AntiSF is where speculative flash fiction belongs - downside up!


Nov 15, 2011

Welcome, fellow improbables to the AntiSF radio Show, 161 Beta, a sweet and crispy cone that's choc full of content that's guaranteed not to melt on your lap.

G'day from down under, if you're up top there, that is. I'm your host and editor, Nuke. Welcome to another episode of the show that delivers the best in flash speculative fiction to your ears from around the cosmos.

In this edition, you're going to hear about some a nasty things, firstly in a story called "Blackflower" by Damien Conn, and then in "Brother" by Jason Butterfield. I also have a fifty worder for you by Steve Duffy, called "Make Yourself a Fresh One Instead". Take heed. You gotta watch that coffee, folks.

Finally, the show is neatly trimmed with a rather horrible dystopian vision from Shaun Saunders in something called "The Patriot", and a lovely Flashback to Issue 143 of AntipodeanSF with "Last Chance" by Des McNicholas -- not to forget a review of "The Sookie Stackhouse Companion" by the inimitable Elizabeth Newman.

So settle back onto that beach towel, drink in the view, and keep listening because it's time for some stories. Short shorts, of course.
