Wikipedia article of the day for September 20, 2017

The Wikipedia article of the day for September 20, 2017 is Planet Stories.
Planet Stories was an American pulp science fiction magazine, published by Fiction House between 1939 and 1955. It featured adventures in space and on other planets, and was initially focused on a young readership. Malcolm Reiss was editor or editor-in-chief for all of its 71 issues. It was launched at the same time as Fiction House’s more successful Planet Comics. Almost every issue’s cover emphasized scantily clad damsels in distress or alien princesses. Planet Stories did not pay well enough to regularly attract the leading science fiction writers of the day, but did on occasion manage to obtain work from well-known names including Isaac Asimov, Clifford Simak, and Philip K. Dick. The two writers most identified with the magazine are Leigh Brackett and Ray Bradbury, both of whom set many of their stories on a romanticized version of Mars that owed much to the depiction of Barsoom in the works of Edgar Rice Burroughs. Bradbury contributed an early story in his Martian Chronicles sequence, and Brackett authored a series of adventures featuring Eric John Stark.

You’d think a room full of west coast Hollywood liberal entertainment elites would be the last place Sean Spicer would be invited. You’d be so, so wrong.
