  • I first read "Who Goes There?," by the well-known Golden Age SF editor John W. Campbell, as a young adult and I have a lot of residual affection for it, and that's clearly coloring my 4 star rating for it. It's gloriously, unabashedly pulp SF and it's from 1938, so just know that going in. Once you get over the occasionally deep purple prose and the fact that there are only male scientists at this camp, there's a great story here. This is a old-fashioned SF monsters-from-space horror story about [...]


  • Who Goes There?, by John W. Campbell Jr is the novella on which "The Thing", the 1982 film directed by John Carpenter, is based. It was first published in the August 1938 edition of the "Astounding Science Fiction" magazine, under the pen name Don A. Stuart. The story is set in Antarctica, where an isolated group of scientific researchers find the body of an alien creature in the ice. They realise that its spaceship must have crashed there 20 million years before. With misgivings, they proceed t [...]


  • "The huge blowtorch McReady had brought coughed solemnly. Abruptly it rumbled disapproval throatily. Then it laughed gurglingly. . ."Yikes.



  • The premise behind Howard Hawks' 1951 film "The Thing From Another World" -- one of my all time favorite films (not the colorized travesty).However, if I had read this novella first, I probably would've hated it. The film does not follow the story very closely but it does keep the skeleton of the story. This is one of these classic premises. A group of people isolated and trapped with a killer. Yet, they don't know who the killer is! They can't trust each other, yet they have to trust each other [...]


  • 3.5*An Antarctic research crew finds unfriendly alien, kills it only to find it can't really be killed.I love the movie The Thing, a fantastic sci fi horror that oozed paranoia and gore. This just didn't live up to the movie. It was still an interesting read but I didn't get any closure at the end, the flow of the book felt stilted and dialogue forced. There was also too many characters to concentrate on in such a short read and it got a bit confusing trying to keep everyone straight.Enjoyable e [...]


  • One of the things that surprised me about this 1938 Hugo-winner was its conformity to modern science. I am not enough of a historian to always remember at what point people knew what facts, so I was a little surprised at the references to atomic power, and fairly advanced discussions of biochemistry. Physicists or biologists would probably find some fault with the technical details in this novella, but it reads as quite a plausible, relatively "hard" SF story given that the premise is a shapeshi [...]


  • Okay, maybe to some, this is an obscure short story from an obscure writer better known for thriller science fiction than long involved novels. Or maybe, he's a household name in household's other than my own. Either way, I really liked this story. It's short. It's scary. It has a creative villain that is, perhaps, ahead of his time. At the heart of it it evokes man's fear of the unknown and pits his instinct for survival against his desire to understand the universe around him. Above all, it's [...]

  • I can't understate how terribly this thing was written. While the premise was interesting enough to create a classic in the hands of someone with a talent for the craft (I'm looking at you, John Carpenter), this original story fails on all levels. The characters are flat and interchangeable, changing their minds in mid sentence and wandering through tangential info dumps and speculations that come out of nowhere. Even stage direction is so lacking that you can't tell what's happening. People app [...]


  • Il classico fanta-horror del '38 che ha ispirato l'omonimo capolavoro cinematografico di John Carpenter, a sua volta remake de "La cosa da un altro mondo" del '51, ed il prequel (pessimo) del 2011, puó non essere invecchiato benissimo, ma rimane un gran bel racconto "lovecraftiano": il gruppo di scenziati in antartide le cui menti razionali si trovano ad affontare l'alieno e l'ignoto mi ha ricordato parecchio "Alle montagne della follia" del Solitario di Providence E la creatura infesta non sol [...]


  • Loved this. A very well done sci-fi/horror novella that definitely stands the test of time. Love the Carpenter movie too. The 2011 movie version sucked.


  • I've always loved the movie The Thing. As if the setting of Antarctica isn't scary enough, add a shape-shifting alien to the mix and double down on the scares with the caveat -- you can't trust anyone.It's always a worry when you go back to the source material of a project you love. Will it hold up? Will it be like you remembered? Or will it fall short of what you've no doubt built up within your own head? While writing has changed immensely since 1938 when this story was first released, I focus [...]


  • 3.5 Stars actuallyThis novella is a milestone in sci-fi genre. Three movie adaptations (in 1951, 1982 & 2011) and then a novel based on a 1982 movie are more than enough to prove that. In fact the concept and settings have been adopted and explored so many times (with certain improvisation here and there) over the last 8 decades that unfortunately the story has lost its charm quite a bit.A group of scientists discover an alien spaceship frozen in Antarctica, where it crashed twenty million y [...]


  • The premise of John W. Campbell's "Who Goes There" is so pervasive in the science-fiction and fantasy genre (alien can look shift to look and sound like any member of a small, isolate group of people) that many readers will find it difficult to put those notions aside and really dig into what is one of the most entertaining and influential novellas of the genre. Part of that is due to the strong influence of the two movie adaptations of the work, both known as "The Thing." The other is that ever [...]


