Storyblogging Carnival XXXVII

NOTE: Another re-post of an old carnival, so I can't guarantee links.

Welcome to the thirty-seventh Storyblogging Carnival, a collection of storytelling in blog format from around the blogosphere.

I was a bit worried when Thursday rolled around and I only had I only had three entries, including my own, but my fellow bloggers rallied to my help (which is a euphemism for saying that they gave in to my whining), and we have a total of nine stories this week.

Not Being
by Goemagog of this space for sublet
A 290 word brief story rated G.

I hope Kafka would have liked it.

[With only 144 words, it's hard to say much without giving it away. But it's possibly the most surreal thing Goemagog's ever written, and my new favorite of his. -DSC]

Dr. Tundra Forsakes the Flying Spaghetti Monster
by Mark Rayner of The Skwib
A 450 word brief story rated PG-13.

This is a humorous sequal to the alternate history tale Dr. Tundra in the Dock, following the misguided doctor's time in the "Reeducation Retreat". Some sexual content.

Ink Magic (Part 7) (Beginning)
by Dave Gudeman of Doc Rampage
The latest 1,202 words of a 14,538 word short story in progress rated PG.

Our hero learns to use the graviscope to spy on the demonic entities that are spying on him.

[Ooh, old computers and odd devices are always fun. Plus there's a really freaky revelation. -DSC]

Rampage in a Spa
by Dave Gudeman of Doc Rampage
A 1,963 word short story rated PG-13.

James Frey set the standard; all I did was follow it in this poignant and rivetting but completely emotionally true account of my first (and probably last) visit to a hot-springs spa with a companion who was not entirely of my own choice.

[This story rocked! It was funny and ridiculous and completely true, emotionally. It continues Doc's series on his adventures in Morocco. -DSC]

Benoni , Part One
by Adam Graham of Adam's Blog
A 2,234 word short story rated PG.

A man plunges into despair and bitterness after September 11th. Two years, as his wife lays on an operating table, he must come to terms with his feelings and faith.

[This time it's Adam, not Andrea, who's sharing a story at Adam's Blog. It's a different story, and quite powerful. -DSC]

A Sad Tale from Skuddledump
by Lyn Perry of Bloggin' Outloud
A 2,630 word short story rated G.

A retelling of the Garden of Eden.

[This is a delightful story, the Garden of Eden as a modern high rise apartment building. I liked it. -DSC]

Part 3, Chapters 14 and 15 of The Child (Beginning)
by Sheya Joie of Tales by Sheya
The latest 4,385 words of a 117,858 word novel in progress rated PG-13.

During the report at the end of their second day of scouting in the enemy's fortress, Stone recounts a very eventful day - explaining his nasty shiner among other things - as well as shedding just a touch of murky light on his own dark past in this deepest dungeon.

Chapters 21 and 22 of Britannia Revived (The Whole Story)
by Andrew Ian Dodge of Dodgeblogium
The next 7,794 words of a continuing story rated R.

The story of an EU dystopia continues.

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.
