    Asleep in Armageddon by Ray Bradbury (Part One)

    "Avoid Planetoid 787. Lush and sunny, with fine
    air and no dangerous beasts, it'll tempt you to
    curve in for some nice solid-ground sleep. DON'T!"
    —Planet Stories, 1948
    This week we bring you part one of Asleep on Armageddon by Ray Bradbury. If you keep hearing voices in your head during the story...don't worry! It's just the story. However, if you keep hearing them after the story, you may want to get that checked out. Gods battling for your mind is nothing to sneeze at.
    Asleep in Armageddon was originally published in Planet Stories in 1948.
