RAS #425 - Beyond Lies The Wub

On Ron’s Amazing Stories this time we feature a crazy pig that can read your mind and much more. We have three listener stories that include a time-traveling wood carving, a forest rangers story, and a strange encounter at Big Bear Rock. Johnny Is It True is back with a brand new segment and we end the show with dinosaurs. 

Featured Story – Beyond Lies The Wub

Our story for this week is one of my favorites from the classic pulp mags of the 1950s. It is called Beyond Lies the Wub and is a science fiction short story written by Philip K. Dick. This was his first published story, originally appearing in Planet Stories in July of 1952. The tale follows a crew of Earthmen who have sent a ship to bring Martian goods back to Earth. While on Mars, one of the crew members buys a creature for what he considers to be a ridiculously low price. The Martian natives call this creature a wub. When the Captain decides to kill and eat it the wub speaks up to voice its disagreement.
