Puddle Driver: Chapter 7

Written and read by ApocD In this chapter, something is revealed. How’s that for disclosure? Thanks for listening! The soft light from the jumpship revealed only a faint outline of the thing on the floor. Streis didn’t like what he saw; it had a shape that Streis had never before seen. [...]

Puddle Driver: Chapter 5

Written and read by ApocD. Thanks! The voice was unnatural but the language was real. The message was in Akkadian. No one spoke Akkadian anymore; according to Streis’ implant database, it had been spoken in Sumer thousands of years earlier. He knew the significance of the language as it related to space [...]

Puddle Driver: Chapter 4

Written and read by ApocD. The guy hadn’t even been Australian. How could Streis have missed that? He’d lived in Australia for two years while letting the heat cool down after his little incident on the moon. The guy was probably English. Maybe Scottish. How could he have missed that?

Puddle Driver: Chapter 2

Written and read by ApocD. The Australian.  Why had he even talked to the Australian?  Everyone knew what the Australians were like, never mind the under-educated island of criminals stereotypes:  they were ruthless.  Streis had seen reports on the net that over 90% of the inmates in English prisons were Australians; they just couldn’t stay out [...]

Puddle Driver: Chapter 1

Written and read by Skip Jenkins. It takes some getting used to moving about in zero-G. Limbs do not move the way they do under positive Gs, and the results are often unexpected. When Streis awoke, he was in a fetal position in a slow counterclockwise spin. His head throbbed unbearably, and had he known an [...]
