Last Week on MangoBot: Yellow Peril Science Fiction

1996finnishvidrelease_01_2 Last week on MangoBot, I wrote about the history of yellow peril science fiction and the role of Asians in present-day science fiction.

Back in the 1920s and 30s, when Asian immigration to the US and Europe
was picking up steam, prominent science fiction writers like Philip
Nowlan and H.P. Lovecraft created speculative scenarios starring
massive hordes of horrible, slanty-eyed, intelligent Asians who were
either taking over or destroying the world.
