There’s a new Zooniverse project online today: Sunspotter. Essentially a game of hot-or-not for sunspot data; you are shown two images of sunspot groups and asked which is more complex. That might sound odd at first, but it’s really quite easy when you try it – and extremely useful in helping astronomers understand the physics of our star, the Sun.
Sunspotter actually went live a few months ago, but there wasn’t much data at the time, so we didn’t share the link very widely. Now the results from that first trial have been validated and the science works! A new batch of more than 200,000 images has been added to the site and we need everyone to help us rank them in order of complexity.
You can keep up to date with results and news from Sunspotter on TwitterFacebookGoogle+, and the project’s own blog.
Try Sunspotter online at sunspotter.org: it works in web browsers on laptops, desktops, tablets and phones.

Enough With Zombies! Bring on the Pirate Apocalypse! by A. M. DellamonicaThe first time I saw the Global Warming Coffee Mug, it was at the American Museum of Natural History. The mug is a commonly-found gift store item in science-y tourist attractions: aquariums, Biodiversity Centers, science museums. The idea is that you pour hot fluids into the mug, and its heat-reactive plastic artwork changes color, transforming alarming chunks of the planet’s land mass into ocean.

Hurricane Fever and the Caribbean’s Forgotten Space Program by Tobias BuckellIt is, without doubt, the biggest gun I’ve ever seen. I’m in Barbados doing research, and I’m standing under a 100 caliber barrel. The thing looks big enough to crawl into, but not quite. And the barrel just keeps going and going. Big enough that I have to trudge through the wet grass a ways to get some perspective on the whole thing. This cannon is so damn big it has a structure around the barrel to keep it rigid.

~~~ June 20, 2014 The Family Doctor “Hello there, this is The Family Doctor ….” So began the 1932 radio program The Family Doctor. This introduction came from the family doctor himself, Dr. Grant Adams. The Family Doctor was a family drama. Cedarton is a typical small town in an unnamed state, where you knew your neighbors and you could leave your doors unlocked. Today the show is a reminder of simpler times, when old-fashioned moral values were in full bloom and the sense of community was strong. Adams is a kindly small town doctor who serves the citizens of Cedarton, tending their bodies as well as their souls. He is a pillar of the community, dispensing both medical advice and common sense wisdom to patients in need of both. Wise and humorous, Adams helps keep his patients on a moral path when they stumble while tending to their bodily ills. This includes an overweight policeman who’s distrustful of strangers and the town gossip who hurts the feelings of others with her insensitivity. Each episode is a combination of medical treatment and sage advice, not to mention drama such as dam burstings, robberies and attempted suicides, and it’s easy to see that The Family Doctor was an early prototype for television’s later medical soap operas. Unlike many programs of the day, The Family Doctor had re-appearing characters and story arcs. With its roster of colorful characters, from Griff, the boat rental proprietor who works too hard and won’t rent boats to young unmarried couples, to Pete May, the drugstore owner who has to drive Dr. Adams on a house call, to Elle Marie, who is suicidal, to Chick, who works at the drugstore and is the object of affection of two young girls who vie for his attention, Cedarton feels three-dimensional. The show ended with a three-part storyline in which Dr. Adams was forced to decide about his future, and that of Cedarton, in the episodes “The Call”, “The Decision” and “Farewell to Cedarton”. The Family Doctor was produced by Transco Syndication. There were a total of 39 fifteen minute episodes produced, and are included in this set. This doctor makes house calls. 10 hours. $29.98 Audio CDs / $14.99 Download 70th Anniversary D-Day 34 Hours of CBS Coverage It was the largest, most ambitious, and most successful military operation ever attempted — and radio was there to cover it.

