The Dollar Short is our podcast project for 2016. Every month, we read one of the great short stories, then write our own, inspired by the source material.

Alastair fell of the horse in February and hasn’t yet caught up, but Lani has two amazing stories to share: the first inspired by Italo Calvino’s The Light Years, the second by Margaret Atwood’s Stone Mattress.

The Second Doctor

If you’d like to talk about the stories, or if you have your own to share, then head on over to the StoryWonk forum. We’ll be back on Tuesday with a brand-new episode, and a new story to discuss!
