Re: Drabblecast 337 - The Only Game in Town

Hey Desmond, thanks for dropping by! It's always awesome when an author posts and yours is full of interesting stuff.

Re: Drabblecast 337 - The Only Game in Town

Desmond, you're the man. You managed to write a Lovecraft-inspired story without being soaked in Lovecraftian lore. My hat is off to you, sir. Well done indeed.

Re: Drabblecast 333 - After the Cure

I don't like Zombie Stories. Is that bad of me? Nope. They're overdone. Don't like 'em much myself. Fortunately, this wasn't a Zombie Story. It was an EX-Zombie Story. :) Exact-ic-ally, and that's why this was awesome. Kind long, but great. Don't believe I've heard anything quite like it. Although ...

Re: Drabblecast 334 - The Colour Out of Space

Dammit @bryanwitha_y, you beat me to the punch! Occasionally Norm does a longer intro like this one and they crack me up! I haven't even listened to the story yet but the whole thing is worth it just for the intro. Piñata / candy / teeth / UPS invoice from older self / etc. Magic! I still think abou...

What was the song at the end of the ep? I tried Googling the lyrics but... nothing.

The Drabblecast, he said. Strange stories, ya-da-ya-da-ya-da. I'm not THAT strange. I'll just remove my skin gloves.

Just WOW! I never heard of this guy before and I think I need to go hunt up his tales. Honestly, this one started out pretty average but when we got to the meat of it... WOW.

Re: Drabblecast 283 – The Man Who Drew Cats

I will just say: frakin' awesome. (oh, and some more words) I loved this story's slow build to a BIG conclusion that was witnessed by some folks ten years ago. As Norm said, it was about relationships and what needs to happen (maybe) to make them work. Reminded me a lot of "Sling Blade" with Billy B...

Folks, I would just like to say, thanks for producing one of my all-time-ever favourite Jack Vance stories. Honestly kids, go read all of the "Dying Earth" stories because noone ever wrote like Jack Vance. :) Now, Drabblecast. If you could just read the whole of "The Eyes of the Overworld" (aka Cuge...

As great as the main story was ( and it WAS great) I was crying with laughter over the lead-in. "There's a time and a place for raisins folks, and it's never and in the ----ing trash." "You're giving ghost handjobs every day -- that you don't even know about!" "Turtle lingerie" Honestly, best Hallow...

Re: Drabblecast 263 – Betty Flesh And The Meat Man

I loved this one. It was unexpectedly lyrical, poetic and engrossing. At first I really had no idea what was going on but it was sufficiently interesting to continue with. I then went from "oh, a match made in Heaven" to "oh. as little as that and dreams die (sob)."

Awesome.

I read this one in slush and passed it up.

Re: Drabblecast 219 - The Big Splash

Enjoyed this story very much, it has a bittersweet, end-of-an-era quality. The dog dying... well, I'm quite a dog person and that always gets to me.

Sorry for being OT there for a moment -- the new website is great ;-)
