The Dunesteef Audio Fiction Magazine
The Best Stories in Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror and Other Genres

Lindsey is a paranormal investigator, but she has an advantage on most, because she has the demon Adramelech captured in a Raggedy Ann doll, and it does her bidding, which makes casting out the demon really simple. Today, however, things are different. The house they've come to investigate has an <em>actual</em> presence that's already there, and it has bad intentions.

Afterward, Big and Rish talk about continuing stories, Patreons, and changes coming to the podcast in the near future.

Special thanks to Margaret Essex for lending her voice to this production.

We conclude our presentation of "Like A Good Neighbor."  AKA many things.  Lara spends more time with Old Widow Holcomb, learning spells and finding out more about her.  And where it stops, nobody knows!

Afterward, Big and Rish talk about endings, story length and decisions, and knowing when to walk away (and knowing when to run).

Oh, and here's a link to the "announcement episode" of That Gets My Goat they refer to.

Special thanks to Bria Burton for lending her voice to this production.

When Lara Demming awakens at night, she discovers Old Lady Holcomb next door is more than she appears to be.

Afterward, Rish and Big talk about the few things that they can after only reaching the halfway point of a story. So, they discuss the origin of the tale, and the many iterations of the title.

Note: the title Rish could not remember was "Believe It Or Not."  Yeah.

"Time to feed the toilet monster."

He has a different kind of monster than most, and he can't shake it. He sees it every day of his life. Is there no way he can defeat it? Find out in "My Porcelain Monster" by Eric Dean.

Afterward, Rish and Big talk about the difficulties and the triumphs of taking something not generally considered scary, and making it so.

Jacob was working at his record store when the bell over the door tinkled, and he looked up to see his old friend Justin come in to look at the albums. Funny thing, though, his old friend Justin died two years ago...

Afterward, Rish and Big talk about the Mandela affect, as well as...gasp...Patreon. Looks like they're asking for listener feedback on the subject.

Special thanks to Justin Charles for producing the story, and to Renee Chambliss for lending her voice to the story, as well as Gino Moretto for providing the art.

Hey, it's another edition of the Rish Outfield barbecue sketch. If you enjoy people standing around a barbecue, listening to Travis Tritt, and trying to one up each other on any subject that happens to come up, with a little Rish Outfield sauce put right on top, then this episode is for you...you sick bastard.

Special thanks to Renee Chambliss and Adam Gifford for lending their voices to the production.

"No one knew who the present was from; there was no name written on the box."

Amazingly, we bring you the second installment of our Broken Mirror Holiday Spectacular (or Episode, depending on how well it goes over), with stories based on that premise.  This time, we present "The Box" by Gino Moretto, "The Holiday Trip: Guest-Starring Captain America and Bucky" by Rish Outfield, and "A Christmas Wish" by B.D. Anklevich.  And don't forget, Christopher Walken is always watching.

In the tradition of those "Ghost Hunters" shows and possibly BLAIR WITCH, we bring you "The Dune Steef Project."  Rish and Big brave a visit to his uncle's purportedly-haunted house to spend a couple of hours podcasting and seeing what might go bump in the night.  Will they uncover evidence of an actual supernatural presence, or will this end up being, well, like those "Ghost Hunters" shows and BLAIR WITCH?

Happy Halloween!

Special thanks to Chris and Tena Kolakowski for music and other assistance with today's episode.
