Drabblecast Presents: Far Far Away

The bullet-riddled corpses of our dead crew-mates, all sixteen of them, are coffined up, and the coffins stacked as a makeshift ping pong table…

Drabblecast Fan Pick: Followed

Drabblecast Fan Picks Followed cover artThe Drabblecast Reborn Kickstarter campaign continues! Today, Fan Picks: Followed, by Will McIntosh as chosen and introduced by Drabblecast fan Boo Yeah. Hear her thoughts on an unsettling story about living with the consequences of our actions…

This story originally aired in 2011.

Story Excerpt:

She came wandering down the sidewalk like any other corpse, her herky-jerky walk unmistakable among the fluid strides of the living.  She was six or seven, Southeast Asian, maybe Indian, her ragged clothes caked in dried mud. Pedestrians cut a wide berth around her without noticing her at all…

So enjoy this Fan Pick:

Drabblecast Presents: The Parasite Parade

Drabblecast Presents the Parasite Parade CoverThe Drabblecast presents “The Parasite Parade,” an audio version of an original children’s book written by Norm Sherman. The illustrations are by Caroline Parkinson.

It’s a children’s book about—you guessed it—parasites! Why, you ask? Seriously, kids these days just seem too normal.  With their green energy and their social awareness. Children need disturbing realities too and we figured why not illustrate that?

Fortunately for all the naive mini-adults out there, Caroline felt the same way!

How ar’ diz kidz nawt f*&ked up enuff?!

-Caroline Parkinson
(hypothetical quote… in marginally offensive British cockney)

And so there it was, folks. The Parasite Parade was born. The audiobook and hardcover versions will be available soon through the Drabblecast Kickstarter!
