Creature is the first Drabblecast I ever listened to and would recommend it to anyone that can appreciate a beautifully written dark story. Makes me want to fold into myself and move under the ocean to get away from all the 'humans.'

My average rating for the year is 79.145
I scored Creature at 83
IOW, I agree that Creature is very good, and believe you have some happy listening times to look forward to. :D

That IQ is a little below average, but I guess we always knew you were special. Thanks for sharing!

About damned time.

Either "Creature" was the first Drabblecast I ever listened to or it was so good that I've forgotten whatever I heard before it. It was the magical door to a whole new world of fiction for me, and it will always have a special place in my heart. And the production is just amazing.

I don't think I'd heard this story before. Love. Love. And the reading. Love.

This may be my favorite Drabblecast. Norm did a fantastic job (as usual) conveying creature's primeval, violent innocence and compassion. Also really enjoyed Jimmy's Roadside Cafe by Ramsey Shehadeh; that heartbreaking compassion is evident in both stories.
