Unfortunately, I've gotten really tired of Mr. Eley's wanderings. He seems to be a person searching for meaning in his life. Norm, on the other hand, seems plenty comfortable with his own skin, and actively points out how silly the human condition is, and get over it and have fun.
Interesting combination. I detested "The Snow Woman's Daughter", for many of the same reasons people didn't like this story. However, I enjoyed this story and thought it was a nice break. The fact that you qualified this as not your average Drabblecast, in my mind made it just fine.normsherman wrote:About the story- I really really liked Eugie Foster's "The Snow Woman's Daughter" that Escapepod ran a while back so I actually solicited her for a story and was really taken by this one.
Interesting, how you need to warn us that a story will be "normal". I can just hear Steve Eley's voice:
"Warning! This story is not suitable for most Drabblecast listeners, due to lack of bodily functions, killer pumpkins, or enlightening concepts about the human condition."
