What a strange trip it’s been. And speaking of strange trips, we bring you the final winning entry in the Triple Word Score Contest, “Greetings from the Ninth Sector.” Corporal Bruce Otterson sends home a message each day as the ship he’s on travels where very few men have gone before . . . for a reason.

Afterword, surprise, Big and Rish talk about the story! And give special thanks to Sonny See for his unusual production of the story.

Special thanks to Sonny See and Josh Roseman for lending their voices, and to Sonny See for producing the story as well as the art, and the awesome YouTube video for that matter.

Episode 176: TWSC – The Mosquito Room by Katherine Inskip

Posted in Katherine Inskip, Science Fiction, Short Story, TWSC on November 24, 2015 by dunesteef

Katherine Inskip has a bit of Biopunk for you. The Company is under attack. Someone’s hacked Factory-9’s fruiting knotweed. Water filtration’s screwed, there’s untreated effluent everywhere…oh, and the plants are oozing blood, apparently. And if all that wasn’t enough, Chris has got a friggin’ tour group to deal with. Could it be worse?

Afterward, Rish and Big talk about Biopunk, not being smart enough for Biopunk, and all the things that they talked about the first time they tried to do the episode and the recorder’s battery died.

Special thanks to Renee Chambliss and Katherine Inskip for lending their voices to the story, and to Justin Charles for producing the episode and providing the art.

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.

Episode 165: TWSC – The Short Life And Slow Death Of Timmy Van Lowe by Bryan Lincoln

Posted in Bryan Lincoln, Fantasy, Horror, Poem, TWSC on October 9, 2014 by dunesteef

Timmy Van Lowe

An entity is pulled from its slumber, to perform its duty. What is that duty? It’s pretty distasteful. Listen to the dark poem by Bryan Lincoln that was good enough to force Big and Rish’s hand, and make them run their least favorite literary genre on their show.

Afterward, Rish and Big curse Bryan’s name, and vow to avenge the wrong he has done to them. They also praise his good looks, and flounder about pathetically while trying to interpret just what happened in the poem. Luckily, Sonny See was there to rescue them.

Special thanks to Sonny See for producing and narrating today’s story, as well as providing the episode art.
