Cossmass Infinities 6: – “How You Make The Straight”

June 1, 2010

The cop was bluffing—you didn’t have to be a psyche to work that out. With three spades already on the table, she was trying to fake a flush, but her eyes betrayed her: too manic, too desperate. Mink sensed the cards she clutched were a nine of hearts and an ace, probably a spade. That’d get her a pair of nines—an okay hand, sure, but not when Mink’s employer could make the straight.

Mink smiled and slid a hand under the table, pressing her knuckles twice against Sampson’s upper thigh. It was a prearranged signal, something she’d worked out with the conman months ago; it meant: Break her.

‘I’m feeling lucky,’ said Sampson. ‘Maybe I’ll call you.’

BrokenSea Audio Reaches Out To The Fans

Doctor Who fans may have a great opportunity to flex their creative muscles. It seems BrokenSea Audio Productions  is taking submissions from the fans and giving them an opportunity to write an episode of their Doctor Who series. Broken Sea recently issued this plea for submissions:

<<<>>>

Here’s a unique opportunity for Doctor Who fan-fiction writers. We have ONE episode slot open for our September 2011 episode of Doctor Who. I’ve decided to let fans of our version of Doctor Who write this episode. It can be in the form of a short story – or a radio play script (check the BBC writers room for a template)

The only requirements are:

– It is a stand alone story (complete plot in one episode 30-50 pages long) and features Mark Kalita’s incarnation of The Doctor and his current companion Amanda Waterfield.*

*Amanda Waterfield is a strong and capable English girl in her early 20’s who has a knack for mechanical and engineering wizardry.

– The plot must deal with an historical or futuristic event that has been disrupted (eg: The Roman Empire has modern tanks, the South has won the US Civil War etc) and the Doctor’s efforts to manage this change in time.

Check BrokenSea Audio for our previous episodes. Scripts or stories that can be adapted to scripts in by June 30th thanks.

Any questions and submissions should be emailed to: paul <at> brokensea <dot> com.

But now one of the Eyes of Doom has fallen prey to a master thief, and the second is under the protection of a certain masked mystery man.

Audio Drama In The Mainstream Press

Final Rune Productions finds itself on The Street… The Wall Street Journal!

Find the Wall Street Journal article Here. Getting exposure like this, is a great thing. Articles in major newspapers get people noticing that not only is this type of thing still being made… but made well.

Congratulations Fred! If your a listener or reader who hasn’t heard any of Mr Greenhalgh’s work, check out Final Rune Productions and Radio Drama Revival, now!

Roger Ebert stands by for adventure with Decoder Ring Theater!

A sharp eyed fan of Decoder Ring Theater discovered a surprise while checking their Twitter feed. Noted Film Critic Roger Ebert apparently Twittered about (and probably listens to) Decoder Ring Theater home of The Red Panda, Masked Marvel of 1930’s Toronto and that hard boiled 1930’s gumshoe, Black Jack Justice!

Heres the Tweet. NOTE: You’ll probably need to be signed up with Twitter to see it.

A heartfelt congratulations goes out to Gregg Taylor and all the hard working folks at Decoder Ring Theater. Way to go guys and thanks for the hours of entertainment over the years!

Campaign

Can Audio Drama help make the world a better place?… Possibly.

If your a soldier stationed thousands of miles from home and facing long stretches boredom, hearing Audio Dramas from home might help. Maybe even alot. A group of audio drama producers has banded together to see if they can make a difference. The idea is simple: send 10,000 CDs containing hours of audio drama to help fill the long hours of boredom in the field, frequently experienced by our military men and women.

Its a small thing, and even a small donation will help… Wont you Donate Now?
