Rador. Rador was created by John Coleman and Hulbert Burroughs and appeared in “The Man Without a World” (Thrilling Wonder Stories, June 1939) and “The Lightning Men” (Thrilling Wonder Stories, Feb. 1940).

The Arkadia is the “great Ark of Space which had been hurtling through the Universe for approximately one hundred and ninety-five years. The oncoming generations had lost all interest in the dry history of nations and of individual men prior to the Great Exodus.” All but Rador, the Ark’s “elderly engineer-astronomer,” who sees to it that the generation ship functions normally, despite a plague of space-rodent “weasarks,” and then lands safely on Nova Terra, humanity’s new home.
