Re: Drabblecast 138: Kingdom Come by Kay Kenyon

I agree with Mr. Tweedy that the inevitable, timeless Jungle-machine idea presented here is both scary and Lovecrafty. I also agree with strawman that I'm glad the story shunned messagy environmental stuff that would have detracted from the main focus (I was worried even from the cover before listen...

Re: Drabblecast 139- Let Us Now Praise Awesome Dinosaurs

Best short fiction story and audio production on the internet, hands down IMO. I thought this was just extrodinarily cute, hilarious, exciting and insightful. Everything was top-notch about this, a keeper on ipod playlists everywhere no doubt. How funny to have Earl Newton from Stranger Things play ...

Re: Drabblecast 138: Kingdom Come by Kay Kenyon

I predict this one'll be in the drabblecast people's choice award top 5 finalists this year, along with Babel Probe(obviosly) and one of those Tim Pratt stories. Really loved it, fantastic writing and wonderful imagery. Like phenopath, it makes me want to read more about the larger context this post...

Re: Drabblecast 137- Doubleheader V: Igor Teper

Good stories! Kim-Norm interplay seemed really natural, like recorded live. They must send clips though, so good job.
Quantum was a funny scam- maybe next year's nigerian spam email contest?

Re: Drabblecast 136- The Great Old Pumpkin by John Aegard

Yes congrats to both Kevin and Ayn. Sad to not have a story by Mr. Anderson this year, but Ayn's Drabble was certainly swell. One of my favorite all-time drabbles, if anything just for the title. :-) Cryptkeeper Norm's terrible but oh-so-tales-from-the-crypt horror puns cracks me up every year. The ...

This is the guy who coined the phrase "Don't let the cat out of the bag.... because this is a Dentist's office, and that's the last thing we need running around here."

Re: Drabblecast 134- Bone Sigh by Tim Pratt

That Choadsworth rant will go down in history as maybe the hardest I've ever laughed during this show. "Stop acting like a bashful camel intestine smothered in glossy lipstick and start acting like a libidinous, underage annelid looking for a g**damn father figure!" Money. Loved the twist too. I sho...

Re: Drabblecast 133- Over the Walls of Eden by Jay Lake

But that's why his degeneration and adopting of her name at the end was cool to me. That's all Emissary has become-- an enabling power. Just my interpretation. And the fact that the name he takes was most likely not the girl's real name either, just the author she remembered, emphasised how far he ...

Re: Drabblecast 132- Doubleheader IV: from Bruce Holland Rogers

Looking back through the past 20-30 episodes, I can honestly say there hasn't been a single story that I haven't been thoroughly entertained by. I think it might go back even farther than that. Just giving props to the editors here (Norm and Connor of course deserve all they are already getting.) I ...

Re: Drabblecast 132- Doubleheader IV: from Bruce Holland Rogers

Wonderful work by Bruce Holland Rogers. I liked how connected the two stories were with the "walk a mile in my shoes" theme Norm pointed out. Baker's Dozen just verged on cheesy, but didn't. And the result of that experience is teary eyed start of a happy day . Wrong Cart was wonderful. Such a fun c...

Re: Drabblecast 127- Nanuq by John Kratman

That was cool. I liked it better than Harry the Crow. I can see the editors reading this story up to the polar bear fight scene and then just tossing it in the yes pile without even finishing it. :-)
Lucky for them the ending was the best part.

Well, if there was any doubt about Norm's production chops being on par with big studio talent, their gone now. I really liked the story but couldn't help feeling heavy sci-fi movie dejavu. Not from any one particular (well, maybe Event Horizon), but more from all of them. Am I the only one who felt...

Ah, a classic Drabblecast story with a twist ending. It's been awhile! This one fooled me too and I loved it.
Also, interesting question raised above, maybe the mother was a robot too?? Could have been a cool double twist.

That was AWESOME! Well deserved Norm's plugging from the main feed. I loved how it didn't become about the monster, like typical Benchley Jaws and Beast, but about the mystery of the monster. To me, this really is one of my favorite Lovecraft stories now. I think he could have cut some of the "swayi...

Yah, I've never been a huge Lovecraft fan.
