On this episode we have tale that has no title, an email with no sender and a joke with no punchline. You might be thinking that this is going to be a real yawner of a show. You would be wrong and everything will be explained in the end.

Our story comes from Dimension X and is strangely titled, Untitled Story.  It was written by science fiction author Frank M. Robinson as was printed while he was in the Navy. Robinson sent the story to Astounding Science Fiction magazine expecting the editor to give it a title. Instead it was published as is “Untitled Story” in September 1950.  It was then scripted for radio in 1951 and it kept title.  Funny how things work out.  Untitled Story first aired on Dimension X on August 8, 1951.
