Storyblogging Carnival XLIX

This is Storyblogging Carnival XLIX, a collection of storytelling in blog format from around the blogosphere. Rather than wasting time, let's just get to the entries. This week we've got a lot of non-fiction entries, many of them stretching the definition of story a bit. I decided to be lenient, partly because I'm a little short on stories these days.

Brass Blues
by Andrew Ian Dodge of Dodgeblogium
A 100 word brief story rated PG.

Brass is a person not a piece of metal in this tale.

[This reads more like poetry than prose. -DSC]

Why I love Canada: An Immigrant Family's Story
by lecentre of Centrerion Canadian Politics
A 423 word brief story rated PG-13.

My ancestors came from a dangerous place to Canada, and Canada helped them a lot. In contrast to many ungrateful immigrant extremists who would blow Canadians up... while being funded by Canadian welfare.

Osama bin Laden — Give it up man
by Bob Parker of The View From Silverhorn Lodge
A 462 word brief story rated PG.

A view of life from the owner of a mountain lodge.

[A lawn gnome's tale. -DSC]

Bragging on my Little Toddler's Latest Accomplishments
by Lisa of Lil' Duck Duck
A 724 word brief story rated G.

"You see, I wouldn’t want to return to that foggy first year, but I do think it passed by so quickly, and his second year is passing even faster, if that is possible. That’s why I’m setting aside this evening to write about all the things that I just love about him right now, to brag on him a little even."

The Exterminator
by Polly D. Boyette of Life is a Buffet
A 1,190 word short story rated G.

Find out the best way to debug your life.

A Guilding of Lillis, Scene 1
by Dave Gudeman of Doc Rampage
The first 1,854 words of a story in progress rated PG.

The infamous Rolf and Zantar meet for the first time. The subject of Rolf's ears comes up.

[Rolf and Zantar are back! Well, not so much back as appearing for the first time in this prequel, only it isn't a prequel, since it was written first, it just wasn't posted on Doc's blog before, but on his now defunct website. -DSC]

If you'd like to take part in a future carnival, please contact me. I am also looking for hosts. Other carnivals can be found here.
