Re: Congratulations Cat with Blue Fur winners!

Oh, wow. I'm honored to be picked! T'was a blast, everyone, and special fistbumps to SpareInch and Lucy Jayne--I'd have been happy if either of you swept the Fantasy match. Your stories got my other votes. Great reads. :)

Re: Drabblecast 321 – The Goat Cutter

I'm really glad to hear this, Norm. :) I'll be very much looking forward to another Jay story soon, then--thank you so, so much for doing that.

Re: Drabblecast 321 – The Goat Cutter

I'm sad to say that the author of this story, Jay Lake, lost a long-running battle against cancer yesterday. He'll be very missed in the whole SFF community. I'm glad we got to hear another one of his amazing stories here at the DC before the end came. Thanks to Norm for producing this one in all it...

Re: Unsung Stories: submissions, mushrooms, brain-chips et a

Big Bad, this is AWESOME! Congrats on the startup, and I wish it much success. :-) A couple questions: what are the word count lower/upper limits? Is it novels only? And is it currently a paying market? If you can have the team update those in the submissions guidelines, I'll ask the folks at the Su...

Divine Verbs (One of a Kind Theme)

Yeah, yeah, I'm a little rusty. Let's get to the drabbling thing now! ------------------------------- Gods speak a divine tongue. Their nouns are mountains, oceans, forests, deserts. Their verbs are things that fly, swim and crawl. The goddess Love once quarreled with her sister, Hate. “Gandhi,” Lo...

Thanks, ASID! I'll be far less AWOL starting later this week, when I can finally stop treading water and get back to having a little fun now and then. :) Until then, enjoy the following Drabblecasty tidbits from my upcoming audiology exam: 1. Auditory Hallucinations simulation 2. Types of Nystagmus ...

Rock Monuments (Fate Theme)

“They’re called cairns,” Jacqui explained as they threaded their way between the rock heaps on the shore. “The hikers leave them.” Wendy marveled at the precarious physics of them: five or six large stones balanced vertically, stoic in the face of the oncoming waves. “Let’s build one.” “Why bother? ...

I'm going to pile on with the love for this story, and starting with the artwork - that shadow bending into the sewer, the streetlight reaching down like an obelisk - basically everything ASID said. Incredibly thoughtful and clever, artist!! The narrator was also outstanding. I hope Norm keeps him a...

Re: What's Your Drink?

Thanks, you guys! :D The story is "Photon Girl Ascending," and it's going to be in Penumbra's superheroes-themed issue in May. It's about superpowers and cancer and end-of-life decision-making. DC# 211- "At the End of the Hall" was a major influence when I wrote it, thematically ...
