09 – A Punch In The Face, Persephone Speaks & Faithful Weeds

Welcome to the ninth episode of The Short Story Cast, the penultimate episode of the first series. This one is packed with stories, three to be precise. One by me, James Winterbottom, and two by guest contributors. I hope you enjoy them.

A Punch In The Face by James Winterbottom

A man receives a knock at the door, it’s his punch in the face. He’d voted for it months before but didn’t think it would lead to anything happening. This is a ham-fisted attempt at political satire. Apologies if you’re pro-Trump or pro-Brexit as it may offend your political leanings.

Persephone Speaks by Lynn Bauman-Milner

A fresh take on Greek mythology from Lynn Bauman-Milner. A tale of many headed beasts and family disputes.
