Over the holiday, I started a new column at The Fix Online. It’s called “Rocket Science”, where I’ll be reading and reviewing Hugo Award winners in the various short fiction categories. I started a similar thing on a short-lived blog I had called SFFreader. This one’s a bit more structured – I’ve got deadlines, and I’m going through them in a logical order. I sure enjoy doing it! The first column covers 1955 – 1956 and was posted on January 1.
The stories covered in that column were:
“The Darfstellar” by Walter M. Miller, Jr.
“Allamagoosa” by Eric Frank Russell
“Exploration Team” by Murray Leinster
“The Star” by Arthur C. Clarke
I know of no audio version of “The Darfstellar“.
“Allamagoosa” can be found on audio in humbly titled anthology The Greatest Science Fiction of the 20th Century, which is available from Audible.com.
An audio version of “Exploration Team” was produced by Dercum Audio in 1986.
“The Star” was recorded by Arthur C. Clarke for Caedmon (my preferred version), and can also be found in Fantastic Audio’s Collected Stories of Arthur C. Clarke series of audiobooks.
Time to update our Hugo winners on audio page! Lots of titles have been produced since we put that page together.
My Audiobook Fix column will continue, but will not be a regular feature. If I’ve got some short fiction audio to talk about, I’ll write it up and get it to them, but the column won’t appear monthly.
