WELCOME BACK, PULPATEERS! It's been several months since we launched the last new episode of Pulp-Pourri Theatre, and it's good to be back! For this episode we journey to the Red Planet for a weird sci-fi adventure that takes place both under the surface and in a completely different universe. It's called "The Eyes of Thar" and was penned by the prolific pulpster, Henry Kuttner.

Kuttner lived a short life, dying in 1958 at the age of 42, but in that time he published dozens of short stories for the pulps, 18 or more novels, and just as many stories for the Golden-Age Green Lantern comic book series. If you haven't heard of Kuttner, perhaps you've read a story published under one of 17 different pseudonyms; his contemporaries felt he'd been cheated out of his well-deserved fame, because his fans didn't know he'd written so many stories under so many names.

"The Eyes of Thar" was originally published under the Kuttner name in the Fall 1944 issue of Planet Stories. The adaptation was written by Pete Lutz in 2014 and recorded in 2016, with some pick-up lines recorded in 2017. Ms. Morizawa's introduction was recorded in 2017.

Stay tuned after the episode to hear a very special announcement for a worthy organization.
