Starr Striker was a far more interesting (very) short story of the two.  It spoke to a contemporary issue with a fantastical flare.  For me, it added enough detail to set the stage in my minds eye and brought me to a thoughtful state.

All the Fishes Singing didn't strike a chord for me.  I must say that the descriptions and details were quite well done, but just didn't catch up with me.  But, that's my problem, not the authors.  My personal impression aside, I felt like the prose was an impressive construction.

I have to say, this was an enjoyable story.  I liked how it held my attention, making me curious what was next, how things were going to unfold and end.  Well done.

OK, first and foremost, I need to say that this story was a home run.  It is playing ball in the same ballpark as "Paper Tiger."  If this was a home run, "Paper Tiger" was a grand slam, from my point of view.

Now, second, and much less important, I'm surprised that we waited for Artemis Rising to hear this story.  I guess you could mark this as my "compliant" if you're looking for one.

Veronica was a very excellent choice for a reader.  (However, I could be biased, she's really just that good.)

A few years back I was at a con where Andreas Katsulas, Jason Carter and Richard Biggs finished a board together. They were interesting. Directly two of the three are gone, young.

My take on this was a lot less optimistic than Mur's. I saw less "humanity ascending to the next level" and more "we are Borg, you will be assimilated." The way anyone absorbed into the hive mind turned instantly to bringing others in felt like a spreading infection and left me wondering if there's anything left under the all-consuming need to grow larger.

The Burrito, Duff vs. Diltz, The Answering Machine, and my favorite, Letting go, are a few of the titles I remember from the short story podcast titled the Peanut Gallery; Stories form the Back Benches.  I has been several years since I listened to it, but I remember I was using JUICE 2.0 at the time.  DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEA WHERE THEY MIGHT BE FOUND?  Any forums or sites that I may find additional information would be most appreciated.  I believe one of the authors was ______ Anderson, or Andersen?

Thanks for your time and effort,

PseudoPod 639: ARTEMIS RISING 5: Of All the Things the Girls Had Ever Said

Author: Melody Wolfe
Narrator:
Hosts: Brea Grant and Mallory O’Meara

“Of All the Things the Girls Had Ever Said” was previously available on Amazon



Show Notes

“This is one of the rare stories I wrote longhand in a fever pitch during a late night ferry crossing between the mainland and Vancouver Island. I don’t tend to write when inspired — I’m more of a work horse. But this came to me in a flash, fully dressed and ready to go. It’s one of my favourites.”



When Fay said, “This isn’t the first time this has happened to me, you know,” Richard was surprised.

Of all the things the girls had ever said, all the pleas, threats, insults and confessions, this hitchhiker’s calm admission was the strangest. Not just for its content, not just for the tone of its delivery, but also for the fact that she was saying it mere minutes after waking up in the basement.

LOL! Interesting to read what I wrote the last time I listened to this story. Even more interesting that my opinion has not changed. Good to know I am consistent.  Wink
