This week I have three short stories for you to listen to. They come from three different podcasts: PodCastle, PseudoPod, and The Drabblecast. To listen, you can either follow the links I have below, or download them on iTunes (my preferred method). Simply search for the podcast, and then download the episode. I hope you enjoy these stories as much as I did!
The first comes from the fantasy fiction podcast, PodCastle. It's called The Queen's Triplets by Israel Zangwill. It's an old story, published in the late 1800s, but it's a fun one to listen to. It reads like a fable, which, in a way, it may just be. I enjoyed the colorful language and the narrator did a great job with it.
The next story comes from the horror podcast, PsuedoPod. It's Fading
Light by Simon Strantzas. This is a bleak ghost story centered around two poor guys who can't get over being dumped by their girlfriends--the narrator from five years prior. He helps his recently dumped buddy find a place to rent, but the place turns out to be haunted.
The final story of the week comes from The Drabblecast. It's called Cassie
by Tim Pratt. This story is worth a listen all on its own, but there is also a drabble (a story of exactly 100 words) and a humorous talk of the Rock, Paper, Scissors World-Wide Organization that make this entire episode a great listen.
I hope you enjoy these three stories as much as I did. As I say every week, I'm getting nothing from anybody for showcasing these stories. They simply entertained me, and I wanted to point them out so others can enjoy them, as well. Until next week, keep reading and/or writing.
