Pseudopod # 400

on August 20, 2014 | Leave a comment

Today, Pseudopod, the world’s largest horror podcast, will be celebrating it’s 400th episode. To commemorate this momentous occasion they’ll be gracing us with a special reading of the Nebula Award winning short story, “The Screwfly Solution.” The story, set in a world where women are being mass-murdered in the name of bringing men closer to God, was written by renowned Science Fiction Hall of Fame inductee, Alice Hastings Bradley who wrote under the pseudonym James Tiptree, Jr..
