Re: Drabble Reviews Blog

Just Read: "Hyperion" and the "Fall of Hyperion" of which I was sparked to read after seeing someone mention it on the DC forums...so here's what I thought... This was some of the best Scifi I've been privy to in awhile... Dan Simmons was able to capture me with cantabury tales for spacers. Each of ...

Re: Drabblecast 146- Teddy Bears and Tea Parties

I've been meaning to write up something on this story alas I'm a very busy man and tonight is no different so i will keep it short and simply say: It was an amazing story, one of my very favorite thus far from the drabblecast and short fiction of the horror genre abroad. I had to wait till i finishe...

Re: Drabblecast 145- Varmits! by Steve Lowe

Re: Drabblecast 145- Varmits! by Steve Lowe

Great all and all program. Didn't really think I was going to like the main story all that much, though the language was done very nicely. As it went into the memories of band i started to dig it. Because apperently like everyone here i was also in band and the number of instruments when you start i...

Hmmm perhaps if we start enough of a ruckus we can get Norm to alienate himself from his friends and family to bring us more of this.
