On the podcast this time we have a full slate of amazing stories. We have three more ghost tales from listeners which include a big Texas ghost, a missing kitty, and a light switching shadow. Our featured story is a classic sci-fi adventure with time travel, intelligent rodents, and a surprise ending. We end the show with another edition ofNot So Important Times In History. So, let’s spend an hour together and hear some ofRon’s Amazing Stories.
Featured Story – The Eternal Wall
Our featured story for this week isThe Eternal Wall. It first appeared in the pages ofAmazing Stories Magazinein November of 1942. It received some critical acclaim and opened with this tagline:
A scream of brakes, the splash into icy waters, a long descent into alkaline depths … it was death. But Ned Vince lived again—a million years later!
It was written by Raymond Z. Gallun and is read for us by Greg Margarite.
I received this email from Ora Parker, who lives in Honolulu.
Hey Ron, these are strange times. I wanted to thank you for your podcast and ask a question. You play so many different types of stories and seem to know a lot about what you are presenting. How and why is that? I get it if you don’t want to answer, but please do! – Ora.
First, let me say that I am an old guy. Being around awhile exposes you to a lot of stuff. Secondly, the first time I went to college I was an English major. I took a lot of literature classes and in fact, loved every one of them. Later in life, I would audit writing and lit class just for fun. Yes, that makes me a nerd. I work as an editor now after years of working as an engineer. Both of these fields required me to do a lot of research. Think fact-checking, plagiarism checks, and general knowledge. Research is probably one of my favorite things to do. Every story that you hear on Ron’s Amazing Stories including those submitted by you guys I research as much as I can. For example; I look at the town the person is from, look at the places they mention in their story, and verify as many facts as I can. I do this in the name of the podcast, but if the truth be told I love it all. Why? Because I am a nerd.
I think this answers how and why I know about the stories. But there is one more thing to add. I love reading and telling stories to people. I may not be an expert in everything I share, but I do that best I can to make sure I get it right. Thank you for your question Ora.

I don’t have to tell you about what is going on in the world, we all know about, read about, and hear about it all day. I am not an expert and if you want to know the truth I really don’t want to be. I believe that it is my job to do what they tell me and hunker down. But that doesn’t mean I don’t have a way to support you. That is why when you listen to the podcast you won’t hear me talking about the virus or even try to make sense of it all. I will just keep doing my job of presenting stories to take you away from today.
This week’s podcast is titled The Ghost Story. If you remember we have had Bigfoot Week, The Dogman Story, The Chupacabra Story, and The Thunderbird Story. A few weeks ago I asked for your ghost stories for an upcoming show with Alton Chung. You came through in a big way and I have extras. This week we will use a few of those and have another edition of Ghost Stories with Sylvia. It should be a real spooky time!
So, please join me this week and tell your friends if they want and escape to join us as well. My very best to you and your family. Stay safe and healthy during these trying times.
