Re: Drabblecast 416 – Necessary Cuts

This was a really great Lovecraft salute, and I liked the authors spin on where the story came from. At the time of listening to this, my own job was pretty stressful, and I too had horrific and painful words appearing everywhere, along with horrible flashbacks and dreams.

Drabblecast 416 – Necessary Cuts

Drabblecast 416 – Necessary Cuts [/u][/b] By Bryan Milller The manuscripts I read are haunted. Commas vanish forever into the void. Subjects and verbs struggle in bloody disagreement.

Re: Drabblecast 415 – The Best Scarlet Ceremony Ever!

I really enjoyed this story. Lightheart teenage angst with a touch of comming of age, set in a weird and wonderful world. It had an authentic diary feel to it, and the narration really help cement it. I remember trying to stomach and comprehend the bible stories I was feed as a child. The strict sun...

Its funny, a few weeks ago I remembered Scott (from Nocturnal), and looked him up. He is still cranking out the stories...

But there are some days, you just want to tell them to do whatever needs to be done. A great coming of age story! And as always impe...

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.
