On Ron’s Amazing Stories we have a brand new listener submitted, Johnny Is It True - Pearl Harbor edition. We follow that up with two scary stories, The Red Lady Of Huntingdon, and a naked man faces a strange cryptid. Also, on the program, we continue with Part 3 of Second Variety by Philip K. Dick. So press play and enjoy!

Featured Story - Second Variety

In parts one and two, we learn 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? Are these robots now the true nemesis?  And why can’t Major Hamilton contact his home base?

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.

Ron’s Amazing Stories is produced and hosted by Ronald Hood:
