Drabblecast 409: The Dandelion Man by Jack Nicholls

Drabblecast 409: The Dandelion Man [/u][/b] By Jack Nicholls Teo and Paulus stood at the shore of the pampas, where the grass grew twice as tall as a man. They were naked, and the pampero raised goosebumps on their skin. The stalks bent against the wind’s force, green and gold ripples drawing the e...

Re: Drabbleclassics 30- Doubleheader featuring Mur Lafferty (150)

I remember this one from years ago. Mur was sky rocketting in the pod sphere, and it seemed every story podcast I went to, she was there. These two stories really point out why for me. For such short pieces they have this ability to bring you into the weirdness, placing a bleek future where feral hu...

Re: Drabblecast 405 – Wet Fur

I agree with El barto on many points. For me I didn't get enough sense of the little girl who could not let her dog go from Laura. Her recall to daisy didn't really get that across. I was really interested in how the author got the story fully formed from a dream. As some who's dreams are rarely thi...

Drabblecast 405 – Wet Fur by Jeremiah Tolbert You can tell the dog owners when they board the plane. They see the black cloud hovering in the first row and their eyes widen in shock, then narrow in fear. When they see so many occupied seats, they smile. It’s a relieved smile that seems to say: “Not...

Re: Drabblecast 400 & 401- We Who Stole the Dream

This is one of the reasons that made me such a fan of the Drabblecast. Great story, amazing production, and I get exposure to an author I (ashamedly) did not know. I am always amazed when an author can pull you into a story by leveraging something from actual history, by re framing the context. The ...

Re: Drabblecast 324 – The Ball Room

This story really hit me. Not only was it well done, but I had a ball room incident when I was young. I dont remember the place, I think it was a Chuck'e Cheese knockoff. I entered the ball pit that was really deep, and got sucked in. I lost all sense of orientation. I remember trying to dig for the...

Re: Drabblecast 269 - Bright Lights

Good story, I really enjoyed the development to the conclusion. And i think it is great that the author put in a strong transgendered character, I cannot think of the last story to do so. Salutations to the author!
