The Chromatic Knights are out destroying vampires, which means that the clean up crew will have some work to do. The Blue Knight does a lot of good, but he really ought to give a thought or two to the little guy.

I’m a trombone, you’re a clarinet. Afterward, Rish and Big talk janitor work, Little Caesars, and wait…why is that light blinking? What does that blinking light mean?

Episode 164: The Empire State Building Strikes Back by Matthew Sanborn Smith

Posted in Fantasy, Matthew Sanborn Smith, Science Fiction, Short Story on September 24, 2014 by dunesteef

THE EMPIRE STATE BUILDING STRIKES BACK COVER ART

At long last, the story that you never thought you’d hear. It’s the lostest of the lost episodes of the Dunesteef Audio Fiction Magazine.

It is the age of super science. Dr. Nefarious is on the verge of inducing the singularity and destroying the world. The only hope for humanity is Malcolm…well, he’s not the only hope, there is a plan C. Don’t look for plan B, it’s not back there.

Afterward, Big and Rish apologize profusely to Matthew, and tell the sad, twisted tale of The Empire State Building Strikes Back‘s journey to audio publication. It’s a really sad, twisted tale. And…we’re really sorry this took so long, Matthew.

Special thanks to Renee Chambliss, Marshal Latham, Dave Thompson “Podcastle Enforcer”, L. Scribe Harris, and Tom Tancredi for lending their voices to the episode, and to Sonny See for providing the episode art.

surferdudes

Clay Dugger brings the stirring tale of one man’s search to regain the happiness of his youth…and the interesting folks he finds it with. Aw, who am I kidding, just read the title, it should be enough right?

Afterwards, Big plumbs the depths of Rish’s hate for all things surfer related. Just how deep does this twisted soul’s hate run anyway? I mean, how hateful and awful can one person be? Well, this is Rish we’re talking about, so…

Special thanks to Jonathan Wilson for providing the art for the episode.

Dunesteef Time Pressure Artwork

Harris Tobias tells us the story of “Time Pressure,” as the weight of chronons intensify, the further back in time one travels. Time travel has become a sort of game between the great powers of the world, a game of tag, with almost no consequence. Until a new player enters the game.

Afterward, Big and Rish talk about going back in time, buying rare baseball cards, stepping on butterflies, and knocking up Grandma. Warning: there may be singing again.
