Episode 38: Garbage Day

Today I present a very brief story called Garbage Day. Though there is no adult content whatsoever, I feel some of you may find it rather disturbing... I know I did.

Our intro today came from Taylor Kent of the Snark Infested Waters podcast. As noted in the blog post below, I had the extreme pleasure of appearing on Taylor's show a couple of weeks ago. Taylor's knowledge of the horror genre was impressive, and I've got to tell you he really GOT Revelations, and it really showed in the interview. I hope you'll check out the interview here.

In the outro of the show (which I'm beginning to think I should script instead of attempting to deliver off the cuff- sheesh, what a mess), after gushing for a while about how insanely cool you guys are, I mentioned a couple of things.

First, that I don't immediately accept every friend request I get on MySpace. So, please, if you are a listener to the show and I missed you, be sure to send me a message or a comment so that I can correct the oversight. And here's the link to horror author Stuart Neild, who's encouragement I have found so gratifying. Stuart, I am humbled.

Second, I announced that the e-book version of REVELATIONS is now free to download. I hope you'll share it with any horror fans you might know who don't listen to podcasts- and be sure to point out that the book is dedicated to YOU! I've added a permanent link to the REVELATIONS download on the right side of the page.

Once more I must thank you all for listening, and for continuing to encourage me to produce CLMW.

Damn, you are going to have to give us the long version of that tale. I know it won't let me sleep tonight going through all the possibilities.
Once again, you got me good!

I've listened to your podcast since the very beginning and have loved your episodes (and Revelations). Garbage Day is definitely one of the best - interesting, suspenseful, taut, very clever.

Crazies...can't live with them, can't let them have your trash.

Next story will be of him falling through a trash world. A mix of Butterfly Lady from Phil Rossi and The Trash Heap from Fraggle Rock

Keep up the good work!

Man...talk about creepy. This story goes up there with "The Giver." Also, it's sweet you're offering "Revelations" for free. I LOVE that story!
