Customer Reviews

PhelineCat ,

I ration these

I haven't checked if a rare new one has appeared lately- I limit my consumption rate so I don't use them up too fast. It's nice to hear a fresh voice in science fiction with humor- not horror.

DJ- have you considered a serial?

Uncle Snort ,

Try it, you'll like it!

I will admit to being a little skeptical, oh yeah another writer that wants to podcast ho hum. Thing is, this guy really is a good writer. Plus, the recording production company & voice actors are really & truly broadcast quality. I'm a long haul trucker in the U.S. & Mr. Burnham has helped me stay awake through 35 states. 'Cmon D.J., I got more loads to deliver, how am I gonna be on time without more stories to listen to?

Lady Magoo ,

Fantastically Fun Short Fiction

I thought this podcast was excellent. I thought I was the only one that caught the term "misunderestimated" but I guess I was wrong. Thank you for also catching such a horrible misuse of the English language. Please keep up the great writing and keep supplying us with more and more excellent fiction.
