Your letters beat me to Husa and I’ve told the computer to dole them out at the intervals that you sent them. I got no idea why I’m telling you that, since there’s zero chance you’ll read this. Helps me focus, I guess.

Cover for Drabblecast episode 182, Trifecta XIV, by Jan Dennison

This episode of Drabblecast is another Trifecta special, with the of: Identity. Norm debates how our perceptions of optical illusions reflect how each person views things in their own, personal way. Evil Robot Monkey looks at the life of Sly, a micro-chip enhanced chimpanzee who creates pottery in order to deal with the stress of having intelligence. Character Flu examines a future where humanity has been infected by the worst disease ever. The show ends on a lighter note with Toaster of the Gods, read by the Dunesteef, in which a self-deified, sentient toaster shows us how far the protagonist will go for perfect toast.
