AntipodeanSF
AntipodeanSF podcast/radio show is devoted to the presentation of flash speculative fiction stories (science fiction, fantasy, and horror). AntiSF is where speculative fiction belongs -- downside-up!
Peacock

I, for one, did not know that there was a star called Peacock. And now you're listening to the AntipodeanSF Radio Show Peacock. Hi, I'm Nuke, your host and editor, and they tell me that by using reasonably reliable parallax measurement techniques, that Alpha Pavonis is about 180 light years distant. And, yes, you guessed it, it's the brightest of the stars in the constellation of Pavo, another Southern group that's only visible in the Antipodes, relatively close to the constellation of Telescopium.

But don't quote me on that. I think Peacock is one of those stars that leads a close in double life.

In this show, however, you get not two, but three times the fun. Go to another world and experience hunger, perhaps eat a severed finger, but all of it with good intentions.

Watch out for those jellyfish. Hi, I'm Nuke, sometimes known as the "Jollyfish", nothing like a jelly, and this is the AntipodeanSF Radio Show Alhena. To name alter egos, we could call it Gamma Geminorum, the third brightest brightest star in the constellation of Gemini. We've been through the other two, and now we're down to thirds.

Speaking of thirds, not enders, we have three stories in this show. One of them by the ever anonymous but biting Zeb Carter, another weird offering from Tom Grayhorse, and something equally spooky from Sean Mulroy.

Grab your telescope, but don't deploy it yet. I need your ears. It's fiction time, and time for you to get entangled with the government employment service to look for a job in a junkyard looking for hatracks, but to ultimately discover human shaped objects hiding in the piles of trash.

Avior

There's a case to be made in favour of this being the AntipodeanSF Radio Show Avior. Not happy to be single, Epsilon Carinae decided to be double, and to make it known so at a distance of at least 5 or 6 hundred light years, and only visible to us Southern Antipodeans. So bright, so intense, so wonderful in its separation. Hi, I'm Nuke, thanks for joining me for another AntipodeanSF Radio Show.

No double stars here in the show, however. This is a single feature issue, one story, one trek, one track, and one narrative to follow.

Sargas

G'day and welcome to the AntipodeanSF Radio Show Sargas, also known as Theta Scorpii, the lovely far star that's fifth along the tail, forming the hook of Scorpio's deadly stinger.

And stinging, not singing, is what we're all about here at AntiSF. This is the first of the series of shows to feature stories from Issue 197. Hmmm. 198, 199, 200 — almost there! As you listen, keep in mind that I'm Nuke, your host and editor, and I'm about to bring you four downside-up stories in audio that just might hook into and poison your thoughts -- for just a moment at least.

Stick with me. Ignore the poison. It's meant to be subversive. After all, it's summer, and it's a warm treat today that will lead us to the outer edges of the galaxy of reputation, leaving somebody feeling like an idiot, but that's just the way it is, in reality, or even in unreality.

Alkaid

Genre defines, but don't let that be a limitation. G'day and welcome, this is the AntipodeanSF Radio Show Alkaid, the most Eastern of stars in the Big Dipper, not a constellation that we're familiar with here in the Antipodes. We have Crux, though. And the crux of this matter is that I'm Nuke, your host and editor, and I'd like to thank you for joining me for the fifth of our shows in the month of November 2014, all celebrating Issue 196 of AntipodeanSF online, and including rather more than a few flashbacks to past issues and authors, something that's a focus here as we get ever closer to our celebratory Issue 200. But wasn't I talking about genre, and crossing the boundary? Let's take a science fiction horror, even if it doesn't sound that way to begin with (which is where the horror really lies, right there in the unexpected), let's also take a science fiction religious extrapolation and get it covered in irony, and let's see what we can do about science fiction humour and have a poke at manifest destiny all in the one show.

Wezen

G'day fellow lovers of speculation in fiction. This is indeed the AntipodeanSF Radio show, this one designated Wezen, yellow supergiant of the constellation of the big dog, almost 2000 light years away as the radio and light and x-rays fly. They're not getting this show yet.

Are you? Thanks for joining me, by the way, I'm Nuke, host and editor, and this show features exclusively flashback material from past issues of AntiSF. Stick with me to hear them narrated for the first time ever, and I promise to elucidate something about the mating season, to help you get absolutely nothing out of homeopathic warriors, and give you some cringe about dimensional excrement.

Mirfak

Warning. Speculative fiction is liable to get inside your head. That's a dangerous place for anything to be. So do be careful. Some of the stories in today's show may have that tendency. This is the AntipodeanSF Radio Show Mirfak, brightest star in the constellation of Perseus, a supergiant in the last stages of its evolution. Stars evolve? Of course they do. Some of them into radio programs.

Kaus Australis

Salutations, fellow lovers of speculative fiction. Hi, I'm Nuke, the host and editor of this show, which happens to be the AntipodeanSF Radio Show Kaus Australis. Working our way down that star list.

We're also working our way through the stories from Issue 196 in this month of November, which also happens to have five weeks, so we will feature a number of flashbacks in later shows. Today, though, three features from the pages of 196 in which are scavenged large potato rocks, perhaps wet with hot water, causing us plenty of sadness and grief that may require counselling.

Dubhe

Greetings, flying potatoes and all, it's Radio Show Dubhe, from Issue 196. Strike, Issue 200 looms with a vengeance — and it's coming together well. There's still room for more, though, and I urge you all to get those submissions in soon. Perhaps you and your story will be selected to form a part of the celebration of Australia's longest running online speculative fiction e-zine. I'd especially like to see submissions from those with first-time publication credit with AntiSF. There are many of you out there. Similarly, I'm calling for submissions from those with a former history of regular contribution. In the meantime, it's storytime for fiction from Issue 196 of AntipodeanSF.

Welcome and thanks for joining me. I'm Nuke, your host and editor, but please don't let me be your guide. You're on your own here in the realms of speculation, and it's down to you to work out whether you'll get your money back, discover the gods of the gaps, or meet the mushroom cloud of alternate history.
