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

Posted in Bryan Lincoln, Fantasy, Horror, Poem 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.

Special thanks to Renee Chambliss, Marshal Latham, Dave Thompson “Podcastle Enforcer”, L. Scribe Harris, and Tom Tancredi for lending their voices to the episode, and to Sonny See for providing the episode art.

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.

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…
