Publisher's Summary

Radio Archives Pulp Classics - Planet Stories audiobook - March 1953.

Total pulp experience. These exciting pulp adventures have been beautifully reformatted for easy listening as an audiobook that features every story, every editorial, and every column of the original pulp magazine.

During the science-fiction boom of the 1930s, there were more than a dozen pulp magazines dedicated to the subject. Analog, Startling Stories, Amazing Stories, Wonder Stories, Captain Future, and Super Science Stories were just a few. In 1939, the pulp magazine publisher of Jungle Stories, and many others, added its own entry into the sci-fi field, Planet Stories. Until it folded in 1955, it published groundbreaking science fiction from some of the genre's brightest stars. Planet Stories returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s listeners in electronic format.

But now, the time had come for man to recall its name and to worship it once again. Noorlythin arose and went out into the world of men and robots.

"What Inhabits Me?" - star-flung novelet by R. M. Williams

"The Berserker" - star-flung novelet by Charles V. De Vet

There was no reckoning with the Berserker. Twas said that “when an opening comes, he’ll play for it. And he’ll do it with Mars-minded violence!”
