For one week starting Saturday, all four of my chapbooks – ANAGNORISIS, REVISIONARY, DECISIONS, and DUTIES – will be on 99 cent sale! Now is the time to pick up quick, illustrated spooky, horror, and fantasy stories! (Each book has four stories, approximately 32K words total, each with an illustration drawn for the story itself). Now is the time to buy!
…Well, tomorrow is the time to buy. But you know what I mean.
I know I just did one, but this is fun, too. It could be easily adapted into a full hour TV episode, too. A lot of these are their right length already, but LABORATORY CONDITIONS clearly got stripped down to its essentials. I’d like to see a longer version.
This is one of DUST’s better (and creepier!) short films, and that’s saying something. I’m not embedding the video because the thumbnail for IT CAME NAMELESS IN SPRING is a total spoiler for the ending, though. Didn’t stop me from enjoying it, but hopefully you’ll get the full effect this way.
Mostly on what I’ll have to do to get it up to DriveThru RPG POD standards. The answer was “Do some rearranging, add the usual What is a Roleplaying Game? and the not-so-usual What is this game really about?, fix some of the formatting, and get a decent character sheet together.” All plus the costs to do it, which weren’t horrible. I didn’t think they would be, but I needed a baseline.
I was also given the recommendation to do up as a Kickstarter to cover the costs for getting it ready for print, but if that happens it’d be something for 2023. We’ll see.
I agree with GeekTyrant: Warner Bros would never make this in a million years. Which is a shame, because 1987: BLOOD OF THE BAT would make for a killer (heh) Batman flick. Something that determinedly retro would be pretty cheap to make, too. Alas…
