Join Big, Rish, and a friendly policeman as we hear various takes on the idea, from listeners Andrew O’Dell, Gino Moretto, Sam, Bria Burton, Andy Dillbeck, Cameron, Nobilis Reed, and Rish Outfield.

Episode 181: Hope On The Rocks by AW Gifford

Posted in A.W. Gifford, Fantasy, Short Story on May 15, 2016 by dunesteef

Hope

Joel’s luck has gone south. He’s lost his job, his marriage has dissolved, and his truck crashed and his dog died…wait a minute, sorry, scratch those last two. This isn’t a country song, it’s a short story. Anyway, Joel has been pushed to the limit, and he’s thinking of giving up, unless something can change his luck…

Afterward, Big and Rish have an announcement to make about the future of the podcast. What changes might be in store, find out on the Dunesteef Audio Fiction Magazine!

Special thanks to Gino Moretto, Barry Haworth, Bria Burton and Marshal Latham for lending their voices.

Almost there folks. We’re coming to the end of our TWSC stories. This time it’s Big Anklevich with a tale about a doppelganger, and the mischief that he can get up to.

Afterward, Rish and Big talk about writing, goals, and facing a grocery store. It’s scintillating stuff.

Posted in Christmas, Fantasy, Horror, Rish Outfield, Short Story on December 24, 2015 by dunesteef

ChristmasGhost1

We’ve all met one of them in our life. You know those people who think Christmas is a humbug. People that think there’s more of gravy than of grave to a ghost story. People that just don’t care about the holidays…if only they had a name to call them…anyway, today’s story is about that guy.

Afterward, Rish and Big talk about the story and just what it means, oh, and I’ll let you know right now, California Rish does not make an appearance.

Special thanks to Tena Kolakowski for lending her voice to the story.

Episode 174: Ship Of Fools by David Farland (Part 1)

Posted in David Farland, Fantasy, Horror, Novelette on September 3, 2015 by dunesteef

Ship of Fools

David Farland brings us the tale of a group of jesters; Erstwhyle, Baron Blunder, and Amilee; making a long journey to the dark and forbidding Castle Crydon to compete in a contest of fools that could fetch them a purse of 1,000 guldars. Could they possibly win? And if they win, might they still lose?

Afterward, Rish and Big surprisingly talk very little, but after all it’s only the end of part one, they’ll surely gabble on for hours after part two, so if you like that sort of thing, fear not.

Special thanks to Renee Chambliss, Graeme Dunlop and Ben Gifford for lending their voices to the story.

Episode 169: TWSC – Calamari Stakeout by Austin Malone

Posted in Austin Malone, Fantasy, Short Story, TWSC on February 28, 2015 by dunesteef

CalamariStakeout

The Trench is the only waterway that a ship can take to get to the western continent. Unfortunately, there at the entrance, between the twin peaks of Seidar and Phaestia, prowls Ol’ Sly, a gigantic squid creature that would like nothing more than to crack a ship open like a jaca fruit, and pick the sailors out and eat them like the sweet seeds. Small Fry and the Admiral have a plan, though. They mean to take down Ol’ Sly once and for all, and open the western continent to their ships.

Afterward, Rish and Big try to decide what really is the worst way to wake up, live squid or porcupine covered in hair gel? Oh, and song. You have been warned.

Special thanks to Justin Charles for producing the story and doing the episode art, and to Julie Hoverson for lending her voice to the tale.

Episode 167: Dear Santa by B.D. Anklevich

Posted in Big Anklevich, Christmas, Fantasy, Short Story on December 25, 2014 by dunesteef

DearSantaDunesteef

Just under the wire, since there’s still a few hours left of Christmas…at least in our time zone, here’s our annual holiday spectacular.

Jaxon has written a letter to Santa Claus. He needs something a little out of the ordinary this Christmas. Will he get it? Ho, ho ho!

Afterwards, Big and Rish talk about the story, believing in Santa, and the crazy things people name their children…and their characters these days.

Special thanks to Justin Charles for producing today’s story, and to Renee Chambliss and Dave Robison for lending their voices to the tale.

I also wanted to share the alternative art that was created for the story by Justin Charles. I had already made the first art, so I stuck with it, but this one was fun enough that I wanted to show it to everyone:
