My Vacation In the Golden Age Resumes On September 17

I’ve been having a nice summer vacation away from my Vacation in the Golden Age. I’ve been catching up on reading and writing on other things. But I’ve started to get that itch again and I’m looking forward to Labor Day, when I will begin reading the September 1942 issue of Astounding Science Fiction in preparation for Episode 39 of my Vacation in the Golden Age. Expect to see Episode 39 here on Monday, September 17, and then continuing on its normal 2-week schedule thereafter until I decide I need another break.

Episode 39’s lead story is by Anthony Boucher. And if you need more of preview, here is the cover to the September 1942 issue. It’s like jumping 70 years into the past.


And if you just can’t wait, you can always get caught up with the 38 episodes that proceed this one. Stay tuned.
