Re: podcasts

Perhaps some bizarre side-effect of the nuclear blast has caused their consciousnesses to be momentarily preserved in the ionized air of the beach and the people who disappeared really did just disappear into nothing? . Man, I hadn't considered that. What a neat idea. Almost like Dr. Manhattan in W...

These stories had great mouth feel. I especially loved the first drabble.

OK, so not the best DC ever. I guess Norm was in a hurry. By the way, my cougar will NOT be at the Con, thank you very much.

BTW, did anyone catch the owl call in Warmth of the Sun - after the line that ends "judgemental hoot"? It was a loon call. Great stuff. I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed. Great trifecta! I really enjoyed this set of stories: Kisses - Ick. Reminds of something I read once in Clive Barker's "...

I thought the story got off to a good start, but stopped just when I thought something was going to happen. I was convinced that Steve was about to be eaten by the paper-maiche arachna-squid. Instead, the sculptures burn meekly and the story is over. :shock: ??? The Bardle, by the way, was excellent.

I have to agree with Adam. Steve and Norm and doing very different things with their intros, but I do enjoy both. Norm's intros are great, half the fun of the show.

OK, so Cammo beat me to all my punches. I liked this one, but I don't think I'd like to hear folk stories every week on the DC. I would miss the poo stories (not Pooh). Now, if Mr. Sherman started another 'cast....
Also, Mr. T's comment was very insightful.

I enjoyed this story. It definatley had a weird, surreal vibe to it, and I was able to catch the metaphor. Good stuff.

Other possibilities on his distaste for the music: Key parts of the flute's musical range fall within the "blind spot" of the aliens' hearing (though that seems less likely, since it seems that they do percieve that sound, just not in any way they recognize as hearing) That was my guess as well, bu...

I don't know if Alastair Reynolds was an influence, but the crimson sea reminds me of his Pattern Jugglers. These are sentient oceans in which all the trillions of microorganisms in the water are collectively sentient, creating a slow and ancient mind as large as the ocean itself. A way to achieve ...

Not much to add that hasn't been said already. Great story, and I loved the song at the end! Norm will have to issue a "Best Songs of The Drabblecast" CD before too much longer.

Headroom was OK, if forgettable. Performance Anxiety. I figured out about half way in what was going on. I'll agree with Derm on this one: Just about as much as I could handle of that. The build-up was just a bit heavy. Chi- Wow, great story! The imagery was really powerful. I had to re-listen to th...

I thought the feature story was pretty funny. It usualy brings a chuckle to see the conventions of the fantasy genre examined through the lens of real life common sense.

Fun story! I get the idea that the author is trying to make a point, but I feel like I'm missing it. Incidently, the worms might prefer young humans for the same reason we prefer small, young fish: as an animal gets older, it's body accumulates persistant toxins from it's environment, spoiling the t...

"Dragonpage - Cover to Cover" - Kind of a Fantasy/Sci-Fi lit news show. They interview authors, do book reviews, anounce up-coming releases, lots of things. Plus, they usually do two shows a week, which is always nice. "Kick-Ass Mystic Ninjas" - Same folks as the above. They discuss classic scifi/fa...

Fun story!
Great read from Norm, as usual. Loved the accents.
I haven't heard/read anything from Saki before. I may look into it. Strikes me as a cross between Mark Twain and Rudyard Kipling? Anyone more familiar, please feel free to set me straight.
