The Dunesteef Audio Fiction Magazine
The Best Stories in Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror and Other Genres
The Dunesteef save Christmas.  Something has happened to the little town of Hawk Creek.  Overnight, literally from one minute to the next, their Christmas spirit fled.  What can Dale Cooper do to bring it back?

Afterwards, Rish and Big do a self-indulgently extended author's note.   It's really pretty sad how much these guys are in love with themselves.

The lads are excited to present the first novelette on the Dunesteef. In the Old West town of Ogre Ridge, heavy-drinking, broken-hearted Cassie Grant finds herself in the middle of two powerful feuding families. Magical, necromancer families. Cassie won’t last for very long, unless she has help. Supernatural help.

Afterward, Big and Rish talk a little bit about story length and Westerns, and a lot about, well, an array of rambling topics. An embarrassing array.

Special thanks to Julie Hoverson for lending her voice to the story.
