Hey, I just read the stories. :-)

Any cute pics of Clara that we could melt over yet? Feel free to share (unless you'd rather not have them one click away from pics of the Octo-child or Tree-man, which is understandable)

Haha- wow, that's actually a hilarious idea. I'll run it by the crew.

As for the story, I enjoyed the suddeness with which the pimple began to take a humanoid appearance. It was like BLAM! I think we've all had a memorable cyst experience, but perhaps not viewed it so maternally.

Haha, well I am from Georgia. I thought it was alluded in a super subtle way that she was at mental home. At the end she sat on the porch- a "different porch"- playing with her buttons.

whoa, totally different take on the story than I had Tweedy. I'll have to go back and listen again with your interpretation in mind. I hadn't considered that the narrator might be from an advanced human race- I definately thought it was an alien narrator- like he was making a soliloquy relaying all ...

Yeah, this is one of my favorite stories we've gotten. It was pretty heavy for the first half before it started getting gross and tragic. I liked the end, with the aliens having to "adapt to be able to live with themselves", - implies that even beings, no matter how advanced or "moral" they think th...

tBaker I agree with your remarks about short fiction- I think we will be doing more shorter work- expecially drabbles, because of all the feedback like yours we've gotten. Feel free to say what you liked or disliked about the stories though, these are discussion forums! I think Escapepod is a great ...

Let's just say that while the Black and White animals trilogy may never win a Parsec award, it would be all over the "Worst puns in podcasting" award...if there were one.

Huh, I had the opposite reaction Tweedy- I liked all 3 but Pork/SteakEye was my favorite and Witness my least. It's maybe just because I kept annoying myself with the robot voice when I was trying to read it- I had to take a more human/butler approach to be able to stand it. I liked Wiggin's when I ...

Yah, "parasitic twin" is a weird phrase that always conjures up nightmares of waking up one morning to find a lamprey-like me affixed to my stomach through some sort of circular suction mouth.
Thanks for sending in the news ayn!

I have thought of other possible final lines that would have worked for this story- not just about the end being a joke. There are endings that might have said more about what the author was presenting on guilt. What if Brian just dropped the monkey in a trash can on his way out- like Luke said? Wou...

Hehe thanks. This one distracted me a bit too much from the necessary tediums of life and I'm still trying to catch up.
Glad people enjoyed though.

I especially liked the Drabble- What's the title Kevin, is that a figure of speech I've never heard?
