"The Tramp" was originally published in three parts in Astounding Science Fiction. Appearing
in the September, October and November issues during 1938, it is the only story in this audio
release. The action begins when a small-town sheriff shoots an escaping vagrant, Doughface Jack,
in the head. The local doctor works frantically to save Jack's life, relying on unconventional
surgery which involves sewing the two halves of Jack's brain together and replacing the top
of his skull with a silver bowl.
