A Short Story and Hot Flash #99!

Dusty Plastic HELL: Hot Flash #99 is more a humorous re-imagining of events than an actual occurrence — I did receive two calls (last night and tonight) from the same person looking for Bruce, but the caller was fairly polite and I didn’t do the Batman thing. Still, these wrong numbers to my cell are getting ridiculous. In the past couple of weeks I’ve gotten not only the aforementioned calls, but also several calls from folks speaking in Spanish and even one call from a local Michaels store (apparently another local Michaels has the same number, but a different area code)! If I really were Batman and this were the ’60s, Commissioner Gordon and Gotham City would be fucked because I would totally unplug the Batphone. The Bat-Signal is much better because it makes no noise.

And, as noted, we also have a short story for you — an allegorical tale entitled “Mold Country”. Like most of the stories on the site, it’s an older piece that I was unable to get published in a paying rag, but I still think that it’s a worthwhile (if rather brief) read. Enjoy!

In other news, this weekend saw the airing of the absolute worst Doctor Who episode of all time. It was truly abysmal.


Someone should have burned that script. 👿

    Hmm…why are the Dr. Whos getting worse? Why do you think?

    I know it’s an allegory, but EW! I am allergic to penicillin–I would have been a very unlucky, short-lived citizen of Mold County.

    Not having a cell phone, I don’t have these problems, but last year (I think), Mom recieved multiple calls from this fellow who spoke Spanish. They only stopped after she threatened to call the police.

    Some people…
