  1. Improvised Radio Theatre - With Dice: There Would Probably Be Some Aristocratic Totty Involved

    This month, Roger and Mike consider steampunk, the tendency to add magic to everything, and epic games.

    We mentioned GURPS Steampunk 1: Settings and Style, Just Glue Some Gears On It (And Call It Steampunk), Victoriana, Airship Pirates, Castle Falkenstein, the Lippisch (not Horten) powdered-coal ramjet, the Admiralty Fire Control (not Plotting) Table on HMS Belfast, Girl Genius, Mary Sophia Allen, Acoustic aircraft location, Mary Gentle's book 1610: A Sundial in a Grave, Boot Hill, Top Secret, Gangbusters, Traveller, GURPS Technomancer, The Grognard Files, Worlds of Wonder, and Dragonmeet.

    Michael notes that the map he was talking about was the continent of Kanos, from Questworld.

  2. PodCastle 171: The Island of Doctor Death and Other Stories

    Winter comes to water as well as land, though there are no leaves to fall. The waves that were a bright, hard blue yesterday under a fading sky today are green, opaque, and cold. If you are a boy not wanted in the house you walk the beach for hours, feeling the winter that has come in the night; sand blowing across your shoes, spray wetting the legs of your corduroys. You turn your back to the sea, and with the sharp end of a stick found half-buried, write in the wet sand Tackman Babcock.

    Then you go home, knowing that behind you the Atlantic is destroying your work.
