Varmits! live on Drabblecast

My short story ‘Varmits!’ is live on Drabblecast – it’s a podcast so turn on your speakers. If you’re at work, there’s a couple naughty words, but nothing too awful. It’s the story of a paranoid man who realizes raccoons are drawn to him by the siren call of his bassoon. And they’re up to no good. (Muwahahahaha!)

Listen to ‘Varmits!’ now.

UPDATE – 1/10/09… What do folks think of this story? Here’s one listener’s comment from the Drabblecast message board. Note that I have absolutely no clue who this person is, aside from the user name Damp_Obsession:

Ok, I totally loved this. Steve Lowe’s dark and livid writing style, Norm’s awesome narrating, and the hilarious premise all mixed together turned into a symphony slathered in awesomesauce. Let’s hope it doesn’t drip on the carpet. I laughed I cried, well I didn’t really cry… But I throughly enjoyed it. I couldn’t help but reminisce back to my old marching band days. He’s right about the Tuba’s you know, they are the bottom of the pecking order, except for maybe the clarinets.

I’m definitely stealing the line “awesomesauce”.

In the queue

Upcoming for 2010, ‘Varmits!’ will appear on Drabblecast as a narrated podcast. I expect it to be awesome.

Also, ‘Inconvenienced by Truth’ will be on Liquid Imagination, scheduled for the first week of Feb. And some time in the Spring, ‘Jumpers’ will be on Three Crow Press. Links will be made available to all at the appropriate times.

OK, enough whoring myself for now. I’ll try to post something of actual interest to people not named Steve Lowe soon.
