    While reading this I wondered if it inspired some of “Big Steve’s” stories

  2. Bryan Bryan says:

    A short story that would uite 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 becomeThe most annoying thing about this story that one cannot overlook even considering its early appearance in SF the protagonists are astoundingly naïve Send us to Venus one way without any survival needs rations tools or even matches It's not enjoyable to read about ignorant people who get themselves in trouble through stupidity and then become a burden to those that would need to rescue them

  3. Kiarasvdm Kiarasvdm says:

    The classic tale of 'be careful what you wish for'

  4. Ralph McEwen Ralph McEwen says:

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

  5. Tim Tim says:

    Good for a laugh Worth a read

  6. Kumari de Silva Kumari de Silva says:

    A funny little short story from the golden age of Sci Fi It makes an attempt at an info dump early in the story when explaining how the cosmic express works but otherwise not too many changes in the world of tomorrow Our hero is a writer people still read books? And he uses a typewriter for his work not even a dictaphone It's enjoyable from a historical perspective Written when people still believed in the mysterious ether

    I liked the lesson of it to be happy with what you have because sometimes the grass isn't greener on the other side A good listen

  8. Herman Gigglethorpe Herman Gigglethorpe says:

    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 uickly learn that that going back to nature means living without modern conveniences and having to fend off dangerous and annoying animals rather than crushing pressure intense heat and toxic atmospheres like the real Venus They eventually are sent back to Earth and make a bestselling novel based on their experienceMany stories over romanticize nature I can't tell you exactly how much the in tune with nature cliche annoys me now Nature is worth preserving but can be hostile no matter how many times you sing to the trees I respect real hippie communes since they acknowledge and accept the hardships when trying to build a simpler lifestyle

  9. Denise Denise says:

    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

  10. Marisa James Marisa James says:

    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
