Startling Stories Audiobook
March 1949
Read by Milton Bagby and Paul Curtis
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.

Milton Bagby is a veteran radio announcer and voiceover specialist who first turned to audiobooks in 2010. Since then, Milton has worked on close to two hundred audiobook projects and is a 2017 Audie Awards winner, the audiobook industry's highest award. 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 many 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.

5 of 5 Startling Stories March 31, 2019
Reviewer: Richard Sommerfeld from Winter Springs, FL United States  
As always, order arrived either early or right on time, you guys are NEVER late! I always listen as I am driving so you are responsible for me having to find new reasons to go places every day! I think I have to drive less so the audiobooks last longer, or maybe I should just order more, what do you think?
