Episode 139: The Road To Utopia Plain by Rick Kennett

Posted in Drama, Rick Kennett, Romance, Science Fiction, Short Story, Space Opera on January 24, 2013 by dunesteef

Utopia Plain

In this sequel to “The Battle of Leila the Dog,” everybody’s favorite Gartino, Cy De Gerch, returns home to Mars after nearly losing her life and her ship. But Mars is not the home she remembers . . . and her life there is not quite her own.

Afterward, Big and Rish talk about second chances and parallel timelines. With lots of irritating musical references. Be warned.

Episode 100: The Battle Of Leila The Dog by Rick Kennett

Posted in Rick Kennett, Science Fiction, Short Story, Space Opera on April 25, 2011 by dunesteef


The Dunesteef Audio Fiction Magazine marks one hundred over-long episodes with “The Battle of Leila the Dog” by Rick Kennett.

Cy De Gerch is being pestered by the sound of a whining dog…only dogs aren’t allowed on the bridge of a fighting space vessel in a war zone. What is going on?

Afterward, Big and Rish talk about . . . oh no, not about dogs again. Ghost dogs! “Where the Red Fern Grows!” Corporal Liam Tasker! This can only end badly. And it looks like Rish Outfield has opened his big mouth one time too many.

Posted in Horror, Rick Kennett, Short Story on March 14, 2011 by dunesteef

The Dunesteef is moderately sorry to bring you the first in its Lost Episode Trilogy.
Outtakes
In Rick Kennett’s “Out of the Storm” — They found the H.M.A.S. Barrinji damaged and abandoned floating out of a storm that had sunk three other ships. The Barrinji really should have sunk as well, but for some reason, she’s a lucky ship. Perhaps too lucky.

Also, Big and Rish swap boating experiences, talk about nautical jargon, ghost ships, the Australian problem, the Drabblecast, and Frood the Buffer.

Special thanks Marshal Latham for producing today’s story, and to Cameron Horsburgh, Simon Dooley, Patrick Dwyer, Dylan Boyd, Ben Maclain, and Julian Ramundi for lending their voices to today’s episode.

Episode 75: OSSE Winner, All On St. Mark’s Eve by Rick Kennett and The Day Hypnotism Died by Kevin David Anderson

Posted in Horror, Kevin Anderson, OSSE, Rick Kennett, Short Story on June 20, 2010 by dunesteef

Two stories for you this time. First the champion of last year’s October Scary Story Event, “All on St. Mark’s Eve,” tells of a town’s legend of finding out who will die in the upcoming year, and a couple all too eager to find out if someone in particular is on the list.
Then, a bonus additional story. “The Day Hypnotism Died,” recounts one particular night in the lives of four teenage boys, and the performance that would change each of them forever.

Also, Big and Rish talk about their own experiences with–and thoughts on–hypnotism.

Special thanks to Julie Hoverson, John Riendeau, and Bryan Lincoln for lending their voices to today’s episode.
