  2. Fire, Burn by John Dickson Carr

    An historical mystery novel about a police officer who is transported back in time to 1829 when the British police was first formed. Carr considered this one of his best impossible crime novels.

    This is the story of an impossible crime, affecting a woman; and of an impossible situation, affecting a man.

  3. Peepolykus’ “The Hound Of The Baskervilles”

    A comic adaptation of the Sherlock Holmes classic. The story is all there and follows the plot, but includes a Spanish Holmes, a Baskerville who cannot do a Canadian accent, a particularly stupid Dr Watson who frets if not fed, "lamb in a bag" and a few other adaptations, which put a comic spin on this classic tale.

  7. Oliver Sacks: A Neurologist At The ‘Intersection Of Fact And Fable’

    In a 1985 interview, Sacks told Gross that watching the patients emerge from the catatonic state was like standing at "the intersection of fact and fable. You see infinitely moving, dramatic, romantic situations, but also clearly based on the state of the nervous system."

    Fresh Air remembers Sacks with two interviews from 1985 and 2012.

  8. Author, Author

    There were a lot of quiz shows on old-time radio, but none were quite like Author, Author. Famous authors, led by Ellery Queen, had to create a story that made sense out of a nonsense situation that was thrown at them. Ellery Queen was really two people - a pair of cousins named Manfred Lee and Frederic Dannay. This is the pilot episode, and the host here is humorist-poet Ogden Nash. When the show was picked up for the regular schedule three months later, the host was humorist S.J. Perelman.

    This pilot episode, The $2,001 Watch, was originally broadcast on January 4, 1939.
