"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.

Three girls, with rhyming names, from a small town in Montana, are celebrating the final day of summer vacation when they witness something amazing. You'll never guess what is waiting for them over the next rise.

Afterward, in an episode that was recorded on the day that David Bowie passed away last January, Big and Rish talk about Bowie's legacy, victories, value, and also Bruce Springsteen.

Special thanks to Jonathan Wilson for producing today's story, and to Renee Chambliss, Abigail Hilton, Tena Kolokowski, and Wendy Repchin for lending their voice to the episode.

When the zombie apocalypse arrived, we weren't prepared. We fought amongst ourselves. We did everything wrong. Now, breathers are a minority to the zees. We run and hide constantly from the shambling hordes, as they are driven onward by their never-ending hunger for warm, living flesh. That's why they do it, right?

Afterward, Big and Rish talk...well, zombies of course. Then they hit two things that they forgot to include in the last episode. Sorry about that guys, we meant to do them, but when we lost our first recording, we became scatterbrained.

No, we're not circling the drain. We actually have several stories in various stages of production. However, we aren't presenting any of those to you today, and we didn't want you to have to wait too long for the next episode. So, today is one of those...uh...meta episodes, where we talk about the upcoming changes to the podcast, as well as a nice introduction to Rish Outfield's now available first novel, <em>Into The Furnace</em>. Enjoy the show, and be sure to purchase the book. The more sales, the faster Rish will have another written and produced.

Joel's luck has gone south. He's lost his job, his marriage has dissolved, and his truck crashed and his dog died...wait a minute, sorry, scratch those last two. This isn't a country song, it's a short story. Anyway, Joel has been pushed to the limit, and he's thinking of giving up, unless something can change his luck...

Afterward, Big and Rish have an announcement to make about the future of the podcast. What changes might be in store, find out on the Dunesteef Audio Fiction Magazine!

Special thanks to Gino Moretto, Barry Haworth, Bria Burton and Marshal Latham for lending their voices.
