There are points in my day when I want a treat, a small snack or a little bit of delight. Ian Creasey has a collection of audio bon-bons on his website which brought a smile to my face. His humor is wry and often contains a bit of twist at the end as in his short story, Death and Taxes. (Imagine a government tax program which believes that it is God.) Not all of the shorts are conventional stories, so if you favor works with plot, skip straight to The Long Shrink. Otherwise, you might enjoy listening in to the news story about Reality 2.0 The only one that missed its mark for me was Night Shift on the Support Line, which, alas, was a little bit too long to sustain the humor.

Each story is read by the author, a man whose creamily, smooth voice reminds me a bit of the Guide in Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. An impression which is heightened by the reverberation in the recordings.

So, when you need a quick audio fix, drop by Mr. Creasey’s site and listen to one of these short, shorts.
