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


Erik of Ciohar is a mighty warrior, defender of his land, and not at all bad with the ladies.  But after his last mission to the dread city of Tetra Manna, he is not the man he used to be (literally).  Is he still a hero?  Can he serve his people as he used to, and can the dark magic of the Tetrans be overcome?
 
Afterward, Rish and Big talk about the long and winding road in producing this story, world-building, and Comic-Con.  Plus, somewhere in there is an announcement about the Parsec Awards.

Special thanks to R.E. Chambliss, Julie Hoverson, Kim Price and Joe Zieja lending their voices to today's episode, and to Lisa Wilde for today's episode art.

When Greg discovers what appears to be a secret message in his computer (and everybody else's), he has the option of believing it to be from "somewhere else" or just ignoring it like the vast majority would.  Which will he choose?  Well, the story's title may give you a bit of a hint there.
 
Afterward, Big and Rish talk about the story's ending, and then Rish says a few words about his recent trip to the San Diego Comic-Con.  Alright, more than just a few words.

Special thanks to A. W. Gifford for producing today's story, also to Jennifer Gifford, Gina Padilla, Joshua Porter, The Tie Dye Flipster, Sgzhanke S. Carlo, and A. W. Gifford for lending their voices to today's episode.
