The Podcast That Dares Not Speak Its Name 13: The Cemetery Tale

Since it's pretty close to Halloween, I figured I'd present some kind of scary story on here.  Barring that, I could present a story that's merely "scary."  Maybe next year I'll do better.

Oh, "The Cemetery Tale" is a story I wrote several years ago, based on (mostly) actual experience.  It is one of a trio of stories featuring the same main character, but just between us, Walter is me.

Rish Narrates on Far-Fetched Fables

Gary Dowell over at "Far-Fetched Fables" seems to like my work.  Otherwise, why would he keep giving me stories to narrate on his podcast?

Of course, I could always decline.  Then I'd have to, ugh, go back to my audiobook narration for money.  *Shudder*

This month, it's a very short piece called "Percy's Crossing" written by Elizabeth Archer.

Here's the LINK!

Happy Birthday, Big Anklevich

I asked my "friend" Sir Fake Sean Connery to create something for my friend's (last?) birthday.

Rish Performs "Veruchia" by E.C. Tubb, on Audible

So, here's another Dumarest of Terra book I finished this summer.  It's called "Veruchia," and is the best one so far.

Veruchia is one of two possible successors to the planet Dradea's throne, but her power-hungry cousin is determined to inherit, even if it means eliminating the competition.  Enter Earl Dumarest, stuck on the planet and forced to do battle against monsters for entertainment, until he is hired to be Veruchia's bodyguard.  Will they fall in love?  Of course they will.  Will Earl finally discover the location of Earth?  Of course he won't, not when there's another two dozen of these books on the horizon.

It is my favorite of these books, as I mentioned.  Of course, it does have a couple of interesting subplots that are introduced and then abandoned, and the chapters are so depressingly long as to keep me from doing more than one in one recording/editing session.  But I liked the this book quite a bit.

You can find it at this LINK and spend your valuable credits and/or money on it.

These books have taken me an insanely long time to get recorded, to the point where I guess I have been replaced as the narrator in question for the series.  I'm of two minds there, but I do admit that it's my fault for not having worked harder to get these out by the deadline (or even within a year of the deadline).

Rish Outcast 28: Not-A-Novel

Here's Rish talking while driving through the desert in a car that's supposed to break down.  He discusses the novel he was supposed to write this summer, the various rip-offs he has unintentionally perpetrated, and the mental block he has keeping him from ever being a novelist.

Rish Performs "The Fox Bride" on Podcastle

Podcastle started out my enemy, and has now become my friend.  I wish that sort of thing happened in real life.

The most recent tale I've narrated for them is "The Fox Bride," by Mari Ness.

This was an odd tale that felt like it was a metaphor for something (luckily, I'm too thick to get any subtext in pieces like this), about a young prince who gets married off to a fox.  If he can get the fox to transform into a girl, then he'll live happily ever after . . . if not, well, there are other princes.

It can be found at THIS LINK.
