    Drabbleclassics 26 – Unreliable Witness (235)

    I don’t know if this is the same tape as last time, because They keep moving things around and stealing them. I don’t know who does it. It may be the staff here, or my own family when they come to visit, or the aliens, but somebody’s always doing it — taking my glasses, my […]

    Drabbleclassics 25 – Charlie the Purple Giraffe Was Acting Strangely (113)

    A change came over Charlie then, like a cloud passing in front of the sun.  He placed his hands flat in his lap, straightened his neck, and took a deep breath.  “Us,” he said at last.  “They read us.” A delightful Drabble evokes a sage summation of the style from Norm: the mark of a […]

    Drabbleclassics 24 – Cinderlands (176)

    Dexter crouched beneath the toxic fruit trees in his grassless back yard, turning over black earth with the spade he’d taken from the old man, and every shovelful revealed worse things: clumps of cinders and the dust of ashes; rusting nails, practically dripping tetanus; wickedly-curved shards of brown glass; bullets of various sizes, crusted with […]

    Drabbleclassics 23 – Synesthesia (92)

    They called  it “Synesthesia.”  It’s when the senses got mixed up and you started to hear colors or taste sounds… Norm begins this with a warning concerning graphic violence and gore. We return to one of the Drabblecast’s favorite topics, the Zombie Apocalypse. The theme receives a fresh airing, which is just as well, as […]

    Drabbleclassics 22 – Go Beep (173)

    I’m a fan of Nirvana. I mean I’m a fan of the band rather than a fan of the concept. Although, hey, what’s not to like about the idea of being no longer subject to torture over the fires of greed, hatred and delusion? Free from all suffering – yes, that sounds pretty good. But […]

    Drabbleclassics 21 – Mongoose : Part II (171)

    You couldn’t describe a rath. You couldn’t even look at one for more than a few seconds before you started getting a migraine aura. Rovers were just blots of shadow. The breeder was massive, armored, and had no recognizable features, save for its hideous, drooling, ragged edged maw. Irizarry didn’t know if it had eyes, […]

Insane, Original and Spectacular

Norm and his insane (both weird and nerdy) Drabblecast crew consistently create some of the best literary podcasting available today. Comprising both the horror and sci-fi genres upon first glance, one learns to appreciate (or not) Norm's great sense of humor and the truly original ways in which he manifests it.
Norm is a gifted and creative musician and storyteller who finds other wonderful storytellers to tell their tales to us, much to our benefit.
Thank you for your fabulous work, Norm!
