Episode 137: Todd Elrin And The Forever Reset by Jonathan C. Gillespie

Posted in Action, Jonathan C. Gillespie, Science Fiction, Short Story on November 26, 2012 by dunesteef

It’s the last day of the year, and it’s time for Todd Elrin to leave his current location, and start the year over somewhere else, as he has done many times this particular calendar year. But an angry visitor from the future has other plans.

Afterward, Big and Rish sing about Jonathan C. Gillespie, and ruminate about the similarities between this story and another, and the differences one man can make in one’s life. Hopefully no hate letters will be necessary after this one.

Special thanks to Tanja Milojevic for producing today’s story and lending her voice to the tale, and to Gino Moretto for providing the episode art.

Episode 136: CHEMO: The Pieces Of Erica Smith by J.M. Perkins

Posted in Action, Horror, J.M. Perkins, Science Fiction, Short Story on October 29, 2012 by dunesteef


It’s only been two months since Agent Joseph faced masses of zombies while locked inside of a prison. Now, he has a new mission. This one is so big that half of all CHEMO is being mobilized. They have to destroy every last piece of the immortal cell line that spawned out of a tumor grown on a woman named Erica Smith.

Afterwards, Big and Rish talk CHEMO, get a lot of text messages, and giggle far more than is professionally acceptable. Beware, there’s probably something offensive in all of that…we’re not sure what, but we’re pretty sure it’s there.

Special thanks to Wendy Cooper for producing today’s story, and to Clay Dugger for lending his voice to today’s episode.

Episode 130: The Lady Swordmaster by Brock L. Noel

Posted in Action, Adventure, Brock L. Noel, Comedy, Fantasy, Short Story on June 17, 2012 by dunesteef


Remel is one of the greatest swordsmen in the land. He definitely would be the greatest, but he has a few challenges that stand in his way…especially today, and with an invading force sacking the city, what will he do?

Afterward, Big and Rish say silly things. Most of the really heavy, depressing stuff has been cut out of this episode, so while it might still be offensive, it’s sure to be fun.

Special thanks to SonnySee for producing today’s story, also to Bryan Lincoln, Dan Lynch, DesiaB, Rob Haines, Josh Roseman, Damon Shaw, Wendy Cooper, Scott Pigg, and SonnySee for lending their voices to today’s episode.

An AI has turned rogue, and will stop at nothing to achieve its goal, including murdering a child or even a Plague Bird! Find out what happens next in the thrilling conclusion…

Episode 125: The Ever-Dreaming Verdict Of Plagues (Part 1) by Jason Sanford

Posted in Action, Jason Sanford, Novelette, Science Fiction on February 27, 2012 by dunesteef


In a sequel to his story “Plague Birds” that appeared on the Dunesteef on episode 92, Jason Sanford tells the story of Plague Bird Christina de Ane’s further adventures in the future earth that has been driven toward the brink of insanity by gene manipulation. She arrives in a new village, where the Alderman’s son has been brutally murdered, and is duty bound to dispense justice. But something just doesn’t seem right…outtakes

Also, Big and Rish talk about how much better The Dark Knight is than its predecessor Batman Begins. They also talk about how much better Star Trek: The Wrath Of Khan is than its predecessor Star Trek: The Motion Picture. And that’s before the story even begins. You’d think we were in for a long show, but surprisingly, they reign it in after the story ends. You may not be searching for a way to deafen yourself by the end of the show after all.

Special thanks to Bryan Lincoln for producing today’s story, to L. “Scribe” Harris, Veronica Belmont, Paul Kuhr, James David Jackson, and Bryan Lincoln for lending their voices to today’s episode, and to Melissa Hills and Atom Jarvis for today’s episode art.

Episode 107: Must Have Own Weapons by Edward McKeown

Posted in Action, Adventure, Edward McKeown, Science Fiction, Short Story on July 24, 2011 by dunesteef


When the wombat comes, he’ll find me gone.
Outtakes
Dan Coulter has lost his girlfriend, and cannot find anything to look forward to in life any further. He’s considering putting an end to it once and for all. At that moment, with gun in hand, he sees a rather unusual want ad. The only caveat? Whoever responds to this ad must be able to bring their own weapons. Well, at least Dan can fill that part of the ad, right?

Afterward, Big and Rish talk about Neanderthal accents, the BBC series “Doctor Who,” as well as waxing poetic about time travel once again.

Special thanks to Marshal Latham for producing today’s story, and Julie Hoverson for lending her voice to today’s episode.

Episode 106: Peacemaker, Peacemaker, Little Bo Peep by Jason Sanford

Posted in Action, Fantasy, Horror, Jason Sanford, Short Story on July 1, 2011 by dunesteef

Peeeeeeeeace.

The previously kind, docile, and sane people of town have turned violent and bloodthirsty. They’re killing off anyone in town who is normally willing to do violence, from murderers to police officers. How can Sgt. Davies save herself and her family?

Afterward, Big and Rish talk about feedback, especially comments, about this episode and old ones. A second incentive episode is announced. Also, Rish tries to coin the term “as thick as nails.” And “renumeration.” This is not his night.
