    One thought on “The Cosmic Express”

    1. A short story that would quite simply be unpublishable even a few years beyond its 1930 publication date. Prospective readers should only seek this out for an historical view of the very earliest science fiction, and of the very earliest work of Jack Williamson, who was here developing into the fine writer that he would shortly become.The most annoying thing about this story that one cannot overlook even considering its early appearance in SF: the protagonists are astoundingly naïve. "Send us t [...]

    2. For a pulp sci-fi story, this is pretty good. The lead characters are a husband who writes adventure novels and his wife who decide that modern life is too boring and sedate. I wonder how many old sci-fi stories essentially begin with the Zelda CDI "Gee, it sure is BORING around here! They plan on using Earth's teleportation network to send them to a new primitive life on Venus, but quickly learn that that going back to nature means living without modern conveniences and having to fend off dange [...]

    3. WutStupid people travel to Venus to get back to nature. They take no provisions with them. They almost die. Fate saves them. Clear skies thereafter. I imagined this tale as a black and white RKO Pictures movie. Only way to get through this.

    4. Adorable (and adorably dated) short story in which a young couple learn the difference between fiction and reality. And I'm particularly fond of the view of the future from the 1930s, in which one can beam to Venus but still use a typewriter.

    5. Eric and Nada decide they’ve had enough of civilization. They want to go to Venus. Not that anyone lives there. They’re aware of the time it would take to travel that distance. That’s where the Cosmic Express comes in. Please read the read of the review here.

    6. Downloaded from librivox as an mp3. Good short story. Stoic protagonists never complained about the stupid choices they made.
