RAS #375 – An Encounter While Biking

On Ron’s Amazing Stories we have a work of fiction sent in by Jose Munoz about a bike ride gone strange. We hear the final chapter of Second Variety by Philip K. Dick, and we have two ghost stories from you guys. Tom Williams is back with another Growing Up he calls Weekends and Old Cars. So grab a coffee and press that play button.

Featured Story – Second Variety

So far in our story, we know that the Americans have created self-replicating robots to fight the Russians for them. Also, that these robots have flipped the script and began making humanoid versions of themselves to fool their enemies. The Russians have taken many losses and are ready to work with the Americans to end the war. Is it too late? In this final chapter, we learn the truth.

The story is called Second Variety and was suggested to me by listener Mark Lopez a few months ago. It was first published in Space Science Fiction in the May of 1953 issue.

Our featured story is part two of Second Variety written by Philip K. Dick.  Also, just for fun, we visit more OTR commercials from our past.

He was killed by allied owned robots before he could deliver it. An American soldier was dispatched to check the body and to recover the note. It was a warning and a request for a high-level meeting. Major Hendricks was the closest official at hand and was sent out on his own to meet with his Russian counterpart.

RAS #372 – The Monster of Multnomah Falls

On Ron’s Amazing Stories this week we have a cryptid story that takes place in my backyard at the famous Multnomah Falls in Oregon. Also, we have a Philip K. Dick tale called Second Variety, and Tom Williams is back with a special Growing-Up story from his friend Fred.

Featured Story – Second Variety

The claws were bad enough in the first place—nasty, crawling little death-robots. But when they began to imitate their creators, it was time for the human race to make peace—if it could! – Philip K. Dick

When future war becomes so horrific that humans turn to machines and computers to design ways to kill each other strange things begin to happen.  Second Variety is a four-part story that begins today. It was first published in Space Science Fiction in May of 1953 and is read for quite expertly by Phil Chenevert.
