Spider On The Web - Spider Robinson’s podcastSpider Robinson‘s latest podcast features what he calls a “a suicide prevention kit” of an episode. The kit‘s contents includes more of Spider’s favorite music, and TWO unabridged readings of short Science Fiction stories about suicide from the pen of Theodore Sturgeon! The first of the two is A Saucer Of Loneliness. It was first published in Galaxy Magazine’s February 1953 issue. It was adapted into a radio drama for X-Minus One in 1957. Was again adapted, for television this time, into a segment of one episode of The Twilight Zone in 1986. Finally in 2004 it received a ‘Retro Hugo’ award. A well deserved honor for this very solid story. The second, Suicide, was first published in 1970 in Adam Bedside Reader (this same issue included Harlan Ellison’s Wanted In Surgery).
