Cast of Wonders, the podcast of fiction for young adults offers up an older story from a well-known author. In The George Business by Roger Zelazny, we see a fun take on alternative methods to dealing with dragons.

Happy belated April Fools; better late than never. Tonight we have three fun short pieces, with a couple of shared themes which should be easy to discern.

Catching up on back issues of the Drabblecast, a weekly podcast of weird fiction, I found this belated Halloween treat. The Great Old Pumpkin is a fun story which manages to blend the Cthulu mythos with the familiar world of Peanuts holiday specials. It was a nice bit of clever humor which was a lot of fun to listen to.

Our serialized novella concludes with a mix of action and drama. Happy Halloween!
