Episode 215: Catastrophe Baker and the Siren of Silverstrike by Mike Resnick

Posted in Comedy, Mike Resnick, Science Fiction, Short Story on February 14, 2020 by dunesteef

silverstrike

When Mike Resnick passed away on January 9th, Rish and Big knew they had to make one of his stories their next episode. Years ago, he’d sent them out a huge batch of Catastrophe Baker stories so that they could continue the series on the show. What better way to remember him than to put one of his creations out for fans to enjoy?

Catastrophe Baker makes a trip to Silverstrike and while he’s there, he attends a carnival. It’s pretty ho-hum until he gets summoned to the tent of the Siren of Silverstrike to see the show that everyone is talking about.

Afterward, Rish and Big talk about Mike Resnick and what he has meant to the science fiction community, the podcast community, and the Dunesteef Audio Fiction Magazine. We’ll miss you, Mike.

Special thanks to Renee Chambliss for lending her voice to the episode.

Episode 202: Creeping Danger by Carl H. Claudy

Posted in Carl H. Claudy, Science Fiction, Short Story on October 5, 2018 by dunesteef

CREEPING DANGER

In 1937, Carl H. Claudy published a story called “Creeping Danger” in a popular magazine called American Boy magazine. In 2018, Rish Outfield discovered a copy of American Boy magazine in an old trunk in a shed called the Tin Garage, and decided that story would make an interesting episode of the Dunesteef Audio Fiction Magazine. So, here it is, a reading of a historical pulp science fiction story from the thirties. Hope you enjoy!

Special thanks to Marshal Latham for lending his voice to this production.

Oh, here’s that picture of the fly attacking the cowboy that Rish mentioned as well. Check it out if you like:

The International Association of Time Travelers member forum has some lively discussion going on over at the Europe – Twentieth Century – Second World War subforum. Let’s listen in and see…

Afterward, Rish and Big talk about online culture and World War II, but separately, because, you know, there’d have to be time travel involved for them to come together at all.

Also, here’s a variant cover provided by our intrepid producer Justin Charles, who made some art like he always does, not knowing that someone else already had. I hate to see his work go to waste, so I include it below.
