Posted in Action, Adventure, BMSE, Comedy, Drama, Fantasy, Horror, J.M. Perkins, Kevin Anderson, Michael A. Kechula, Mystery, Poetry, Science Fiction, Short Story on September 19, 2009 by dunesteef

“Someone arrives in town, and discovers that everyone there is exactly the same.”

In this episode, we feature three different pieces on the above theme, by three different authors.

In “The Return,” Kevin Anderson interprets the subject in verse.

In “Scriptopia,” Michael A. Kechula tells of a visit to a strange place, where everyone is a writer, but Kevin would decidedly not be welcome.

In “Chemo: The Town of Golden Woods” by J.M. Perkins, an elite team of trained agents is sent into a little town, in search of the previous team that went in . . . and didn’t report back. bloopers

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
