Re: Magneto Checks Out (Superhero Stressers)

That is brilliant! I envision a 7/11 at 2:00am. You can buy anything on credit but even a $50 bill will get you a dirty look.

The science works for me too. He manipulates metal with magnetic forces. That would be one hell of a Gaussian field! Well done.

Dimension less

The experiment had gone horribly wrong. His life’s dream had been to transport and transmute himself into a new multidimensional universe. He planned to leave this constrained 3D existence behind and enter a nearly limitless twelve dimensional paradise by surfing the chaotic inflation of the multive...

Re: Drabblecast 225 - Trifecta XIX

I only trust people as far as I can throw them… That’s why I like babies best. (LOL, you got me started.) That’s why I live by a cliff. That’s why I joined Weight watchers. That’ why I built a catapult. I’ve been working on my trust issues. Don’t let that throw you. Technology helps. Dead people are...

Re: Drabblecast 222 - Rules for Living in a Simulation

Love the concept and like the story. The only thing I would change is the length. There are so many related topics that could be covered. For example, the narrator goes on to say “In an effort to make the universe simulation less troublesome to operate and more entertaining, government budgets are b...

Re: Drabblecast 128- The End of the Universe by Eugie Foster

I started listening to this story in bed after my wife went to sleep. Usually a strange story is just the thing to disengage my mind before putting up the iPhone and drifting into dreamland. Unfortunately it had been a long day and I fell asleep early in this one. Furthermore, this was the only Drab...

Well this episode clearly hit the mark of “Strange stories”.

I am a fan of Larry Niven’s work as you may have guessed from my user name. He coined the term "rishathra" for interspecies alien sex and delved into the topic in depth. I think the realities when and if the time ever comes will be too weird to be considered. Any alien will be so "alien" that it wil...

Missing

He awoke to find her gone. Panic set in. Slowly he remembered. The squeal of tires. The crash. The hospital … the funeral.

Drabble feedback

Thank you for the kind feedback on the drabble. I expected it might lead to some discussions on the nature of the universe and the motives of God. I implied that God is just doodling and doesn’t really care about his creation or what comes next. But I am happy with it being a delightful and cute sto...

Norad

No-Rad? Nor-ad? :?

I loved the story. Yes it was predicable, but it didn’t pretend not to be. It was a well told, poignant cautionary tale.

Manatee

Manatee, Hyena, Dolphin, Scorpion, Lemming, Velociraptor The Manatee would just serve us right. We have carelessly slaughtered them to near extension with boat propellers. Their primary power should be psionics. All along they have had the ability to literally blast the minds from careless boat capt...

:shock:

As a recent contributor, I feel left out. There were some very kind comments left about my drabble, but no one criticized my work.

I wouldn’t have put it out there, if I weren’t ready for some honest feedback. Please feel free to go to the drabble cast 67 feedback and blast away.

Loved it!

:D

The production on both stories was outstanding. I am humbled and honored to have my little bit of fun produced so professionally and played as a opening act for a Mike Resnick story. Sincere thanks Norm!
