Episode 225: When Thorns Are The Tips Of Trees by Jason Sanford

Posted in Fantasy, Jason Sanford, Science Fiction, Short Story on November 5, 2021 by dunesteef

It’s Jason Sanford month everybody! So put on your ugly Jason Sanford Month sweaters; make yourself a mug of The Ships Like Clouds, Risen By Their Rain tea, and gather around the table for the roast Plague Birds. It’s time to enjoy some more Jason Sanford!

Today, we have a vintage Dunesteef production of Jason’s story, When Thorns Are The Tips Of Trees, originally produced for the StarShipSofa podcast back in 2009. Miles and his father care for the local memorial grove, but the job has become a more dangerous as gangs of deteriorating thorn die, almost zombie-like people driven mad by the phage that is rewriting their DNA, have begun attacking the groves all around the area. Can they survive, or will they become thorn die themselves?

Afterward, Rish and Big talk about how much of a formative moment this story was in the history of the podcast, and look back at the production process for putting it all together.
