Re: Drabblecast 134- Bone Sigh by Tim Pratt

I first heard this on Pseudopod and didn't really care for it then. The idea of self-multilation is not appealing to me. So I listened to the first couple of minutes and then deleted it.

I enter the chamber and start the teleportation sequence. As the timer reaches zero I hear a mosquito buzzing near my ear.

Incubus Kitten

I lay on your face in the darkness. I steal your breath as you sleep. I stalk your soul, fleeing from me through your dreams.

Janet was driving down CR672 when her headlights illuminated a kitten on the road. It ran from her car into the darkness. She pulled over, got out of her car and started to call "Here kitty kitty." She heard a tiny cry in response. Shining a flashlight into the tall grass Janet saw a tiny black and ...

Re: Drabblecast 131- Storm Comes A' Callin’ by Jeremiah Tolbert

This is probably near the top of my personal drabblecast list. I'd say that it has a lot of atmosphere but that's been done before. Besides, it's an obvious pun. But I particularly liked the music and just the laid back feeling of deep southern demi-gods. Thumbs up!

Ron Jeremey found it hard to play the straight man in the comedy film One Eyed Monster but he was up for the task in the end.

I only get 99 chars for that (spaces don't count, no matter where). Maybe use %101??
The esoteric question is whether or not the quoted whitespace acts as a character in this context.

Aliens Bearing Gifts

The aliens came bearing gifts. After giving away some free samples they introduced their product lines. There were energy generators that used no fuel and space ships and flying cars.

Perfection (retirement)

The robots didn't intend to decimate humanity. It just happened that way. It was the robotic love dolls that started it. The robots, programmed to serve humanity's every whim, made them perfect, much more so than any woman. For women they created perfect mechanical men. Why would anyone endure the f...

The policebots' new programming to shoot armed and masked persons on sight made this Halloween far deadlier than usual.
