The Burning Bush

OMFG. Go download this fantastic story, written by Jennifer Pelland, read by Deborah Green. Best short story EVAR. An excerpt:

“The thing is,” he said, gesturing at the book, “there’s no proof in here. It’s all just faith. My scientific mind demands rational proof!”

“What will it take?” I asked. “A burning bush?”

And then my pubic hair caught fire.

Warning: if your sense of humor regarding religion is lacking, if you are squeamish about slang referents to a woman’s pubic mound, or if you are a devout Catholic, you might want to pass on this one. I doubt that very many of my readers fall in any of these categories, though, so go download and have fun. Not work-safe.

If you like this story, consider subscribing to the Escape Pod podcast, where you can listen to other fantastic short stories by published Sci-Fi authors. I know I dig it.

  1. OK, I was drinking coffee right about the time I read the last line. You are personally responsible for me almost choking to death. I hope you’re happy.

  2. *giggles uncontrollably*

    Can’t you wait to go download it now?! I had at least half a dozen of those moments during the story. 😀

  3. I was just Googling myself (I’m so vain!) and ran across your page. Thanks so much! I’m glad you enjoyed the piece.
