EP052: Single White Farmhouse

By Heather Shaw.
Read by The Word Whore.

The house consented to the wiring, and as soon as it was done she explored it carefully, like you or I would poke at a new tooth filling. Wasn’t long before any unused terminal would be flashing from her zooms around the internet. New bookmarks were always appearing in the browser files — architecture sites, construction sites, even some redecorating, Better Homes and Gardens-type sites were piling up in the history. Dad was disgusted by this — called it “house porn,” which made me and my brother giggle.

Rated R. Contains strong language and home… Oh, erotica.

Listen to this week’s Escape Pod!

Cute idea.  Housie was well portrayed, I could really root for her, and the interaction between her and her family was fun.  I saw the skyscraper's identity coming a mile away, but that didn't ruin the reveal.  My only quibble was that when the chicken legs suddenly manifested midstory that was rather jarring for me as mobility had never been discussed before that.

I loved this sweet little story. So very unique and such an original concept. A classic.

Yeah, that one still sticks out in my mind.  A great story back from the fantasy years of Escape Pod.
