  1. Damnit!!! I wonder why this kind of things doesn’t happen in the real life. Just imagine!!! A whole new and fantastic world waiting for you in your backyard. A possibility Einstein’s equation didn’t contemplated… Well, to him: “imagination was more important than knowledge”. That’s a pulpy statement baby!!!

  2. I’m glad to see this story getting such a positive response – it’s certainly one of the most fun (in my opinion) that we’ve run. 🙂

  3. I should add that this story was suggested by a listener (and if I was 100% sure I remembered correctly who that was, I would name him!). I just proves that lots of great things in life are crowdsourced.

    Keep the suggestions coming, folks.

  4. It was over a year ago, or so when, protecting project pulp first started.Yea it was me and a long time pulp fan. So far, I love your podcast and and discover more authors to enjoy.I also subscribe to the Librivox podcast- 5 days a week of the volume they put into the feed. Sometimes boring sometimes a real treat.Also long time story listener , great short story collections and films and written word.
    enjoy and keep up with the great stories / Tony
