I got lost in some of the jargon in this one - golden age SF? Huh? I'm not a fan of short stories either. If I really like a story, I want it to be at least novel length.

I must admit quite a lot of this left me in the dust. so I just made up answers.. I hate short stories it's like the author was to lazy to finish it.
