Re: Drabblecast 138: Kingdom Come by Kay Kenyon

This story was like a hot babe with a sinister streak: gorgeous imagery but with a heart of darkness. I did have to listen to the start a couple of times, but mainly because Norm's washed-out-old-man-voice lulled me to sleep. Weeeird ambient jungle dreams... Anyway, one of the best stories I've hear...
