Heart of Clay: A Saint Darwin’s Spiritual

Ever since Saint Darwin returned with harvested seeds from an Egyptian bush that wouldn’t burn, golem constables have worked alongside human and ghost inspectors. They patrol England’s cobblestone streets together, keeping them safe from the monsters the patron saint of scientists exposed to the world. But when inanimate golems are being trafficked by a shadowy group of businessmen dressed up in wicked smiles and sharp teeth, it’s up to the Paranormal Patrol’s newest created member – Constable Lump – to go undercover in the gaslit night and learn where his missing brethren have vanished to, without sacrificing his newfound life getting the answers.

Our Fourth Anniversary – sort of

Hi everyone. This post was supposed to be a celebration of our fourth anniversary, on our anniversary. Unfortunately for us, Variant Frequencies was off-line for a week and a half, we were unable to post this on the actual anniversary. Thank you to everyone who stuck with us.

On January 24th, 2006, Variant Frequencies was born. It is hard to believe that we have been going for over four years now. Many things have happened in those four years.

We started out as a showcase of the writing by Matt Wallace and Anne Stringer. Our first story was written by Matt Wallace. Another Man’s Run was released in two parts.

Another Man’s Run – part 1

Another Man’s Run – part 2

Our second story was another Matt Wallace piece. Absolution Insured was not only a great story, but it won a Parsec Award for Best Short Story. Not bad for only the second story that we produced.

Absolution Insured

After that was the beginning of the ground breaking “The Failed Cities Monologues” by Matt Wallace. This dystopian tale was told from the perspective of eight characters. It was critically acclaimed, and also appeared on Podiobooks.com.

The Failed Cities Monologues 01: Ethan

Our first story written by Anne Stringer was “Evelyn.” Evelyn, actually is two stories in one podcast episode. It is two short stories called “Any Other Name,” and “Evelyn.” Both stories are narrated by Stacey Griffith Livingston.

Evelyn

Over the next three years, we added more authors and won three more Parsec Awards.

Now, in our fifth season, we are bringing you even more great stories.

Thank you for listening to Variant Frequencies. We hope you have found our stories to be entertaining.

A Real Christmas

It’s Christmas Eve. Private detective, Dan Taylor is contemplating his past and his future, or lack of one. Then a potential client comes to his door.

The Failed Cities: Hath a Darkness 08 – Doctor Lady

A woman with no name and a past filled with mistakes to atone for. If you’re hurt or sick on the wrong side of the river, the Doctor Lady will fix you up. Tender mercies are the hardest commodities to come by in the Failed Cities, but there are stockpiles if you know where to look…

The Failed Cities: Hath a Darkness 07 – Truck

Any job that involves high-risk and high-speed is right up Truck’s alley, at least for the right price. And it doesn’t get higher in the risk department than piloting a high-tech big rig up mountain switchbacks in a freezing snowstorm. At least until you add one Feral Twin into the mix…

The Failed Cities: Hath a Darkness 06 – Ferus

When you look up on Christmas Eve and see a shape streaking across the night sky above the Failed Cities, it’s not Santa’s sleigh, it’s death incarnate, also known as Ferus…

The Failed Cities: Hath a Darkness 05 – Operative 853

Like Santa Claus, The Nicodemus Consortium has their own sack of gifts to distribute on Christmas Eve. Unlike St. Nick, however, the Consortium is willing to do whatever, and whoever it takes to retrieve their stolen merchandise. And Operative 853 is no elf…

The Failed Cities: Hath a Darkness 03 – Sterne

Sterne, the hardboiled wordslinger, doesn’t believe in Christmas stories. He’d certainly never write such a tale. Living thru one, however, well that’s another story altogether…
