Short Science Fiction Collection 030

Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.4 stars; 126 reviews)

Science Fiction is speculative literature that generally explores the consequences of ideas which are roughly consistent with nature and scientific method, but are not facts of the author’s contemporary world. The stories often represent philosophical thought experiments presented in entertaining ways. Protagonists typically “think” rather than “shoot” their way out of problems, but the definition is flexible because there are no limits on an author’s imagination. The reader-selected stories presented here were written prior to 1962 and became US public domain texts when their copyrights expired. (Summary by Gregg Margarite) (6 hr 36 min)

Support Raycism. Support freedom

(4.5 stars)

All these stories were written by old mostly cis gendered mostly white folks. Remember everything old is raycist. These books are soon to be banned because Jeff Bezos needs you to subscribe to antifascist materials being sold to you by trillion dollar corporations in bed with the government. Free audio material is fascist and raycist. Listening to this audio will get you put on a list of right wing terrorists.

Another good and varied collection

(4 stars)

Good to great readers, some interesting stories and a nice mix.
