Podcast #14: Devolution

Devolution meme

In this week’s podcast I’m talking about the idea that humans were once greater or perhaps stranger beings than we are today and have since devolved. I present three pulp-era stories on this topic:

  • Devolution by Edmond Hamilton first appeared in Amazing Stories, in the December, 1936 issue.
  • False Dawn by Henry Kuttner first appeared in Thrilling Wonder Stories in the June 1942 issue.
  • The Code by Catherine Lucille Moore (as by Lawrence O’Donnell) first appeared in Astounding Science Fiction in the July 1945 issue.
