Cover for Drabblecast episode 144, by Sean AzzapardiThis sounds ridiculous, I know. It’s like watching an old movie where everyone has a British accent, even if they’re supposed to be in ancient Rome or something. God is just impossible to translate…

Cover for Drabblecast B-Sides episode 8, The Elves Hate You, by Jan Dennison“You’re sure that’s not a vulcan?”

Pikachimp, Vlad’s right-arm man shook his head.

“Nah. Them’s elves all right. And the tall one’s been shopping same place as you.”

Vlad’s preternatural sight was perfectly adapted to the club’s dim lighting.

“You’re right. I can’t believe he has the nerve to wear that in here. I practically invented throat-ruffles. C’mon, let’s show those pansies they can’t mess with vampires..”

Cover for Drabblecast episode 139, Let Us Now Praise Awesome Dinosaurs, by Bo Kaier“I want to buy a gun,” said the Thymomenoraptor. He moved his foreclaw along the glass case of pistols, counting them off: one, two, three, four. “That one.” He tapped the case; the glass squeaked.

“Why would a dinosaur need a gun?” asked the shop owner.

“Self-defense….”

 

Awesome dinosaurs doing radical things – it’s radical!
