Thanks for posting that! That looks interesting.

I admit, when I went to their website I was just scanning quickly, and didn't realize part was just a list of works they had done - I thought it was a Piper/Cthulu crossover, and had this mental image of Jack Halloway crossing to the gun rack to pick up something worthy of a Mi-Go, or cultists.

Atlanta Radio Theatre Company does H. Beam Piper!

Folks,

Most of you are probably familiar with the old ~Dimension X~ and ~X Minus One~ radio adaptations of Beam "Time and Time Again" from the 1950s but much more recently the Atlanta Radio Theatre Company has been doing audio adaptations of Piper works at various conventions. There are links to recordings of their performances of "He Walked Around the Horses" and "Omnilingual" here:

http://www.artc.org/tag/h-beam-piper/

Noodling around on their site it looks like they've also done an adaptation of "Time and Time Again" and one of "Lone Star Planet," though I wasn't able to find recordings on the website.

Anyone ever seen one of these performances?
