I’m famous! Or, at least, I’ve just gotten some very nice press

Nancy Keaton just wrote a lovely story about me for LewisTalk – “Sara Light-Waller Illustrates Hope through Old-Fashioned Pulp Fiction.”  Thank you, Nancy, for the kind story, it’s a treat to be on the other side of the tape recorder once and a while. Here’s an excerpt from the article – Sara Light-Waller’s first adult […]

Sunday Evening Etymology

The term used to be “unhuman.” Now, it’s “inhuman.” I’m not sure exactly when it changed, certainly by the 1970’s.

Book Review: The Mind Thing by Fredric Brown

“Conspiracy Theory” in 1930’s Science Fiction

UPDATE: When you’re dealing with long defunct magazines and house names of writers it can be difficult to determine who wrote what. Will Garth was one of the pseudonyms used by Henry Kuttner, it was also a house name used by the Thrilling group of pulp magazines: Thrilling Wonder Stories, Startling Stories,  Strange Stories, and […]
