On Ron’s Amazing Stories this time we focus on the Diplomat in the person of Jame Reteif. Who is he? He is the main character in our featured story. A classic science fiction adventure from the pages of the pulp magazine, Worlds Of If.  Also on the show, we’ll visit the Hotel Diplomat in the Philippines and we review an audiobook titled The Short, Strange Life of Herschel Grynszpan. Truly some amazing stories.

Featured Story - The Yillian Way

Our featured story this week comes from author Keith Laumer and the pages of Worlds of If - Science Fiction January of 1962. It is the introduction of Laumer’s recurring character Jame Reteif who is a low-level diplomat. The ceremonial protocol of the “Yill” was impressive, colorful—and, in the long run, deadly! It was up to Retief to figure out how to respond to their overtures in the correct manner; all the while keeping his superiors from making a deadly mistake. The story is titled The Yillian Way.

Other Stories Include - Carnival Caper, The Short, Strange Life of Herschel Grynszpan, The Diplomat Hotel, and The Yillian Way
