283 (audio | forum) The Man Who Drew Cats by Michael Marshall Smith
Old Tom was a very tall man. He was so tall he didn’t even have a nickname for it. Ned Black, who was at least a head shorter, had been ‘Tower Block’ since the sixth grade, and Jack, the owner of the Hog’s Head Bar, had a sign up over the door saying ‘Mind Your Head, Ned’. But Tom was just Tom. …


295 (audio | forum) Twenty Ways the Desert Could Kill You by Sarah Pinkster

This romantic comedy begins where all low-budget ’50s creature-features ended: The mutant insects born of atom-bomb radiation (or invaders from space, or monsters from the sea, or fifty-foot women) have at last been defeated and our small-town hero, with girlfriend Janie or June or Betty at his side, must now face the rest of his life. …

I admit it. I usually bitch about some of the finalists being too depressing. But not this year, this was a real quality crop of stories. Great work Drabblecast!
