Pulp Crazy – Black Destroyer by A.E. Van Vogt

 

In this episode I discuss “Black Destroyer” by A.E. Van Vogt. The story first appeared in the July 1939 issue of Astounding Science Fiction and features the first appearance of Coeurl. Many believe this story ushered in the Golden Age of Science Fiction and is a strong influence on Ridley Scott’s “Alien”. Coeurl, the main antagonist still receives a lot of exposure today thanks to role playing games such as Final Fantasy, Dungeons & Dragons and Pathfinder.

Pulp Crazy – The Last Evolution by John W. Campbell

In this weeks episode my cousin Adam and I discuss John W. Campbell’s ground breaking science fiction story “The Last Evolution”. This story originally appeared in the August 1932 issue of Amazing Stories and is one of the first appearances of the technological singularity concept.

Now when we get to talking about the population of New York City, forgive us country boys for being so far off the mark.
