Creature is a short story by Ramsey Shehadeh that has been made into an audio drama. It has wonder, hope, despair, mystery… all that. The description is rich, the story daring, but what so fascinates me about this story is the author’s ability to think outside the box, to go to a totally difference place… to simply come up with this content.
Below is a link to The Drabblecast website where you can listen to Creature as well as tons of other short stories that have been made into beautifully produced audio dramas. The host’s half-whisper half-growl voice is perfect for reciting these crazy stories. Some have other actors joining in, and there’s the perfect amount of music and effects (not too much to be a distraction). If you like this sort of thing, check it out.
