Re: Drabblecast 181- Funeral Song for a Ventriloquist

Hey! I thought Lovecraft month was over. I had always believed ventriloquists had multiple personalities and the puppets/dummies were their way of channeling their problems, but this is an awesome twist on that way of thinking. Amazingly creepy and more than once sent a shiver down my spine. The mor...

Re: Drabblecast 152- Trifecta XI

WOOHOO! Triple bill today on Anthropomorphic Theatre! Yay! Generally speaking, I enjoyed listening to all three stories. "The Existential Lizard" was very enjoyable, albeit a trifle predictable. Archie was quickly made as particularly loathsome. I wish I could have been more sympathetic toward Maeve...

Re: Drabblecast 151- The Society of Eccentric Moustaches

As the owner and tender of a Reynolds-esque mustache for the past two decades, I now run the risk of liberation from the marital condition if I shave. This was a drastic change of mood from what we've had during the past two or three weeks and a happily entertaining. One thing that hasn't changed is...

Re: "Best Story" Finals! Vote Here

Maybe Norm can pitch an amalgam of the two current leading stories to the networks. Call it "BP and the Bears." It might make for a decent TV series, no? Maybe if they used a Teamsters theme and employed at least one buxom young starlet with acting skills equal to Babel's physical dimensions...call ...

Re: Drabblecast 150- Morris and the Machine by Tim Pratt

I agree with Dreamrock. Quantum travel through the multiverse makes more sense than moving forward or backward along a linear path (worked wonderfully in Babel Probe, though). I have to admit to taking the wife's side on this one. As an inventor, he created for the future but in the end, existed onl...

Re: "Best Story" Finals! Vote Here

I felt the triumph of the Babel Probe, the shame of Awesome Dinosaurs, the bloodlust of hatchling Clowns, the realization of Annabelle and the bottomless hunger of Teddy Bears. I truly loved Babel Probe and would have chosen it, but I absolutely love stories that leave me hanging, not being able to ...

Re: Tie Breaker

I had to go with "Pumpkin." It's the perfect melding of beloved childhood memories and childhood horrors.

That big ole grin on the kite-eating tree gave me nightmares for weeks!
