IN THIS EPISODE: it’s #ThrillerThursday, and this week I’m bringing you a tale recommended to me by one of you, the Weirdo family. Louis Padgett’s story, “Mimsy Were the Borogoves” was originally published in the February 1943 issue of “Astounding Science Fiction Magazine”. It was judged by the Science Fiction Writers of America to be among the best science fiction stories written prior to 1965, and in 2007 it was loosely adapted into a feature-length film titled The Last Mimzy. The title of the original short story was directly inspired by a verse from “Jabberwocky“, a poem found in the classic novel Through the Looking-Glass by author Lewis Carroll. And in 1976, Caedmon Records released a spoken word album of the short story, narrated by William Shatner. Well – I don’t know that I’ll be as entertaining as William Shatner with the story, but I’ll do my best for you.
