Captain Future #4 Audiobook
The Triumph of Captain Future
by Edmond Hamilton
Read by Milton Bagby
 
Racing to the Ringed Planet in Answer to Earth’s Clarion Call, the Wizard of Science seeks a Forbidden Elixir of Life—and Finds the City of Eternal Youth!
 
The Captain Future stories were not only populated with magnificent characters, but they were also set in a wild, imaginative, almost psychedelic universe. Edmond Hamilton built worlds and star systems that in many ways completely disregarded what the public knew to be true about outer space, but they did not care. Nearly every planet in our solar system could support life and danger lurked there, too. Although the original stories took place amongst familiar planets, Hamilton would take readers far beyond anything familiar in later tales.
 
Published from 1940 to 1951, Captain Future stories initially take place in the far flung year of 1990. As the series progressed, Hamilton moved away from pinning the ongoing adventures to a particular time and focusing more on forming continuity, where stories built on one another. This allowed for a freedom of imagination, for Hamilton to tell stories without restrictions.
 
Although Captain Future was initially modeled on Doc Savage, hints and influences of other heroes make their way into the stories as well. For instance, the Planet Police summon Captain Future with a signal flare fired into the sky, similarly to Batman, the Phantom Detective, and others. Also, Captain Future has a female interest, although he never fully admits that she might be a romantic one. A member of the Space Patrol, Joan Randall proves in story after story that she can stand alongside the Futuremen. She also clearly has affection for Curt Newton, waiting for him to acknowledge his feelings for her that as so many Pulp heroines do.
 
Rocket into science fiction adventure and discover new worlds. Ripped from the pages of the Fall 1940 issue of Captain Future magazine, “The Triumph of Captain Future” is read with wonder and excitement by Milton Bagby.

Milton Bagby is a veteran radio announcer and voiceover specialist who first turned to audiobooks in 2010. Since then, Milton has worked on over a hundred audiobook projects as a narrator or producer. Drawing upon years of stage acting and the occasional bit part in films, Milton uses his experience to create characters that stand out in the ear of the listener.
 
“I am very much aware that a perfect stranger is going to invest eight or ten hours listening to me tell a story. I do my best to give the listener an experience in which the characters in that story come alive and sound real.”
 
When not behind a microphone, Milton is a writer. In addition to the well-received Rick Burkhart crime novels, Milton writes a line of 1950s style pulp stories, and is the author of dozens of magazine articles and two non-fiction books. Milton and his wife live in Nashville.
