100 Words of Astounding Beauty

Jun 23, 2023

A flash-fiction podcast where a handful of writers create an original story with a limited wordcount in a limited amount of time. In this episode we pop a marble in the cultural run by homaging each other's homages.

The stories are:
'The Crab King' by Amelia Armande, an homage to 'Crabalocker' by Paul Davies. 

'Happiness is Just A Warpway Away' by Joshua Crisp, an homage to 'Old Medicine' by Claudia Treacher. 

'The Archaeotheologists' by Paul Davies, an homage to 'Dies Iudicii' by Joshua Crisp. 

'Saurian Wash' by Claudia Treacher, an homage to 'The Last Steak Bake on the Hot Plate' by Tom McNally. 

'Confundamubulus approaches' by Tom McNally, an homage to 'From the Margins' by Amelia Armande.

Featuring listener submissions:
'véttr' by Noah Bradbury

'The Last Bastion of Creativity' by Christopher T. Dabrowski
