My father was a sci-fi fan of the old school. The man had the entire original Star Trek series on VHS, commercial free, and an Enterprise technical manual. So in his honor, a little late for Father's Day, we go back in time to look to the future as we dive into the wormhole of classic sci-fi. With segments voiced by Shaun Ennis, host of Stories of Yore and Yours.
Topics include Mary
Shelley, Jules Verne, HG Wells, Robert Chambers
and cosmic horror, NOT H. P. Lovecraft, William Hodgson and dying
earth, Richard Jeffries and the invention of post-apocalptia, Olaf
Stapledon and the multi-verse, the origin of the word "robot," Hugo
Gernsback's Amazing Stories, John Campbell's Astounding Stories,
the first and the longest-running sci-fi TV show and where all the
tapes went, and the OG of sci-fi... Star Trek!
