The Doom from Planet 4” by Jack Williamson

I spent a few hours over the Thanksgiving Day weekend browsing the digitized issues of Astounding Stories magazine at the Internet Archive. One of the stories I stumbled over is "The Doom from Planet 4" by Jack Williamson. Written during the age of radio and published in July of 1931, the story focuses on a remote scientific outpost in the Pacific Ocean that establishes communication with alien beings, only to suffer ... The Doom from Planet 4!

The Doom from Planet 4” starts on Page 5 of the July 1931 issue of Astounding Stories and goes on to Page 6, Page 7, Page 8, Page 9, Page 10, Page 11, Page 12, Page 13, Page 14, Page 15, Page 16, Page 17, Page 18, and Page 19.

For an alternative approach to the story that is more in tune with old time radio, listen to Bill Coon read “The Doom from Planet 4” in a 2007 podcast of The Time Traveler Show.
