Stanley G. Weinbaum is best known for his short story “A Martian Odyssey” which has been influencing Science Fiction since it was first published in 1934. Weinbaum is considered the first writer to contrive an alien who thought as well as a human, but not like a human. A Martian Odyssey and its sequel are presented here as well as other Weinbaum gems including 3 stories featuring the egomaniacal physicist Haskel van Manderpootz and his former student, playboy Dixon Wells.
A Martian Odyssey has been said to be the best short SF story of all time. I agree!!!! Don't miss it. Unfortunately Stanley died at the age of 33 of lung cancer. Had he lived longer I'm sure he would have become one of the greatest SF writers. Gregg Margarite is a consumate reader.
Great sci-fi stories, not dated as one would expect, well worth the listen and Gregg does a great job of reading them too!
Brilliant early sci-fi. Fun writing, sometimes hilarious. Greg Margarite does a great job of reading and brings out the humor well. Very delightful. Technically, good mic placement, and recording environment.
