    The 1950s in Review

    The 1950s in Review

    The Baker sisters have made it through all the books that have won retro hugos or regular hugos through 1959. They take a break from regular episodes to reflect on their experience of the books of that decade and to check on how they are doing with their goals both on a project and personal level.

    Double Star

    Double Star

    This is the 8th podcast for the two Baker sisters as they read through the Hugo award winning novels.  This time they are reading Heinlein's first official win (not a retro win) Double Star which was first published in 1956.  Both sisters enjoyed the novel and did a double take on Heinlein. Ha! You see what I did there?

    They's Rather Be Right

    They's Rather Be Right

    The seventh podcast from the Baker sisters covers the Hugo award winner They’d Rather Be Right by Mark Clifton and Frank Riley. It was serialized in the magazine Astounding and then won the Hugo, yes - we’ve returned to the regular Hugos again, for best novel in 1955. It was a low point for the sisters who struggled with the whole thing in general, but they did laugh a lot.

    Fahrenheit 451

    Fahrenheit 451

    In the 6th podcast the Baker sisters tackle the Hugo award winner Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. A science fiction futuristic dystopia which was published in 1953 and won a retro Hugo in 2004.  It held up well, is still a striking ‘any-day-now’ read.

    The Demolished Man

    The Demolished Man

    In this episode the Baker sister, they discuss the 1st Hugo awarded ever.  It was given to the book The Demolished Man by Alfred Bester published in 1952 and won the Hugo in 1953. This rather amazing book was enjoyed by both ladies and but the brevity of the book and oddly enough, the likeability of it, made for a shorter podcast.

    Farmer in the Sky

    Farmer in the Sky

    This is the 4th podcast for the Baker sisters Hugh Project and this is another retro Hugo; Farmer in the Sky by Robert Heinlein.  This young adult science fiction novel was first published in 1950, it won the retro Hugo in 2001 and could be considered a great novel for a boy scout enthusiast. Sadly neither sister are themselves scouting enthusiasts.
