    Synopsis
    Ray Bradbury was one of the most celebrated 20th-century American writers. Many of his stories have been turned into television shows and films. He wrote science fiction, fantasy, horror, and mystery stories. Among his most celebrated works are Fahrenheit 451, The Martian Chronicles, and The Illustrated Man. 'The Concrete Mixer' was written early in his career. It was first published in Thrilling Wonder Stories in April 1949. In it, a warlike race of Martians plans their glorious conquest of Earth, but one of them, Ettil Vrye, foresees defeat. He is given his choice of joining the Legion of War—or burning! The story contains quite a bit of humor and irony, things not often found in Bradbury stories.

However, he still serves as a consultant for a below-ground company seeking to come up with new 'gadgets.' His latest product idea is called 'The Tickler,' a device that is with you at all times to remind you of appointments and 'suggests' little motivations to improve efficiency. The device then begins to have unintended and frightening consequences which only the inventor seems to recognize.

    Synopsis
    In this fast-paced novel, Race Cargill had at one time been the best Terran Intelligence agent on the complex and mysterious planet of Wolf. He had repeatedly imperiled his life amongst the half-human and non-human creatures of that sullen world and he had repeatedly accomplished the fantastic missions until his name was emblazoned with glory. But that had all seemingly ended and for six long years he'd sat behind a boring desk inside the fenced-in Terran Headquarters, cut off there ever since he and a rival had scarred each other in a blood-feud. But when The Door Through Space swung suddenly open, the feud was on again—and with it a plot designed to check and destroy the Terran Empire.

But when a warrior from the Kerak Empire finds a way to circumvent the machine, actually killing his opponents, the results are devastating.

    Synopsis
    City at World's End: The midwestern town of Middletown is the 'first strike' of a new super bomb. However, instead of destroying the town, the attack rips a hole in the space-time continuum, sending the town and it's inhabitants to a distant Earth, cold and foreboding. The story of their struggle, survival, and ultimate success in rekindling the planet and dealing with the people and aliens of the future is the stuff of great science fiction. As you listen, see if you agree with the many who think this story was the origin of the Star Wars characters Chewbacca and Leia. The Stars, My Brothers: Edmond Moore Hamilton was a popular science-fiction author during the 'Golden Age' of American science fiction. 'The Stars, My Brothers' is considered one of his best, and certainly most imaginative, stories. A spaceman is killed in space and frozen. He is left orbiting the space station where he was killed in the hope that a method will be found to bring him back to life. That day finally comes a hundred years later, when he awakens to a very different world and comes to realize he has become both a symbol and a pawn in a human/alien conflict.

    Synopsis
    One big name writer per story is usually enough. When two of them appear to do one story, you can bet that story will be special. H. L. Gold and Robert Krepps were both 'big time' science fiction writers. Krepps also went by the pen name “Geoff St. Reynard.” Their collaboration resulted in a fantastically different kind of sci-fi story and one that keeps you guessing until the end. The story begins when a cross-section of humans are abducted from a roller coaster in the middle of the ride! They wake up in a cage in a huge room, where they are subjected to tests by giant aliens. The question is, can this disparate group work together to figure out where they are...and how to get back home?

    Synopsis
    Harry Bates was an American science fiction writer and editor who would, most likely, be totally forgotten today if it were not for this one extraordinary story of an alien named Klaatu and a giant and super-powerful robot. The story became the basis for the 1951 and 2008 films The Day the Earth Stood Still. However, as is often the case, the movie took only some elements from the story and changed others completely. In the story, for example, the robot is named 'Gnut.' In the movie, it became 'Gort.' Many people who read the story and see the movies seem to feel that, although the first movie became a classic, the original story has a much more interesting and thought-provoking twist than either of the movies.
