Episode 73: My Symantha by Doug McIntire

Posted in Doug McIntire, Horror, Mystery, Short Story on May 24, 2010 by dunesteef

Symantha didn’t come down for breakfast today. Someone else came in her place. Someone in Symantha’s clothes, acting like she does, even talking like she would. Although she claims she’s Symantha, it’s obviously just a prank. Isn’t it? bloopers

Also, Rysh and Byg talk about “The Twylyght Zone” and Iryn Myn 2.
Special thanks to Lizanne Herd and Christine Maia-Fleres for lending their voices to today’s episode.

Posted in Adventure, Cory Doctorow, Novelette, Science Fiction on May 17, 2010 by dunesteef

Continuing where we left off last week, James has traveled forward to 1975 and has no way of getting back on his own. His only hope is to leave the apartment and explore this futuristic place, finding someone who will help him get back to the world he knew.

Also, Rish and Big talk a bit about time travel, and Big pretends the production of this double-episode was no big deal. Bloopers

Broken Mirror Story Event 2010

Posted in Administrative, BMSE on May 7, 2010 by dunesteef

Between May 7th and June 7th, 2010, write a short story based on the following premise:
Story Chat
A CHILD IS PROCLAIMED KING (OR QUEEN), BUT IT TURNS OUT TO BE MORE THAN JUST A GAME.

This story can be any genre and of any length. However, our podcast usually buys Horror, Sci-Fi, and Fantasy stories, and we prefer stories longer than five hundred words.

A couple of rules:

  1. No multiple submissions, please. If you have more than one take on this idea, only send us the one you feel is best.
  2. Seriously, write the story between May 7th and June 7th, based on the idea we’ve presented. You can always rewrite an old story and present it as though it’s new, but if you do this, at least have the decency to lie about it.
  3. In the subject line of your email, mention that this is for the Broken Mirror Story Event (or the BMSE/BME).
  4. Even though the event ends on June 7th, we would rather get a complete, proofread story a couple of days late than a rushed story with typos and errors on June 5th.

Send the completed story in the body of an email to submissions(at)dunesteef.com (replacing the “at” with @. Thanks for participating and being a creative person!
