Featured Story - Target One Our featured story comes from the OTR series X-minus One and is titled Target One. It first appeared in Galaxy Magazine and was written by Frederik Pohl. In the 1950’s science fiction was plagued with stories about moving through time.

Because of this there are two versions of the show. If you listened on the radio we had to modify the broadcast to fit our time slot. What you will find here and on all other internet outlets is the full unedited show. On the show Sylvia talks about the ghost of Chief Buffalo Child Long Lance and his appearance on the 1970s TV show Fantasy Island. I am still looking for that episode, but so far have come up empty.
