On Ron’s Amazing Stories we travel back to 1962 during the height of the space race. The phrase one man's junk is another's treasure plays a huge role in our story. We have a tale of fiction from Abigail that I think is quite clever and pokes fun at our gadgets. Add in a leftover Halloween story, a short one about a static shadow and a brand new helping of, Johnny Is It True? So sit back relax and enjoy the show.

Featured Story - Solomon’s Orbit

Our featured story comes from Analog Science Fiction Magazine - November 1962. It was the height of the space race where Russia and the United States were locked in a battle for outer space dominance. However, Old Man Solomon had other notions. I quote the tagline for our story: 

There will, sooner or later, be problems with "space junk," and the right to dump in space. 

The tale is called Solomon’s Orbit and was written by William Carroll.
