The conversations in Flash Pulp’s Flash Cast world get darker and funnier each week. This one hops and skips between organ transplants, Star Trek TNG geekery (honestly one of the geekiest conversations about Lesley Crusher I have ever heard), and contributions from the faithful pulpists out there. Featuring my very own pirate tale The Paternal Adventure.
Me pride swells like an excited zeppelin as this sterling Flash Cast gets named from my story within it. There’s an increasingly great selection of reviews within including games and podcasts and some really disturbing true crime history, plus the return of Doc Azrael! All in all a splendid and exciting listen. Featuring The Gastronomical Adventure for your sweet monkey meat eating pleasure…
I’m endlessly delighted to contribute to Flash Pulp’s excellent Flash Cast; I really feel as if my own brand of pulp fiction has a home there. This week (I may be a few behind) they’ve included another Franklyn de Gashe tale (I had a recording spree where I could do the voice), The Recreational Entertainmentwhich is about a man with a vivisected chair on the rampage.
It fits surprisingly well into the pulpy chatter (Tolkein, racist Germans, drug money, Rambo) and with the other segments for game and podcast reviews, disturbing news and darkened corners of history. Share and enjoy!
Reading can be a terrible pest of an activity and I entirely sympathise the general indolence that flourishes throughout our community. As a considerate fellow I feel duty bound to lighten your burden by recording a pair of my adventures upon a wax cylinder and fire them through the webspace at you like auditory torpedoes.
The King’s Cross Entertainment
After a spell in the country I returned to the city and immediately delved into its debauched netherworld.
The Simian Entertainment
My attempts to create the perfect servant rather backfire at the club.
I do hope they fill a void within your aching heart, an ache I would be only to happy to cleave from your suffering flesh.

Life without Flash Pulp would be all but pointless. It’s my many-times-a-week injection of pulp fiction fun followed by a chatty jabbercast of pulp-related information about film, games and more. Sometimes it feels like my only contact with the world I want to be in. And sometimes, I can be in it too! This episode includes another worrying Spot of Bother and my own Frankly de Gashe short story The Primeval Entertainment. Seriously, give it a listen, then subscribe to the whole feed. That reminds me, I need to send them another tale!
In the process of getting my act together after Christmas I recorded several new and old stories for my favourite podcast: Flash Pulp! Last week those good folks saw fit to accept my submission of The Selachian Damsel Adventure which goes down the ear tubes well. I also sent in some feedback and enjoyed listening to Opopanax read it in a fine piratical tone! There are the usual entertainments within – pulp film and TV gossip as well as more creepiness in A Spot of Bother, a fine review of The Hobbit (with damn fine Gollumisms) and a review of the splendidly mean and funny card game Cards Against Humanity. I don’t normally get the time to play card or roleplaying games but this one was coincidentally whipped out in the pub at a friend’s birthday party last Saturday, so it deserves special mention. Gigantor can tell you all about it below.
After a terrible delay I finally got round to contributing to the wondrous Flash Pulp magazine podcast again. I decided to send ‘em another Franklyn de Gashe adventure – this time The Simian Entertainment; it’s a lovely tale of winged monkeys and gentlemen’s clubs. I can only implore you to listen to their podcast on a regular basis for doses of pulpy goodness and entertaining chat about pulp fiction related news and well, stuff. Now featuring game reviews and other marvels!
September 27th, 2012. Twas a magnificent night of music, tales and technological horror. A horror that flowed not just through the sound deck of impossibility but into the ears of the microphones and the eyes of the camera. In consequence, I’ve mainly audio of a size so vast that I cannot place it anywhere.
And so we’ve none of the sound for the three tales I opened the evenin’ with (though me gestures’re charming and I could dub it poorly), and in matchin’ fashion none of the video (save the side of Misk Hills’ face) for the last hour when the lads and lass were forced to descend unto the punters for the unamplified making of music. Never mind…
The lovely folk of The Golden Fleece were most accommodating and we drank much of their beer.
A Mermaid’s Fishiness
Avast! I have however sliced out this snippet of the Mermaid’s Tale and present it to ye in a format visual:
Misk Hills & Minin’ Bill Kerry
Here be a longer segment featuring Kazoo madness with the Misk Hills Mountain Rambler and Minin’ Bill Kerry III and another yarn, though I fear I’ve broken me internet by uploading it. Gaargh. The audio’s all too huge (for Reverbnation) and beautiful and I’ve about an hour of the wonders which The DH Lawrence & Vaudeville Skiffle Show brought to the proceedings. I’ll be having a thunk about how to make that fit in ye computerised ears. If ye have any suggestions me one good ear lies ajar.
Want Ye To Listen More?
For now though I urge ye to seek out me wondrous musical compatriots and show ‘em ye full love:
I’m running out of ways to say how much I enjoy Flash Pulp and their many times a week outpourings of fresh pulp fiction. So… Gaargh! This week I had no pirate tale to spin into the microphone so I indulged myself and hopefully others by sharing a spot of Franklyn de Gashe – timetraveller, Victorian gentleman, poet and serial killer. The podcast is great and Franklyn’s The Kings Cross Entertainment fits in surprisingly well with some of the other peculiar contributions and dicsussions. Viva la Flash Pulp!
Gaargh! Well how can I not approve of that episode title? Shanking for GB right now… And I’m at least a week behind with this, but then I’m more than a week behind listening to the pulpish marvels put forth by @SkinnerCo in their weekly FlashCast (never mind the endless stream of high quality pulp fiction shenanigans, cartoons and wonder). This FlashCast includes The Bloodsoaked Adventure (a dark tale of being hunted by an armada and beasts in the fog) and another remarkably dark Bothersome Thing from Jeff Lynch.
Ahar mates – I keep forgettin’ to remind ye that I’ve been recording me tales on a ball o’ twine and a magnetic banana for ye listening pleasure, should you be too busy or lazy to read. This is me tribute to one of the finest science fiction authors, the wonderful John Wyndham Parkes Lucas Beynon Harris – a lengthy but worthy name for so fine an author.
And so – ye may listen to The Triffic Adventure, or read it below:
Gaargh, I awoke from a night o’ disturbin’ dreams. We’d been swiggin’ vodka for a change, since takin’ it off Danish merchants just after dawn. Me final memory o’ that night were haulin’ Billy aboard after ‘e leapt from the bow to catch a shootin’ star. Yarr, all night the sky’d been full o’ light streakin’ down as if aimin’ for the giant crabs crawlin’ across ye sea-bed. ‘Twere pretty, like a rainbow on fire, though technically it boded ill for us all. Read more…
Gaargh, I’m back on ye Flash Cast! Tis just a short warning on this occasion and I am but a week late in the posting of it!
Listen to it now:
The wondrous folk of Flash Pulp have once more been content to add one of me gentle tales of oceanic erotica to their splendid pulp magazine show. Aye that’s right, me party favourite The Mermaid’s Tale can be in your ears in moments:
Gaargh, a short while ago I bought a fancy new microphone recording contraption and have been cheerfully allowing it to hoover up me word noises. Most of it’s going on the reverbnation.com\captainpigheart page but such is the fun and greatness of Flash Pulp I thought it would be cool to sort of premiere the stories in their Flash Casts whenever they find a gap to fill in their diverse schedule. Well here’s the next one:
