Today’s story is from science fiction titan Philip K. Dick. It was originally published in Science Fiction Adventures Magazine in December 1953. I’d like to note that many of the understated opinions and prejudices found in this story are products of the time. The hero of the story is verbally abusive to his wife and children, and even gets physical with his kids. The fact that this story is produced by The Classic Tales does not mean that we condone these behaviors or prejudices. Parents, it might be a good chance to talk with you kids about how far we’ve come!
And now, The Hanging Stranger, by Philip K. Dick
