The Undersea Island

Two men stood in a little boat. Below them lay the undersea palace of the mighty sorceresses, whose fabled treasures no man had seen and lived. But they had a plan. "Are you sure this will work?" Asked the first. He adjusted the hem of his dress and scratched under his wig. "For the last time, yes,"...

When the stars are (nearly) right

Somewhere, a man knocks on a door. It is a twisted ruin of wet black stone: the right place. He is robed in black, with ancient names carved in his skin: the right man. The door is huge, and carved with terrible hieroglyphs. The right door. "My Lord" he cries. "Awaken! The sun is ash and the frogs s...

Erato

Erato, the muse of lyric poetry, looked down from on high and furrowed her brow. Something was not right. She plucked at her kithara in agitation. She was dissatisfied. No, more than that, she was BORED. Pentameter was past its prime. Haiku were humdrum. Villanelles were so vaudeville. Limericks wer...

Ghost Hunter

The Voodoo Queen looked at me with an expression that I recognized as pity. Her jewelry sparkled in the candlelight. The night was thick muggy, and it smelled of strange herbs. I looked from her to the beeping electronic device in hand. "It's a spectral magnetometer," I explained weakly. She nodded,...

"You don't have a license to kill!" the police captain shouted. I pulled the card out of my wallet. Everyone laughed.

Re: Drabblecast 158- Dr. Diablo Goes Through the Motions

I liked this episode. Both stories were clever tips of the hat to genre tropes, and the unspoken rules that genre fiction follows. I particularly liked Dr. Diablo's weary resignation. He knows the plan is doomed as soon as it starts, and even though he has superpowers, he's caught in the same sort o...

An Irish Twabble

"Happy Saint Patrick's Day," said the Leprechaun to the Snake. It wished that it had hands, so it could flip him the bird.

How the War Ended

When the thing fell from the sky, the whole country heard it. The rumors has spread in front of it, that the enemy had some kind of new super weapon. The giant machine landed and mowed its way through the crumbling wartime streets. It went through buildings when it could not make turns. It met no re...
