Episode 28: Freelanga by Jason Sanford

Posted in Drama, Jason Sanford, Science Fiction, Short Story on March 31, 2009 by dunesteef

The mavich is coming. It can’t be stopped. The only way to get away is to change who you are, through and through. That works pretty well . . . for a while.

Rish and Big talk about the Broken Mirror Story Event, and reveal the premise for the contest.  They talk about more experiences with different people having the same idea simultaneously.  Also, see if you can count how many times Big Anklevich says “That’s right,” throughout the episode.

We’d also like to thank Liz Mierzejewski and Abigail Hilton for contributing their voices to today’s episode.

Alex and his wife Sara have moved away from New York and are spending their first night in their new home.  A warm July night.  But then, why are there children trick-or-treating at their front door.  They are children, right?

Rish and Big talk about writing stories that sound an awful lot like other stories.  Also, they mention something called the Broken Mirror Event.

Special thanks to Josh Roseman, Christine Maia-Fleres, Amory Lowe, and Liz Mierzejewski for lending their voices to this show, and to Gino Moretto for today’s episode art.

Episode 26: With Mars In His Hand by Bosley Gravel

Posted in Action, Bosley Gravel, Drama, Fantasy, Romance, Science Fiction, Short Story on March 20, 2009 by dunesteef

Javi Jelcor has lost his young wife.  He can either accept it and move on with his life, or give in to despair.  But there’s a third choice: take the body to Mars, and see if the stories of resurrection are true.  What would you do?

Also, Rish and Big talk about the unusual circumstances behind this story’s ending.  Was this ending more satisfying than it might have been?  Is a writer obligated to change his ending?  Is an editor out of line to ask for changes or make them on his own?  What do you think?outtake

Posted in Abigail Hilton, Drama, Fantasy, Short Story on March 11, 2009 by dunesteef

Lexis is a prince, the child of a cruel and fearsome king.  He is destined to become the king in his father’s place.   That is, if he can survive the death duel he must fight with his brother, the other cat prince.  And now, as his father’s army is sacking and destroying an enemy city, Lexis seeks a way to outdo his brother.  There must be some way in this battle to distinguish himself.

Also, Big and Rish talk about cats and dogs, and give their opinion on which ones are better.  Warning, if you love cats, this show may offend you.

A special thanks to Ric Vinhage for helping with the editing of today’s episode.

Episode 24: OSSE, Megan’s Bridge by Amanda Crum

Posted in Amanda Crum, Drama, Horror, OSSE, Short Story on March 1, 2009 by dunesteef

It’s the second of our four October Scary Story Event finalists.

They say Megan is weird.  They say she’s an easy target.  They say she’s a witch.  They say she has no friends.  The truth is, she does have a friend.  And you shouldn’t have messed with Megan.

Also, Big and Rish talk about Dollhouse, and their least favorite TV show theme songs.
Special thanks to Liz Mierzejewski for the narration on this story as well as the illustration that goes along with it.
