Journey #70 - Kellerman's Eye Piece by Mary Elizabeth Counselman (presented by Mind Webs)

Cyrus Kellerman orders a telescope eyepiece through the mail, only to find it discontinued. The newer model sent to him by the telescope company, however, seems to pick up more than just stars and moon craters.

Mind Webs was a 1970's series out of WHA Radio in Wisconsin that featured weekly semi-dramatized readings of science fiction short stories performed by Michael Hansen. It aired stroies by some of the genre's best writers like Norman Spinrad, Arthur C. Clarke, Gordon R. Dickson, and Ray Bradbury. Many of the readings were enhanced by music, periodic sound cues, and the occasional character voice, however they are not completely dramatized.
Mary Elizabeth Counselman was born on November 19, 1911 in Birmingham, Alabama. She began writing poetry as a child and sold her first poem at the age of six.  Ms. Counselman's work appeared in Weird Tales, Collier's, The Saturday Evening Post, Good Housekeeping, Ladies' Home Journal, and other magazines.  Counselman also worked as a reporter for The Birmingham News and taught creative writing classes at Gadsden State Junior College (now the Wallace Drive Campus of Gadsden State Community College) and at the University of Alabama.
