Cover for Drabblecast episode 12, Free Willy 2.4, by Jonathan Wilson

A textbook example of whale robotics gone terribly wrong…

Episode 12 sees the climax of the first ever Super Animal Deathmatch (also know as the Mega-Beast Death-Match), with Norm revealing the winner – Telephant. It also includes Anna Luther’s story “Free Willy 2.4” – the reintroduction of (robotic) killer whales, and how mad science and tinkering with the natural world (as per usual) goes spectacularly, savagely wrong.

Cover for Drabblecast episode 1, The Coughing Dog, by Liz

Brothers Matt and Adam return home for the holidays to find that things have changed a little…

In the Drabblecast’s very first episode, ‘Norman’ Sherman introduces his own story ‘The Coughing Dog’ – a tale about family reuniting at Christmas, and a domestic pet with a very… unusual condition. Norm introduces the basic concept of the show, which he describes as “flash fiction of an atypical nature […] by very strange people,” and admits that while not all stories will include demons, chupacabras, aliens and yetis, many will.
