Episode 132: Belief by Josh Roseman

Posted in Josh Roseman, Mystery, Science Fiction, Short Story on August 8, 2012 by dunesteef

When Greg discovers what appears to be a secret message in his computer (and everybody else’s), he has the option of believing it to be from “somewhere else” or just ignoring it like the vast majority would. Which will he choose? Well, the story’s title may give you a bit of a hint there.

Afterward, Big and Rish talk about the story’s ending, and then Rish says a few words about his recent trip to the San Diego Comic-Con. Alright, more than just a few words.
