H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival, Los Angeles

HPL Film Fest is this weekend and I'm wondering if any other DC listeners are going to be there? I'm really excited to be going.

Dentist stories also have one shoe already in the door when it comes to creeping us out.

or should I say, one drill already in the mouth?

Re: Pay it Forward

If I may make a suggestion for improvement, some words are repeated a few times. 'The Ferryman' is used 5 times, and I feel it would be stronger and give you a chance to suggest more about the character to use a different way to refer to him. Also, 'behind' is used twice in close conjunction in the...

Re: Another Inhabitant [Category: Truth Seeker]

With your avatar, I was reminded immediately of Hastur. But I also have to admit: drugs, motels, and The King? I think of Elvis too.

Between Elvis and Hastur, one of those associations makes me smile, and the other one terrifies me. I'm not sure which is which.

Re: Plain Sight

I love how visual this is. It almost feels like a prose poem in its imagery.

Pay it Forward

Blake pulled a Sacagawea dollar from his pocket and put it in the ferryman’s palm. Collins fished in his pockets and found nothing. The ferryman tapped his foot, waiting. “Hurry up and pay the man,” Blake said. Collins looked up sheepishly. “How much is it, exactly?” he asked. “Anything shiny will d...

Re: Drabblecast 339 - Trifecta XXVIII: Offbeat Afterlife

All three of these were great. Many kudos to D.R. Grahl, whose first sale is a damn good one. My love of Yoachim is solidified firmly after this, though. "Five Stages of Grief After the Alien Invasion" was on Clarkesworld's podcast recently, and this story was the same high quality as that one.

Re: Drabblecast 338 - The Crevasse

The timing on this is great. It was only two days ago that people started bugging me to track down The Crevasse and read it. It showing up here made me double-take in the best of ways.

Re: Drabblecast 337 - The Only Game in Town

That artwork is great. Probably my favorite of the month. The story was fun. While listening to it, I thought, "this is good, but it oddly kind of feels like a scene from the Call of Cthulhu RPG." And then the author's note at the end came, and I felt verified. Not quite as strong as The Mouth of Go...

Re: Drabblecast 336 - The Mouth of God

I was really happy with this one. I normally listen while I'm out, but I was home this time, and I read along with the text while listening. It kicked the immersion up quite a few notches, which helped, especially since the story is written in second person. And especially since I just started spend...