Special 50% discount Offer Boston Blackie Volume 2 “Enemy to those who make him an enemy…Friend to those who have no friend!” That’s Boston Blackie, safecracker turned crime fighter and a long-running favorite with fans of straight-ahead detective fiction. The actor who would ultimately be radio’s Blackie for the greatest length of time seemed, initially, to be a rather odd choice for the part: Broadway leading man and sometime soap opera actor Richard Kollmar, best known to radio fans along the Eastern seaboard as the urbane Dick of WOR’s “Breakfast with Dorothy and Dick,” a morning show which also featured his wife, newspaper columnist Dorothy Kilgallen. In 1944, he was contracted to star in a series of 220 syndicated episodes of “Boston Blackie,” produced at station WOR in New York City and distributed by the Frederic W. Ziv Company of Cincinnati. The programs were not in-tended to be groundbreakers or trendsetters; instead, this solid, workmanlike product of the WOR writing and dramatic staff was designed to be equally successful in both major metropolitan markets and small-town settings. Its professional gloss, coupled with lighthearted storytelling, kept “Boston Blackie” in distribution well into the 1950s, remaining for many years a reliable feature for small-town stations across the United States. The able and rather charming Kollmar is joined in these syndicated episodes by two other familiar WOR voices: Maurice Tarplin – the “Mysterious Traveler” himself – as Inspector Faraday, and Jan Minor, who would later best be known as Madge, the wisecracking manicurist for Palmolive Dishwashing Detergent, as girlfriend/inconvenience Mary Wesley. There’s no tormented noir drama here, no deep layers of introspection, just good old-fashioned crime solving fun. And you can enjoy the clean, crisp sound of these newly restored episodes in this second collection from Radio Archives – ten more hours of great sounding light-hearted detective action and adventure. Included are the first two shows from the 1944 summer series starring Chester Morris, as broadcast over NBC, and the remaining shows feature Dick Kollmar in the leading role. 10 hours. Regular Price $29.98 – Specially priced until July 3 for $14.99 Audio CDs / $7.49 Download Will Murray’s Pulp Classics #52 The Scorpion Audiobook Satan’s Incubator by Edith and Ejler Jacobson writing as Randolph Craig Read by Michael C. Gwynne. Liner Notes by Will Murray When we released the first issue of The Octopus as an audiobook, of course you asked for more. This ultra-rare 1939 pulp magazine was a Weird Menace extravaganza named after its villain, with the nominal hero operating in not two, but three identities battling him every step of the way. For reasons that remain recondite, the second issue of The Octopus was retitled The Scorpion. And the sinister supervillain was renamed. Otherwise, the magazine was a direct continuation of the previous incarnation, with the new leader of the Purple Eyes Cult attempting to force New York to knuckle under his iron rule through terror and intimidation. Only the Skull Killer could stand up to him. There’s a lot to be said for this crazy pulp concept. And much more to be wondered about. Why did Popular Publication change the title? No one recalls. But only a few months prior to the debut of The Octopus early in 1939, The Spider’s Web movie serial debuted. It pitted the Master of Men against the super-criminal called the Octopus. This was a different Octopus, but perhaps Popular Publications’ editors decided the name was too good not to exploit. Quite possibly Columbia Pictures felt that Popular was infringing upon their rights, and asked them to cease and desist, forcing a hasty rewrite of Randolph Craig’s second novel. It’s as good a theory as any. For that matter, who was the pulpster lurking behind the pseudonym, Randolph Craig? Was he even one individual? Theories range from The Spider’s Norvell Page to Terror Tales mainstay Donald G. Cormack. Popular’s records show that Edith and Ejler Jacobson were paid to rewrite the Octopus origin story, The City Condemned to Hell. But the single payment record that survives for Satan’s Incubator suggests that the husband and wife editorial team may have penned the only Scorpion novel from scratch. For yes, sadly, this is the end of the brief but bloody career of Jeffrey Fairchild, who also did good as ghetto medico Dr. Skull and by night operated as the scourge of the underworld, the Skull Killer, stamping a grisly death’s head on the foreheads of his dead, defeated enemies. Now, steel yourself for this hair-raising sequel read by the nervous but otherwise very capable Michael C. Gwynne. For as vicious and diabolically over-the-top as the Octopus was, the Scorpion is far, far more sinister. Here, he transforms entire families into soulless, bloodthirsty maniacs…. Also included are three weird novelettes, William Hines’ “Evil in a Glass Jar,” Donald Dale’s “Vendetta for the Dead,” and Wyatt Blassingame’s “The Corroding Death!” The Skull Killer strikes again! 6 hours $23.98 Audio CDs / $11.99 Download Robert Weinberg Presents Necroscope® The Möbius Murders Audiobook by Brian Lumley Read by Nick Santa Maria A Necroscope® as defined by Brian Lumley, the British author of The Necroscope® series, is a person with an ESP power that allows him to communicate with the dead. A Necroscope® contacts the minds of corpses, which do not perish at death. Communication is two-way and peaceful. Harry Keough is the greatest Necroscope® in the world. Harry Keough always considered himself a master of the Möbius Continuum—another dimension existing parallel to all space and time. It served as his personal instantaneous gateway to anywhere in the known universe, past or present. But Harry’s knowledge was not unique; two other intelligences, with powers similar to his, existed. One was the long-dead August Ferdinand Möbius himself, the German astronomer, mathematician, and discoverer of the Möbius Strip. Only after death was Möbius able to mentally explore his previously theoretical Continuum. The other was Harry’s son, who not only inherited his father’s mathematical skill but also the metaphysical talent by means of which the Necroscope® conversed with dead people in their graves. Thus, it was a major shock to Harry, when returning home via the Möbius Continuum from an adventure in Las Vegas, he observed for an instant a unknown human hurtling uncontrolled through the endless coils of the Möbius Continuum. Who was this stranger