TBM-1810.31 – With Teeth & Other Stories

With Teeth

Description:

#Audio. #Halloween A collection of five short-short stories for the season. Read by the Bathtub Mermaid and Friends.

Excerpt:

I reach around him and grab the bottle from his far hand, then take a swig. “Not bad,” I said. “Tastes like a ninety-nine… maybe a two thousand. Virgin?”

“Virgin,” he confirms. “Two thousand. Carpathian blend. Shall I heat it for you?

“Please.” I go to the couch and wrap a cotton throw around my legs. He joins me a few minutes later, handing me my favorite mug – a smiley-face with fangs – full of steaming liquid. For himself, he’s got scrambled eggs and a hamburger patty. He says protein is essential.

Simmering

 

Description:

In which the Bathtub Mermaid reads a short-short story, Simmering, which is a sequel to Steeping, which she read on this podcast in 2013.

Excerpt:

“The original recipe calls for a cup of blood.” He saw the face she made and smiled sympathetically. “Yeah… not my thing either. But anyway, the secret’s in the simmering.” He said the last word softly, with a hint of innuendo.

“Simmering, huh?” She matched his tone, reaching for the glass that had long since supplanted her mug of tea, and swirled the red wine that remained in it for a moment. Red wine with chicken had been a new concept for her, but the Beaujolais David had served complimented the dish nicely. “Simmering,” she repeated thoughtfully. “Interesting word. Sometimes I feel like that’s what we’ve been doing.”

TMB201409.14 – Sunday Shorts: Opening Day Triptych

Excerpt from Today’s Show:

She noticed that the floor was covered in dusty reddish-brown soil. Marin was beginning to hate the stuff. It was everywhere, tracked into her café by colonists and members of the space corps, and swirling in on its own every time the airlock was activated. She had hoped being under the dome would lessen the dust factor, but it appeared she’d been wrong.
