On Ron’s Amazing Stories this time we head to the planet Mercury with the IFP. Ancient astronomers had long suspected that Mercury always presented the same side to the sun, though they were ignorant to the fact that the little planet also had water and air. Complete silliness of course, but not in our story. I think you are going to love this one, and meeting the Mercurians.
Featured Story - The Earthman's Burden
Our featured story comes from the pages of the pulp magazines. Specifically, the June 1931 edition of Astounding Stories. It is titled The Earthman's Burden by R.F. Starzl. It tells of Danny Olear of the Interplanetary Flying Police (IFP). There is foul play on mercury until Danny gets after his man. It is read for us by William Hahn from Sidney, Australia.
Other Stories Include - Study In Ornithology, The Egg and Other Stories by Andy Weir, and The Earthman’s Burden.
