Re: Drabblecast 198 - Love in the Pneumatic Tube Era

I just recently posted this same sentiment over on the EP boards'; the idea has merit here, and since Norm is involved with both, I think it gives me carte blanche. Besides which, two stories have recently arisen to demonstrate this point (one here and one on EP). There are times where an idea prese...

'Rangifer Volans' had a touch of it too, though the twist was a bit too out-of-the-blue to give the fu...
