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 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.
