We are closing in on the end of our story Anything You Can Do by Randall Garrett. With its conclusion looming Wanda Snyder from Toronto asks this question:
Hello Ron, Thank you for the podcast! I love science fiction and I am enjoying Anything You Can Do. When we took the break from it during the month of October it was all I could to stop myself from going to listen to the rest of it. Now that we are back on track I am excited about the end. What will happen after we finish the book? My vote is for more science fiction. I think it is a good fit for your show. – Wanda
Thank you, Wanda! I have been enjoying Anything You Can Do as well, and judging by the listener’s response you and I are not the only folks to know a great story. I have been looking for the next thing that we will be listening to on the podcast and to be honest I’m not sure what that will be. A lot of people love the old time radio, and a lot of you the idea of listening to a book. I do know I will be looking for more science fiction, maybe in the form of a novella. A novella is basically a shorter novel. I’ve also toyed with the idea of writing my own short stories and presenting them here. Whatever is next I promise you it will be amazing.
One of the things I am looking into is an Idea suggested to me from Mark Lopez.
Hi Ron: I love your podcast and I never miss an episode. I discovered that many of Philip K. Dick’s works are in the public domain and they are featured on LibriVox. One of my favorite stories by him is “Second Variety”. I think you and all of my fellow listeners will like it. It scared the heck out of me. Please keep up the good work. – Regards, Mark Lopez
Well, Mark, this is a strong contender for the show. It plays out in four 30 minute parts which fit the category of the novella perfectly. It was first published in Space Science Fiction in May of 1953, and is a classic Philip K. Dick story!
My question is to all of you. What do you think about this, and what do you want to hear on the podcast? I am open to all ideas and suggestions. Head to ronsamazingstories.com and leave your comment there, or better yet head to our Facebook page and let’s start a conversation there. I want this podcast to be your podcast.
My thanks to Mark and Wanda for the great questions,
