Rish Performs "Caveat Emptor..." on Far Fetched Fables

Friends, Far-Fetched Fables is a fabulous farm of fascinating fact, fiction, and folly, follow?


FFF is a podcast that puts out short stories, mostly Fantasy, every every single week.  I don't know how they do it, but hey, I can do a story for them when they ask.


This time, they asked me to narrate "Caveat Emptor, Caveat Venditor" by Edward Ahern.

It's about a wizard named Harald, who--

That's right, Harald.  Oh kids, I had a bugger of a time recording this one, with almost constant repetitions of "said Harold sadly, as he--  I mean, said Harald sadly..."  And even then, about one of every five Harolds I forgot to correct, and I had to decide whether it sounded enough like Harald to get by, or whether I had to rerecord the line.

Anyway, Harald is a failed warlock who teams up with a failed demon, in an attempt to change his stars.  There's some mental telepathy between a human and a supernatural thrall, so I got to play with the audio a bit (and we've got a story coming on the 'steef with a very similar premise).  You can listen to the story at this link!

In Honor of the Least-Necessary Remake Ever

As you may know, the remake of 1991's BEAUTY & THE BEAST comes out today.  So, in "honor" of that, let me repost a certain song from a couple years back.  I guarantee, in this at least, there's no Autotune.

Enjoy?

TGMG 191: You Got the Write Stuff, Baby


Rish 'n Big went to their annual local writers conference, and come out rarin' to go. 

Except Big was already rarin' to go.  Remember California Rish?  Well, meet Hollywood Big.

And yes, that's a New Kids on the Block reference.  If you recognized it, then you are (also) old.

Rish's Voice on "The Eyestalk Kid" on YouTube

A long time ago, I was asked to contribute my voice to Al Bruno III's "The Eyestalk Kid."

Well, it's available, in video form, over at YouTube. The carnival comes to town, and with it a barker wanting fifty dollars to view something called The Eyestalk Kid.  Hilarity does not ensue.
 

I voice Mister Fether, and follow the link to hear the tale.

This is an interesting format to release it in, since it's still totally just an audio file, with a couple of images in the background.  Makes me wonder if I should release a story or two of my own on YouTube, turning the audio into a makeshift video version.

That Gets My Goat 190: February?



Not long ago, Big declared February to be the month he would write every single day.  So Rish decided to do it too.  It's DuPoWriMo!



If you wanna download this episode, just Right-Click HERE. Go ahead, I dare you.

You can find (and throw money at) Rish's Patreon right here.

Rish's First Audio Collection

Hey kids, currently available exclusively on Audible.com is "The Calling: The Audio Fiction of Rish Outfield Volume One."  It's a collection of a dozen or so short stories, narrated by me, and all together in one place.  It also includes a couple of irritating pieces unavailable anywhere else (I believe this was Big's idea, who used to tell me I was wasting my time when I'd write microfiction, unless, as he put it, "you put it into a story collection as a sort of bonus track").


The collection includes an Introduction and:

Stormy Weather  
A Difficult Age
The Cemetery Tale 
Lost and Found 
Brighted 
MagiClaw 
Unconventional 
Sleeptalkin' Gal 
Passing Notes 
Last Night of Freedom 
Trick 
Memory Lane 
The Calling 

 The tiny stories are in italics.

 My pal Gino Moretto created the cover for me . . . and look at that little "volume 1."  What do you think of that?   I will one day get to work on the next volume, trying to include older and brand-new recordings.

In the meantime, check it out if you get the notion.  I know you'll get to like it if you give a chance now.

 Yeah, that was from The Locomotion, what about it?

That Gets My Goat 189: Rogue Fun


Yeah, I know it's not a good title, but NOTHING rhymes with "rogue,"* and to call it "Rogue Scum" or "Rogue None" only works with a really bad movie.

Big and Rish go see the new "Star Wars" movie as soon as it opens, and while they didn't love it as much as you did . . . well, maybe you should just listen to the episode. Spoilers abound, of course.
