Drabblecast 410 – Go Between
By China Miéville
Something was in the bread. Morley was cutting, and on the fourth strike of the knife, the metal broke.
Behind him, his friends talked over their food. Morley pried the dough apart and touched something smooth. He had marked it with a scratch. Morley could see the thing’s colour, a drab charcoal. He frowned. It had been a long time since this had happened…

This one really felt like classic, old school Drabblecast to me. China is weird to the core.

Interesting tidbit of DC inside baseball: Bo uses himself as a starting point for a lot of the faces he uses when doing DC art. Go back and look, you can often see the hilarious similarities... even when you might not... expect it...

Loved this episode! I read (listened to) Kraken by China Mieville a few years ago, also wonderfully weird, I must read (listen to) his other novels. Liked how this story captured that desire to matter and also the desire to be of no consequence, I know I feel both ways off and on.
