RAS #490 – Seller Of The Sky

On Ron’s Amazing Stories we present a brand new segment called Paranormal Expeditions. I think you are going to like the concept and I look forward to hearing your feedback. Also, on the show Mitchell tells us a few stories from Selma, Ca, and we feature a classic sci-fi story from the pulp mags that really relates to our world today. 

Featured Story – Seller Of The Sky

Our featured story comes from the Worlds of If Science Fiction, February 1955. It is titled Seller of the Sky and was written by Dave Dryfoos. No one took Old Arch seriously; he was just an ancient, broken-down wanderer who went about seeking alms and spreading tales of the great Outside. The children were curious and believing. However, the adults were cynical and doubting. 

Other Stories Include: Remedy For Murder, Rivals! Frenemies Who Changed the World, The Good Witch in the Wizard Of Oz, My Father’s Shoes, My Little Angel, Paranormal Expeditions – May/Stringer House, and Seller Of The Sky

Program Links: On the show, Mitchell shared a link to a spooky song from the sixties called The Ghost of Beardsley Road. You can find it HERE. Also, on Paranormal Expeditions Emma shared her experiences at the May/Stringer House. You can read more about it or book a ghost tour HERE

Then we head to your stories where we have four amazing tales that come from Texas, Oklahoma, Nevada, and California. Our featured story comes from the OTR classic series X-minus One and it looks at some strange lights in the Big Horn Glacier! We will end the show with a few OTR commercials based on some of our favorite breakfast cereals.

Featured Story – The Lights Of Precipice Peak

Our featured story this time comes from the OTR series X-Minus One. The story takes place in a mountainous region known as Bighorn Glacier. It is an odd tale that looks at what aliens from another world could be like. It was first published in the October 1955 edition of Galaxy Magazine. It is titled The Lights Of Precipice Peak and it aired on X-minus One on March 13, 1957.

Other Stories Include:  The UFO Battle at Nuremberg, A Case Of Oversight, Alien Encounters, I Wish I had, Bigfoot is an Alien, The UFO incident, Ron It happened again, and The Lights Of Precipice Peak

RAS #488 – Ghost Story Throwdown

On Ron’s Amazing Stories this time Sylvia and I have a good old-fashioned showdown! Which of us can tell if the other has faked them out? We call this the Ghost Story Throwdown 2021. Also on the show is a shadow story from Madison, NC that just might be creepiest yet. You will have to decide that yourself. It is titled That Shadow Shot Me.

In Episode RAS #485 – Dagger Heart Station we presented a story from the OTR series Buck Rogers. I asked for your feedback on this one via a poll. That poll is now closed and I want to thank all of you that took a moment to respond. Of the people that responded 70% of you made it pretty clear that Buck Rogers was not a fan favorite. 7% of you don’t ever want to hear from Buck again. That is good enough for me. Here is the link to the results. Thank you!

Stories Include:  Mail Order Murder, Upon Reflection by Sting, That Shadow Shot Me, Ron’s UFO incident, The Singing Ghost of Joliet Prison, The Ghost At The Calumet Theatre, The Bryant Road  Soldier, The Ghost Dog Of Putman County, The Cigar Smoking Nun, and The Polergiest’s Milk Jug

RAS #487 – The Country Tavern

On Ron’s Amazing Stories this time we have ghost stories and spend some time in space being afraid of The Nothing. If that doesn’t make any sense …It will later on. We have an epic story from James that follows a haunting in a restaurant in New Hampshire. This one is so good that I titled the podcast after it. The Country Tavern.

Featured Story – The Nothing

Our featured story for this week is so good. When man first went into space there was a real concern about what we would find out there. But did they really think about what would happen if they found nothing? That is what our story is about and it is titled The Nothing. It was written by Tom Godwin, and is read by Mark Nelson

Other Stories Include By Any Other Name, IRobot, The Country Tavern, The Shadow Man Likes His Sheets, I Swear It Took Our Sheets, and Johnny Is It True – Strange Stuff.

RAS #486 – Dead Man’s Planet

On Ron’s Amazing Stories we have a Near Death Experience from Chad and a story from Darren that just might have you believing in the paranormal (or least wanting a shave and a haircut). Our featured story is engaging to say the least. It is about a dog, a boy, and an event that occurred 800 years ago. The cool part is that it is read for us by our old friend Mark Nelson. I think you are going to like it. We end the program with a history lesson from ancient Egypt circa 1152bc. So, press the play button and enjoy the show.

Featured Story – Dead Man’s Planet

Dead Man's Planet

Our featured story is captivating. It first appeared in Galaxy Science Fiction in February of 1955. It is not like anything we have had before on the podcast. It presents a picture of the future that probably represents what space travel and planet-hopping will be like. It was written by William Morrison and is read for us by Mark Nelson.  The story is titled Dead Man’s Planet.

When a driven man arrives at a cemetery world,
what else can it be but the journey’s end or
the start of a new one?
