Galaxy Science Fiction – BRAIN PLUCKER http://www.brainplucker.com THE WONDER PUBLISHING GROUP BLOG Wed, 01 Aug 2012 11:00:48 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Best SF Radio Drama — X MINUS 1 http://www.brainplucker.com/best-sf-radio-drama-x-minus-1/ Sun, 07 Feb 2010 18:34:30 +0000 http://www.brainplucker.com/?p=978 x minus 1What classic SF audio drama actually adapted contemporary stories from great science fiction authors like:
Isaac Asimov, Robert Heinlein, Robert Sheckley, Robert Bloch, Fredric Brown, Ray Bradbury, Frederik Pohl, Fritz Leiber, and Philip K. Dick to name several? Well, that would be X Minus 1. The show started as Dimension X in 1950-51 for NBC Radio with stories adapted from Astounding Stories. But continued as X Minus 1 in 1955 and adapted their stories from Galaxy Science Fiction. There were also original scripts by George Lefferts & Ernest Kinoy which hold their own against the SF greats. There’s a total of 126 episodes.

The 32 Arms of Santa Claus http://www.brainplucker.com/the-32-arms-of-santa-claus/ http://www.brainplucker.com/the-32-arms-of-santa-claus/#comments Tue, 22 Dec 2009 00:47:46 +0000 http://www.brainplucker.com/?p=949 The very versatile artist, Ed Emshweller (AKA Emsh), did a series of Christmas covers for Galaxy SF magazine in the 50s and early 60s. They all feature a four-armed Santa. I wonder if the Santa is a cyborg, mutant, or an alien. My vote is for a Mutant. All that mutative radiation from the magic dust.
