Episode 169: TWSC – Calamari Stakeout by Austin Malone

Posted in Austin Malone, Fantasy, Short Story, TWSC on February 28, 2015 by dunesteef

CalamariStakeout

The Trench is the only waterway that a ship can take to get to the western continent. Unfortunately, there at the entrance, between the twin peaks of Seidar and Phaestia, prowls Ol’ Sly, a gigantic squid creature that would like nothing more than to crack a ship open like a jaca fruit, and pick the sailors out and eat them like the sweet seeds. Small Fry and the Admiral have a plan, though. They mean to take down Ol’ Sly once and for all, and open the western continent to their ships.

Afterward, Rish and Big try to decide what really is the worst way to wake up, live squid or porcupine covered in hair gel? Oh, and song. You have been warned.

Posted in Big Anklevich, Christmas, Fantasy, Short Story on December 25, 2014 by dunesteef

DearSantaDunesteef

Just under the wire, since there’s still a few hours left of Christmas…at least in our time zone, here’s our annual holiday spectacular.

Jaxon has written a letter to Santa Claus. He needs something a little out of the ordinary this Christmas. Will he get it? Ho, ho ho!

Afterwards, Big and Rish talk about the story, believing in Santa, and the crazy things people name their children…and their characters these days.

Special thanks to Justin Charles for producing today’s story, and to Renee Chambliss and Dave Robison for lending their voices to the tale.

I also wanted to share the alternative art that was created for the story by Justin Charles. I had already made the first art, so I stuck with it, but this one was fun enough that I wanted to show it to everyone:

The Chromatic Knights are out destroying vampires, which means that the clean up crew will have some work to do. The Blue Knight does a lot of good, but he really ought to give a thought or two to the little guy.

I’m a trombone, you’re a clarinet. Afterward, Rish and Big talk janitor work, Little Caesars, and wait…why is that light blinking? What does that blinking light mean?

Episode 165: TWSC – The Short Life And Slow Death Of Timmy Van Lowe by Bryan Lincoln

Posted in Bryan Lincoln, Fantasy, Horror, Poem, TWSC on October 9, 2014 by dunesteef

Timmy Van Lowe

An entity is pulled from its slumber, to perform its duty. What is that duty? It’s pretty distasteful. Listen to the dark poem by Bryan Lincoln that was good enough to force Big and Rish’s hand, and make them run their least favorite literary genre on their show.

Afterward, Rish and Big curse Bryan’s name, and vow to avenge the wrong he has done to them. They also praise his good looks, and flounder about pathetically while trying to interpret just what happened in the poem. Luckily, Sonny See was there to rescue them.

Special thanks to Sonny See for producing and narrating today’s story, as well as providing the episode art.

Episode 164: The Empire State Building Strikes Back by Matthew Sanborn Smith

Posted in Fantasy, Matthew Sanborn Smith, Science Fiction, Short Story on September 24, 2014 by dunesteef

THE EMPIRE STATE BUILDING STRIKES BACK COVER ART

At long last, the story that you never thought you’d hear. It’s the lostest of the lost episodes of the Dunesteef Audio Fiction Magazine.

It is the age of super science. Dr. Nefarious is on the verge of inducing the singularity and destroying the world. The only hope for humanity is Malcolm…well, he’s not the only hope, there is a plan C. Don’t look for plan B, it’s not back there.

Afterward, Big and Rish apologize profusely to Matthew, and tell the sad, twisted tale of The Empire State Building Strikes Back‘s journey to audio publication. It’s a really sad, twisted tale. And…we’re really sorry this took so long, Matthew.

Posted in Bria Burton, Fantasy, Science Fiction, Short Story, TWSC on August 28, 2014 by dunesteef

Switching

Bria Burton brings the boys some bait and a switch. When Crystal awakens in another woman’s body, she thinks she knows what she’s there for, but this switch is different than her past experiences.

Afterward, Rish and Big talk about the premise of this Triple Word Score contest winner, but can’t quite recall what show it reminds them of.

Episode 159: TWSC – In The Gloaming by A. W. Gifford

Posted in A.W. Gifford, Drama, Fantasy, Short Story, TWSC on June 4, 2014 by dunesteef

Gloaming

Sarah feels alone and empty now that both Nana and Papa Bill have both passed on and left her to wend her way through life completely on her own. Could they possibly still have something in store for her to help her be happy?

Afterwards, Rish and Big discuss gloaming, gloaming, and more gloaming. Believe me, it really becomes tedious, and I’m a fan…of gloaming that is.

Episode 157: TWSC – Surfer Dudes From Outer Space by Clay Dugger

surferdudes

Clay Dugger brings the stirring tale of one man’s search to regain the happiness of his youth…and the interesting folks he finds it with. Aw, who am I kidding, just read the title, it should be enough right?

Afterwards, Big plumbs the depths of Rish’s hate for all things surfer related. Just how deep does this twisted soul’s hate run anyway? I mean, how hateful and awful can one person be? Well, this is Rish we’re talking about, so…