  • "No thing made by intelligent beings can tangle with the dead immensity of a planet's natural forces and survive."I didn't know this was a novel before I watched the movie. I might never have known, had it not been one of amazon's kindle daily deals. However, I do know and I've read it and I rather enjoyed it. The premise is brilliantly thought up. 37 men isolated on Antarctica with a shape-shifting alien. Who's real, who isn't? And for these men to battle something they don't know a thing about [...]


  • I enjoy reading a classic SiFi story when I can to see how some of the themes and concepts of the genre got started and how some of the older writers used, and in many cases invented them. I am always impressed with these early stories when I think of the time they were written in and how they must have seemed so fresh and new to a reader of that era. This was an interesting read because the story focuses really more on the people trapped with the monster rather than the monster itself. Nice rea [...]


  • Most of what needs to be said about this novella has already been said. It is indeed worth your time, and there are some flaws in it. I won't belabor these flaws but will instead point out one: the characters "speech" at each other rather than speak with each other. And the speeches they direct at one another do begin to take on a disconcerting uniformity. The voice of these speeches is florid, tangential, and a bit pretentious. So at times I found this to be distracting. Having said that, WHO G [...]


  • Excellent story. I've wanted to read this for years! Such a cool and unique concept especially for 1938! This has turned into an iconic story and become entrenched in pop culture because of the film adaptations but the story itself is terrific in its own right. A quick paced, sci-fi/horror lover's dream that gives us just enough monster action to satisfy and just enough science to explain. I loved it. The creature descriptions are neat and the characters are good enough. For the time it was writ [...]


  • Surprisingly dull and boring, giving it has such a nice premise that has already been worked brilliantly by some other people. In all honesty, this is just a seriously bad novella with a few flat characters that, in the end, are all one and the same and some awkward, uninspiring prose.



  • Who Goes There? Is aCreepy, Sci Fi, Horror Story.Watched the 1951 film,The Thing from another World.Saw in the credits that it was based on this book.So of course, had to give it a listen.Glad I did.Narrator Edward E. French does a nice job.Clean Story.


  • When a group of scientific researchers discover a spaceship buried in the ice of Antarctica, they thaw its alien pilot for study, only to unleash a shape-shifting terror that makes each of them suspect as a deadly enemy - and all of them responsible for ending the threat before it flees the isolated base. This is the novella by the legendary science fiction editor John W. Campbell that inspired 1951's The Thing from Another World, as well as 1982's The Thing and 2011's The Thing, the X-Files epi [...]


  • Five stars for a story ahead of its time. Writing quality? there are enough adverbs to sink a battleship. Poor writing typically draws harsh criticism out of me, but when I consider the multiple themes and ideas packed into this little jewel of a story, and put it into the context of its time, it is superb.



  • One of the things I noticed when the Disney version of the John Carter of Mars movie came out was that it was panned as being unoriginal or derivative, that it was too much like Buck Rogers or Flash Gordon or even Star Wars. Even those who knew it was original (it was one of the first works of science fiction, it invented the genre of planetary romance as far as I know, and was a formative work for many pioneers in science fiction and fantasy), they felt just underwhelmed by what they saw on scr [...]


  • Who Goes There? ReviewJohn W. Campbell’s “Who Goes There?” is a science fiction novella first published in 1938.Scientists stationed in Antarctica find an extraterrestrial frozen in the ice—it has been trapped in the ice for twenty million years. It made its way out of a crashed spaceship before freezing. The scientists thaw it out and havoc ensues when the creature revives and escapes. The ‘Thing’ as the alien is called, is capable of imitating living creatures, replicating humans o [...]


  • I was struck by a feeling of déjà vu while reading Who Goes There?. In retrospect this isn’t surprising, since it is a novella whose shockwaves continue to be felt throughout science fiction. John W. Campbell, Jr. elucidates this basic horror-story concept for its first, and perhaps best, iteration. Science fiction’s ties to its speculative cousin of horror are quite clear here. The ingredients are simple: an isolated research station in Antarctica; a startling discovery of a frozen alien [...]


  • A hard package to judge. This contains the novella, Who Goes There? by John Campbell and then William Nolan (writer of Logan's Run) screenplay that was never filmed. And in my brain I was running the Carpenter The Thing pretty much continuously. If you haven't rewatched that movie recently, I urge you to--it's held up amazingly well.This short story and play? Not so much. For starters, the novella is 121 pages, but very dense pages. I noticed most of the paragraphs were a page long and when ther [...]


  • “Three mad, hate-filled eyes blazed up with a living fire, bright as fresh-spilled blood, from a face ringed with a writhing, loathsome nest of worms, blue, mobile worms that crawled where hair should grow…”- from John W. Campbell’s “Who Goes There?”John W. Campbell’s novella “Who Goes There?” formed the foundation for the thrice-made movie “The Thing”. John Carpenter directed the 1982 film starring Kurt Russell and holds a significant place in my childhood memories as it w [...]
