Captain Future #9 Audiobook
Quest Beyond the Stars
by Edmond Hamilton
Read by Milton Bagby
 
Ride With Curt Newton, the world’s greatest space-farer, and the Futuremen as they leave the known star trails to penetrate the source of cosmic rays, the very core of the universe!
 
Science fiction is full of heroes, from space faring lawmen to hardened space militiamen to brave warriors. Only one hero, though, exemplifies every trait that a great hero sailing the stars should have. Captain Future, created largely by Edmond Hamilton based on a concept given to him from Thrilling Publications. Equal parts genius, fighter, scientist, explorer, and loyal team member, Captain Future set the standard for what great science fiction stories should be, the impact of the stories still being felt today.
 
A space hero most definitely requires a spacecraft, and Captain Future’s was one of the most memorable. Leaving its own distinctive rocket trail across the stories, the Comet was the ultimate ship for the perilous, mysterious missions the Captain and his companions undertook. The craft was fully equipped in every way needed. Aptly named, the Comet itself could be a mystery, having the unique ability to hide in plain sight in outer space, camouflaged as an actual comet.
 
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, at least by name, Hamilton would take readers far beyond anything familiar in later tales.
 
Rocket into science fiction adventure and discover new worlds. Ripped from the pages of the Winter 1942 issue of Captain Future magazine, “Quest Beyond the Stars” 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.
