Four moons, four stories

Today marks the 400th anniversary of Galileo's announcement of the discovery of the Galilean moons. To celebrate in our own particular fashion, we present the following links to four online science fiction stories, one for each moon.

First up, representing Io, is our own Harl Vincent with "The Copper-Clad World", from the September 1931 issue of Astounding Stories.

Next, representing Europa, is Stanley G. Weinbaum with "Redemption Cairn", from the March 1936 issue of Astounding Stories.

Third, representing Ganymede, is Robert Silverberg with "Postmark Ganymede", from the September 1957 issue of Amazing Stories.

And finally, representing Callisto, is Philip K. Dick with "The Mold of Yancy", from the August 1955 issue of If.

Happy birthday, Galilean moons, from the Johnny Pez blog!

Liked 'em all, a fine selection from across the decades.

The Dick was the best; "manufactured consent" indeed.
