RAS #555 – Old And New

On Ron’s Amazing stories we present episode #555. This is one of those numbers that seem like a milestone to me. I have titled it Old And New. What I have done is taken stuff from old shows and gave them a face lift. I also created some new stuff like the story of the infamous Tunguska event in Siberia. I think you’re going to like it. So, press that play button and let’s find out.

Featured Story – Into Space

Into Space

Our featured story comes from the second issue of the classic science fiction pulp magazine, Astounding Stories of Super-Science. The tale is called Into Space, and appeared in issue 2 which was published in February, 1930. It is the story of man’s first satellite in space. Which, for the record, was totally unintentional. This is an amazing story and is read for us by Steven Bateman from Librivox.org.

Other Stories Include – Signal block, The Old Man, A Cleaning Horror, Reflections Of Me, The Swamp Orb, The infamous Tunguska, and Into Space.

These Are Your Stories #65 – Angel In New York

Our story comes from home. Literally and figuratively. It was written by Yvonne originally from Minnesota. Yvonne is not the name I associate with her. You see I have always called her Mom. My mom is 96 years-old. Here is her story about her dad and mom.

Grandpa Redal

The year was 1971. My dad was a retired pastor when this story occurred. Retired, is just a word as far as he was concerned. Instead of relaxing to a simple lifestyle he became the pastor for congregations who were either waiting to find a replacement or theirs were incapacitated in some way. In fact, he had recently returned from one in Arizona where he had served for six months. That’s hard work for a retired man.

He and my mom were planning to move to Hudson, New York. He would become the pastor of a congregation there for who knows how long. I was totally against it. He was quite ill, and walking was almost impossible. However, he insisted. The furniture they needed had already been sent! So, I took them to the train where they would move across the country from Washington State to New York. The picture of them leaving is a memory I will never forget! Mom was wrestling with two suitcases, and dad was carrying a small box. I always wondered what was in that box, probably only his cigars. He did like his cigars!

When they arrived in New York they knew they had to get to the airport to take a plane to Hudson. They thought that there would be a bus provided but the girl at the desk said it would be up to them. She pointed to a glass door where they could get a taxi. They headed out and saw hundreds of taxis and thousands of people all looking for a ride. 

”How are we ever going to get one of those taxis?”, Mom said as she dragged the suitcases outside. 

Dad still hung on to that little box. All of a sudden two young men came to where they were standing, “We will take care of you,” they said.  

One of the men picked up the suitcases and the other man took dad’s arm. They brought them to a place where there was only one taxi waiting and it all was quiet. The man helped dad into the back seat and the other took care of the suitcases. Mom turned to thank those young men, but they were not to be found, anywhere! She looked up and down the street and saw nothing except taxis and people getting in them. Where were the young men?

My mom always said they were angels sent to aid them in a very tough time. They did arrive in Hudson and my dad took over the church. It would be his last, because he would pass away a few months later.  He is buried in Hudson NY and my mom returned to Washington State to live out the rest of her days.  – Yvonne Redal – Minnesota

I have heard this story many times. It always boggles my mind each time it gets told. I had the pleasure of hearing my grandmother tell it and to me it only reminds how simple life can be if we let it. After all, the birds of the fields get taken care of everyday. Who do you think does that?

Spotlight – Grave Deeds and Dead Plots

On the podcast this week we will have a special Ghost Stories With Sylvia. Sylvia and I will be discussing her brand new book Grave Deeds and Dead Plots. It is the first volume of an exciting new series. These collections of ghost stories feature spine-tingling tales of true crime … with ghosts added. Each story is a tale of murder, passion, or cold-blooded killing—and each case has resulted in an eerie haunting.

I have had the chance to read this book and I can tell you there are stories that will blow your mind. Did you think that you knew it all about the Hamilton and Burr conflict? Sylvia tells a whole new chapter of that amazing saga. Or how about the early days of Abraham Lincoln and his encounter with cold blood killer Isaac Wyatt. You might want to leave the lights on for the story at The Haunted Crossroads where Tom Otter meets his maker in a most hideous way. These are just a few of 30 stories found in Sylvia’s new work.

This book reads like a dream and you can binge it or enjoy it at your leisure. Sylvia has taken the time to fully research each story and gives you the facts. But not in a cold dry manner. No, each story is told with passion and you will feel it deep in your bones.

So on the podcast this week we will talk about this amazing book. You can listen to us, this Thursday, at Ron’s Amazing Stories, download it from Apple Podcasts, stream it on Stitcher Radio or on the mobile version of Spotify. Do you prefer the radio? We are heard every Thursday at 10:00 pm and Sunday Night at 11:00 PM (EST) on AMFM247.COM. Check your local listing or find the station closest to you at this link

Grave Deeds and Dead Plots:

You can find the book on Amazon, of course, but you might also want to try Bookshop.org. When you order from Bookshop.org, part of your money goes to support independent bookstores, which is amazing.

Also, on the show, we review the audiobook collection The Chronicles Of Narnia, and I answer a question from Packer5214 that I have been waiting for someone to ask! So press that play button and let’s get started.

Featured Story – Hell’s Dimension

Our featured story comes from the April, 1931 edition of Astounding Magazine. I am constantly amazed at the stories they presented in the early years of this pulp mag and science fiction in general. This story truly is astounding in every way. Professor Lambert, deliberately ventures into a vibrational dimension to join his trapped fiancée. Do they escape? You’ll find out in the story titled Hell’s Dimension. It was written by Tom Curry and is read for us by Michael Harris.
