want more of them? Or are want some of those classic horror stories thrown in? Please let me know what you think. My door is wide open on this subject.
BTW: Listener stories will always trump any other type on Ron’s Amazing Stories!
