Nebula Awards!

Any Drabblecast fans out there members of the SFWA? If so, it's nominatin' time-- and we've got some eligible stories I believe. I think it would be cool to honor an author who ran their story with us with one of the prestigious awards for SF and fantasy. To my knowledge, here are eligible stories f...

Re: Drabblecast 259 - The Last of the O-Forms

the story asks us "What is weird? What is normal?" and shows us how the relationship changes with time, along with everything else around us. Good point. We don't need some widespread mutation-virus to keep us from displaying our "Snookie" in the carnival that is network televsi...

Re: Drabblecast 251 - The Music of Erich Zann

Erich Zann's instrument, the Viol, gave me pause for thought - Lovecraft's description of the playing caused me, at least, to picture some Paganini-like "devils music" played by a wild fiddler, but the Viol is a much more staid instrument usually played held between the knees, like a cell...

Re: MBDM 2012 R4 Necromander vs Barracade vs Mr. D'ed

Well, if the poll would let me change my vote, I'm switching the D'ed. Magic incantations take time. Anybody who's ever played D&D or some such knows this to be true. What's the way to prevent a mage from casting? Hit him! D'ed could do this, even if he wasn't light-speed. Horses are pretty qui...

Re: MBDM 2012 R4 Necromander vs Barracade vs Mr. D'ed

Here we go again! First thoughts: Necromander has no offense or defense except magic. Since magi isn't defined, if people like him he'll be all-powerful, if they don't he's weak. Barracade: "Steel scales create an impregnable body surface." It's nice to know this one can't get pregnant. M...

Flotsam and Jetsam

The man and his soot-covered mongrel walked the wasteland at dusk. Neither had eaten in days, yet onward they drifted, like meandering ash in the copper-colored sky. They hovered like flotsam; two flecks spinning in a snowglobe recently stirred. "Worlds shaken to life; worlds shaken lifeless,&q...
