Today we present Tom Howard’s story, The Long Cut. Tom is a short story writer from Little Rock, Arkansas. Of this story Tom says, “My four children are the inspiration for this story as I was frequently lost when they were little, and they would ask, ‘Dad, is this another one of your long cuts?’ It made perfect sense to them that if a short cut got you there faster, a ‘long cut’ would get you there much, much slower. Cheeky monkeys.”
Your narrator today is the fabulous Norm Sherman. Norm is the host and editor of the weird and wonderful — and Parsec award winning — Drabblecast, which publishes “strange stories by strange authors for strange listeners, such as yourself.” In addition he is the editor and co-host of the long running science-fiction podcast EscapePod. Both podcasts server excellent fare, some of it quite adult.
His smooth tones may be heard in many places in the pod-o-sphere such as PodCastle, The Guild of the Cowry Catchers, The Fullcast Podcast and many other fine audio productions. You can find Norm in many places online such as Facebook.
