1925: The Radio Beasts by Ralph Milne Farley

May 23, 2008

An earthling visits Venus, where he defeats a race of belligerent ant people using terrestrial radio technology. While boring and badly written, this book is nonetheless a fascinating showcase of pre-atomic age human fears and technological advancements: belligerent ants and the radio, respectively.  Today, it’s terrorism and the Slap ChopTM. And those terrorists are gonna love our nuts.

On a scale of ants ranging from fire to carpenter, this book is: Jemima.

Video killed this book.
