Storyblogging Carnival LX

Welcome to the sixtieth Storyblogging Carnival. This time we have ten stories by nine authors, including one of my own which I never got around to submitting.

People have done better this time around sending me blurbs for their stories. Thanks, guys, and I apologize for being impolite about it earlier. Now, rather than wasting my time ranting, on to the stories.

Postcard #2 Spirit Antarctica
by Karyn Hunting of Reason-and-Rhyme
A 467 word brief story rated PG.

Echoes of memories of a last half of the last raisonette shared in Antarctica never sounded so delicious! And even the cold and the splash and the dive had to have been worth it!

Chew on This
by Laurence Simon of this blog is full of crap
A 500 word brief story rated R.

This is a twisted tale of the realities of modern Halloween ruination.

Adventures of an Unlikely Super Hero (Part One): Ambition — For a Woman?!
by Laura Young of Dragon Slayer's Guide to Life
The first 547 words of a story in progress rated PG.

This story was published in Become Your Own Great and Powerful. It's the tale of a woman and her relationship with power.

by Anna O. of Anna O.: The Talking Cure
A 613 word brief story rated G.

Short story about a young artist grappling with her neurosis' and her struggle to differentiate between dreams and waking life.

yellow pillow case
by Anna O. of Anna O.: The Talking Cure
A 618 word brief story rated PG.

A short story played out in the narrative of a young woman's mind about change vs. consistency in relationships and life. In a universal sense, it's about the constant readjustments we all have to continually make in order to keep moving forward.

A Squirrely Lesson
by Madeleine Begun Kane of Mad Kane's Humor Blog
A 739 word brief story rated PG.

Madeleine Kane's home is invaded by a squirrel, and the exterminator doesn't want to pay a house call. What's a poor feminist to do?

Mist Magic, Parts 15-20 (Beginning)
by Dave Gudeman of Doc Rampage
The latest 1,493 words of a 5,485 word story in progress rated PG.

This is the story I was told by the mystery-man about how magic entered the world in the early bronze age.

Untold Onward Drawn - Part 2 - The Departure (Beginning)
by The Rocketman of The Rocketman's Change For A Dollar
The next 1,583 words of a 3,345 word continuing story rated PG.

"Untold Onward Drawn" is the (fairy-tale?) story of two happenstance travelers and the result of their supernatural encounter during a bit of primitive mythological archaeology. Part 1 was posted in an earlier edition of Storyblogging. I originally had no further plans for the piece; however, I recently took to the idea of continuing it. Part 2 of this installment was written just as the first - extemporaneously. Any subsequent entries will be added in the same whimsical manner. It's been great fun to write. Enjoy.

Es ist Schwer
by Postmodern Sass of Postmodern Sass
A 1,700 word short story rated PG.

"This is the story of my grandfather, who died, and how a little piece of him came back to me, 25 years later."

This concludes the sixtieth Storyblogging Carnival.
