Drabblecast 405 – Wet Fur

Cover for Drabblecast episode Wet Fur by Saratoga RidzaThis week The Drabblecast presents “Wet Fur” by Jeremiah Tolbert.

From Jeremiah:

“This story came to me wholly formed in a dream one day. I wrote it in a white hot tear, desperate to capture all the details and emotions that had seemed so immediate in the dream. It’s about how our pets live such short lives compared to us. It’s about what happens when someone tries to do something about that…”

Story Excerpt:

Drabblecast 120 – Doubleheader III

Cover for Drabblecast episode 120, DoubleHeader 3, by Alyssa SuzumuraWe reach the rocky banks, out of breath. We do not speak. We can barely hear our voices over water raging against the rocks. Our breath makes white clouds. I buckle my helmet and cinch my gloves tighter…

Leading off this episode of the Drabblecast is a Drabble about a child drowning, or a child throwing a tantrum – it’s hard to tell? The feature is a double dip in to talented ind of author Jeremiah Tolbert. The first story, entitled The Fisherman, is about a father and son sharing a touching, early morning fishing moment (but for what?). The second feature, A Sandwich Shop in Chicago, 1AM is also a touching tale of a wounded talking four-legged animal with one last request.
