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

When a little boy goes missing in rural Missouri, a low-level newspaper reporter heads to the woods to cover the story.  But there's more going on than he bargained for, and this isn't the first child to disappear in that area.
Also, Rish and Big talk about fear of the unknown, sound effects, and leaving things to the imagination.

Special thanks to Josh Roseman, Julie Hoverson, Lizanne Herd, Juliet Bowler, and Rich Girardi for lending their voices to today's story.

Adel arrived at a hospice, and seemed to be like any ordinary patient, but she endlessly tried to flee, and constantly muttered in German about needing to verwandeln.  What could she mean?

Also, Big talks a bit about Dean Wesley Smith's "Killing The Sacred Cows Of Publishing," and Rish argues with him about them.  Then, they play a round of "Two Truths & A Lie," with a book by Kevin David Anderson hanging in the balance.

Warning: Some of Rish Outfield's statements in this episode are even more (deliberately?) incendiary than usual.  Listen with a grain of salt handy.

Special thanks to Lizanne Herd for producing and narrating today's story, and to Julie Hoverson for lending her voice.

Tars Bokara has the unenviable task of seeking out the unlikely location of the long-lost planet Earth.  When he finds it, he discovers a thriving business covering the entire world, with employees eager to please.  Want to take a guess what their hours are?

Also, Rish talks (and talks and talks) about his recent trip to Comic-Con.  Romance, frustration, and murder attempts abounded, apparently.  Somewhere in all this, Big tells him why the show's never had a Parsec nomination.

Special thanks to Julie Hoverson and Christy Maia for lending their voices to today's episode.
