By 1945 there were plenty of pulp stories and comic books with plots about doing away with Hitler. Today, I’m going to tell you about two of them: “Nothing But Gingerbread Left” by Henry Kuttner and “Time Column” by Malcom Jameson.

Happy listening!

The Rocketeer is the official bulletin of the Space Explorers Club. Ironic that a weekly column about pulp fiction should eventually return to radio. All the same, it seems fitting.
