“PRIME DIFFERENCE” (Science Fiction Short Story) #WeirdDarkness

“PRIME DIFFERENCE” (Science Fiction Short Story) #WeirdDarkness

This is a special episode with a story that we’ll be using soon in my other podcast, “Auditory Anthology” which comes out with new episodes every week (https://www.auditoryanthology.com). My partner at “Auditory Anthology”, Keith Conrad, curates stories from old sci-fi magazines, journals, books, and radio shows, and I voice the scripts. As much as I love old time radio, being able to tell these classic sci-fi stories from the 50s is a real treat for me. This story is one I actually heard many years ago on Old Time Radio, and the first time I heard it I absolutely fell in love with the story. So when I saw that Keith had sent me this one to narrate, I was beyond excited. The story is entitled “Prime Difference”, written by Alan Nourse. It was first published in Galaxy Science Fiction Magazine in June 1957. It’s dated of course, assuming android technology would be available in the late 1960s. Well it wasn’t – and it still isn’t just yet. But listen to this story and you tell me if you don’t think it’s prophetic, even if they did guess wrong on the year!

“THE TERRIFYING TRUE STORY OF ROBERT THE DOLL” and More True Horrors! #WeirdDarkness #Darkives

IN THIS EPISODE: From creepy voices to mysterious movements to strange laughter and eerie deaths, the legend of Robert the Doll outshines many cursed object stories and has been haunting people for over a hundred years, and shows no sign of slowing down. (The True Story Behind Robert The Doll) *** In Brazil, two corpses were found on a hill, dressed in matching suits with homemade lead masks draped over their eyes. (The Lead Masks Case) *** If you were to be asked who the most horrible, terrifying figure in the Bible was, you would likely say Lucifer – that is, Satan himself. But there is a figure even more terrifying – and it is God’s right-hand man in the book of Revelation. (God’s Right Hand Man) *** Horror – the stories and images seem to change with each passing year, but there was a violent shift in horror shortly after the violent reality of the “War to End All Wars”. (How Horror Changed After World War 1) *** Two sisters rebel against their depressing family life by diving into witchcraft – and soon learn it was not a wise decision. (Leftover Magic) *** In 1827, young Maria Marten slipped into a red barn to meet her secret lover. It was the last time she would be seen alive. (Murder in the Red Barn) *** Madeleine Smith had a rich fiancé, a secret lover, and one heck of a secret hot chocolate recipe. A lethal secret recipe. (The Hot Cocoa Killer) *** Was the 1971 Lloyds Bank safety deposit robbery a covert operation to retrieve compromising photos of Royalty? (The Baker Street Robbery) *** From mouths nailed shut to being buried headfirst in the ground, throughout history the fear of witches has led to extraordinary measures to keep the dead from rising from the grave.
