His name was Marvin Kasselmeier, though he changed it to Marcus Magnus because he thought it sounded more impressive. He’d been a bright student, solitary and humorless, with no friends, and a single obsession: he wanted to live forever… Is eternal …read more
Okay, no one expects eldritch horror in LA. Not that I know what eldritch horror really is. My old boyfriend (about fifteen boyfriends back) called anything that inspired dread “eldritch horror.” I guess that would describe my entire job, really… …read more
Achtromagk shuddered, lost in nightmare images: crimson lightning dotting a wasteland, twilight despair and feeble railings, isolation in a mewling throng. It thrashed and twisted but could not escape, could not stop the unwanted vistas in its mind. It was …read more
I have seen the dark universe yawning Where the black planets roll without aim— Where they roll in their horror unheeded, Without knowledge or lustre or name… To kick of Lovecraft Month Norm once again reads an H.P. Lovecraft classic.
“Planning to live forever, Tiktok?” The words cut through the bar’s chatter and gab and silenced them. The silence reached out to touch infinity and then, “I believe you’re talking to me?” a mech said…
I passed the sign that read Warning: Shark Zone. The sun was setting, lighting up the tops of the condos sticking out of the water. They had been swallowed by the swollen ocean, when it spilled over, like everything else: …read more

Drabblecast RulesThis is one of the most hilarious and awesome podcasts out there. Norm's music, production value, and quality of stories are unmatched. This podcast features science fiction, horror, fantasy and otherwise weird stories. I would rate most of them as PG 13 ish. Norm's Weird News is pretty good and his music is excellent.

Have to pass on this one...Great production and lots of nice touches, like creepy music behind the narration and good fiction. However, the jokes are all groaners and I can't stand the voice of the narrator, Norm Sherman. If you use the words "alas" and "indeed" a lot, you probably won't be rubbed the wrong way as much as I was. I am still looking for a fiction podcast that is creepy but not nerdy. :-(
