Olive, the Othered Reindeer

Doomed Love - Really, kind of just for New Yorkers

She told me she was in love. He was an MTA worker. "Not the kind you see in the orange vests," she said, then hastened add. "Not that there's anything wrong with that." "Of course not," I said. "Still," she said. "I know it's never going to work. It's one of those relationships that you can see the ...

Re: Drabblecast 190 The Wheel

Is this story amazing? Yes, it is. It is ambitious and well-crafted. It calls to mind Shirley Jackson's "The Lottery," but with perhaps an even sharper ideological edge. Am I glad I got to listen to it on the Drabblecast? Yes, I am. The high production values Norm and his team are renowned for added...

Re: Drabblecast 174- The Fantasy Jumper by Will McIntosh

I'm curious whether the KKK went up against the RZA and Ghostface or actual Shaolin Monks. Either way, nice drabble.
