Top-notch

This recent story, The Last Banquet Of Temporal Confections (two parts) is a favorite of mine and masterful tale, combining fantasy and culinary arts (two things dear to me). Thank you, I very much appreciated this story.

I only discovered this show when they joined the Escape Artists family in 2014, but what an amazing collection of high quality short fiction! They do their best to push boundaries and buttons, and their quality rivals their older sisters - if you want a top notch example of what free, listener-supported, community-made excellence can sound like, you owe it to yourself to check them out.

Not enough to choose from

Unless you go to their actual website, there are only a few very negative stories to choose from.
None of it seems happy or positive. Just a bunch of dark unhappy too quickly read words.
It’s as if they want their listeners to be sad. Or maybe they think if it’s not sad, people won’t listen.
I’m going to try a couple more but I’m just about ready to give up.
