In August, Drabblecast, the weird-fiction podcast had their annual H. P. Lovecraft month. One of the stories they ran was Maybe the Stars  by  Samantha Henderson which was a neat take on the mythos, casting the Deep Ones in a sympathetic light.

And for fans of science-fiction, even though it didn’t contain any anthro characters, “The Wreck of the Charles Dexter Ward” (part one and part two)  by  Elizabeth Bear and Sarah Monette was a very entertaining and engaging story. It’s the third tale set in the shared world by the writing duo, which borrows elements of both Lovecraft and Alice in Wonderland.

AD 035 – Shreddy and the Zomb-Dogs   November 4th, 2011

This episode was supposed to posted before the end of October, but Santa claimed his revenge for “The Nightmare Before Christmas” and the freak snowstorm that hit the North East knocked out power for most of this week.

So Happy Halloween, better late than never. We have a treat for you tonight, a dark-fantasy adventure with a character you might remember.

“Shreddy and the Zomb-dogs” is Mary E. Lowd’s second story about Shreddy, the cantankerous tabby cat who has a knack for running afoul of modern electronics. Mary’s story “The Necromouser” appeared in episode 30.

AD Extra 006 – Autumn Vignettes   October 27th, 2011

Extra episodes showcase something different from the normal stories here. These tales are not anthropomorphic, but fall into speculative fiction and dark fantasy genres. They are also timely, and fit the theme of Halloween and the colder autumn nights with the changing of the seasons.
