Cover for Drabblecast episode 40, Marbles, by David Steffen

“Michael…” his mother said, smiling and bending toward him. “Don’t you think we should invite your new neighbor over to play?”

In Drabble News:  the field of Taxidermy triumphs with the successful recovery of a famous cryptozoological (mystery) animal. This week’s Drabble, “Shark attack,” provides a surprising role reversal. The feature story, also by author Ayn Sauer, continues the theme of vicious youth. “Marbles” tells the tale of young Michael and a precocious young collector named Alice. It details a kiddie cross, the sort of thing that scars for life, or elicits a frightful smile. Head-scratcher feedback for Episode #35, “The Guilt Trader,” follows.

Cover for Drabblecast episode 39, The Beekeepers

The Tehtix move so damn fast – scientists can’t ever keep up… and populations never know what hit them…

In a mind-bending tale of parasitic worms, intelligent wasps and a symbiotic virus, author J. Alan Pierce describes an unusual alien invasion that preserves its victims forever. The story connects themes of dreams and communication. Mr. Pierce had previously written Episode #18, “The One that Got Away.” Finally, Drabble News recounts the story of an alleged alien virus, arising from a meteor falling in Andes. A real-life story of contamination in the same region as the feature story – co-incidence or premonition?  Feedback #34, “The Suit,” rounded out the episode.

Cover for Drabblecast episode 28, The Hog-Faced Man, by Richard K. GreenI listened to my father talk about the hog-faced man who came into his hospital room and stood at the foot of his bed.
“What does he say to you?” I asked.
My father turned his head and looked at me.
“He tells me he’s too early…”

On this episode of the Drabblecast, a spooky, sorrowful apparition causes a father to question his worldview. What secrets does this nocturnal visitor hide?
