Startling Stories Audiobook
January 1939
Read by Roger Price
Startling Stories was the younger sibling of Thrilling Wonder Stories. It began in 1939 at the urging of science fiction fans who clamored for a full-length novel in each issue. At this point, Thrilling Wonder Stories contained a variety of novelets and short stories, but fans wanted something longer that allowed for more character development. And thus, Startling Stories was born. Each issue started off with a book-length novel, and was filled out with a variety of short stories, science columns, special features and, of course, letters to the editor. Some of science-fiction’s best authors appeared in Startling Stories, including luminaries such as Stanley G. Weinbaum, Eando Binder, Edmond Hamilton, and Alfred Bester. The magazine thrived through the 1940s and early 1950s, but fading revenues forced it to close with the Fall 1955 issue, after a 99-issue run. Startling Stories now returns with these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s listeners as audiobooks.