and how was he rocketing through the darkness of the mind-numbing dimension? More to the point, if he was not someone who entered the dimension on his own, who sent him there? Was this an attempt at murder by Möbius? Harry felt sure that neither his son or Professor Möbius was responsible for this outrage. Then who was? It was a question that Harry felt he had to answer, even if it meant putting his own life in danger. It’s an all-new, standalone adventure, set in the incredible world of Harry Keough, the Necroscope®! Brian Lumley is the author of the bestselling Necroscope® series of vampire novels. An acknowledged master of Lovecraft-style horror, Brian Lumley has won the British Fantasy Award and been named a Grand Master of Horror by both the World Fantasy Convention and the Horror Writers Association. His works have been published in more than a dozen countries and have inspired comic books, role-playing games, and sculpture, and been adapted for television. When not writing, Lumley can often be found spear-fishing in the Greek islands, gambling in Las Vegas, or attending a convention somewhere in the US. Lumley and his wife live in England. 5 hours $19.98 Audio CDs / $9.99 Download Robert Weinberg’s photo gallery Bob with Walter Gibson, author of the Shadow novels at Pulpcon 1980 The Complete Cases of Max Latin Audiobook by Norbert Davis with an introduction by John D. MacDonald Read by Milton Bagby Enjoy the adventures of Max Latin, the detective who doesn’t want to be a detective! Author Norbert Davis mixed the classic hard-boiled style with humor, making Max Latin unique in pulp fiction. Appearing for five screwball stories in Dime Detective, this new edition includes an authoritative introduction by fellow Dime Detective scribe, John D. MacDonald. “Watch Me Kill You!” — I’ll do an artistic job of it and everything’ll be over and we’ll have you all comfortable in your coffin before you know it. We will, that is, if we can keep Latin, the only shamus who might gum the works, sufficiently soaked in brandy till your grave’s filled. “Don’t Give Your Right Name” — If you happen to get in the line of fire of a baleful Borgia on a murder rampage. Take a lesson from a shamus with a shady rep and stagger out of the way with plenty of brandy under your belt. You’ll come out on top much quicker, with dough in your kick to boot, and a hell of a lot less grief. “Give the Devil His Due” — As he accepts a murder commission—for a price—and joins up with the busy folk who are searching the missing Jupiter Zachary—to make sure he stays that way, and preferably dead. “You Can Die Any Day” — In a variety of unpleasant ways, as the unctuous Mrs. Gregory Farmer soon found out when she decided to become a client of that nonesuch of the genus sleuth, the brandy-drinking Latin, who couldn’t keep his feet out of the blood puddles any more than he could keep his beak away from a sniffing-glass. “Charity Begins At Homicide” — With Max Latin and Carter-Heason, the guy strictly from Kipling, following the latest goings-on of the “Charity” racket.

Dime Mystery Magazine Edith and Ejler Jacobson and Donald Dale In 1934 a new type of magazine was born. Known by various names — the shudder pulps, mystery-terror magazines, horror-terror magazines — weird menace is the sub-genre term that has survived today. Dime Mystery Magazine was one of the most popular. It came from Popular Publications, whose publisher Harry Steeger was inspired by the Grand Guignol theater of Paris. This breed of pulp story survived less than ten years, but in that time, they became infamous, even to this day.

It made its debut in February 1932 and lasted for an astounding 135 issues. It finally closed after World War II ended, with the November 1946 issue. During its run, it presented a wide assortment of high-flying aerial series, including The Red Falcon, The Vanished Legion, The Three Mosquitoes, Molloy and McNamara, The Black Sheep of Belogue, The Mongol Ace, Chinese Brady, Captain Babyface, Smoke Wade and others.

These high-flying exploits were tall tales of a World War that might have been, featuring monster bats, German zombies, wolf-men, harpies, Martians, and even tentacled floating monsters. Most of these monstrosities were the work of Germany’s seemingly endless supply of mad scientists, chief of whom was G-8’s recurring Nemesis, Herr Doktor Krueger. G-8 battled Germany’s Halloween shock troops for over a decade, not ceasing until the magazine folded in the middle of World War II. G-8 and his Battle Aces return in vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format. $2.99. 99 cent eBook Singles Each 99 cent eBook Single contains a single short story, one of the many tales selected from the pages of Dime Mystery and Terror Tales.

Also includes Keith Taylor, Phyllis Ann Karr, and more. 148 pages. Weird Tales: The Unique Magazine From March of 1923 to September of 1954, Weird Tales was the most influential of all pulp magazines in the horror and fantasy genres. Weird Tales has enjoyed a devoted following for many decades as the very first magazine of gothic fantasy, sci-fi, and horror. Founded in 1923, the pioneering publication introduced the world to such counter-culture icons as Cthulhu the alien monster god and Conan the Barbarian. Weird Tales is well known for launching the careers of great authors like H.P. Lovecraft, Ray Bradbury, and Robert E. Howard — even, Tennessee Williams made his first sale here! — not to mention legendary fantasy artists like Virgil Finlay and Margaret Brundage. The magazine’s influence extends through countless areas of pop culture: fiction, certainly, but also rock music, goth style, comic books, gaming… even Stephen King has called Weird Tales a major inspiration. Weird Tales: The Modern Magazine After the original magazine operation folded in 1954, there were several brief attempts to revive it — reprint anthologies in the ’60s, four new magazine issues in the ’70s, four original paperbacks in the early ’80s — before the resurrection finally achieved full-fledged afterlife under editor-publishers George H. Scithers, Darrell Schweitzer and John Gregory Betancourt. Beginning in 1988, Weird Tales has been published more or less continuously. These 25 year old magazines are Brand new and have never been read. Radio Archives is proud to have a large inventory so that everyone can have a copy of this great magazine. $9.95 The Shadow, Annual #1 The Knight of Darkness crushes supercrime in thrilling pulp novels by Walter B.
