Tex’s Last Run

    My girlfriend and I listened to this tonight on the couch. We both liked it. Congrats to Jonathan on another top notch story, and of course to the folks at Variant Frequencies for another great job.

    Thank you Michael, and you weren’t even listening to the full effect. There was a whole music track missing from that file. I’m uploading the corrected one now.

    I loved this story, from start to finish, so much so that I started to dread the fact that it was going to end. Some great Characterisation, especially the eponymous Tex.

    I’m a first time listener. I really enjoyed this story, but the climactic music got a little too loud for me to fully understand what was going on. I thought the husband had been eaten.

    Other than that, really nice. Will they take Tex & Co with them when they leave the planet? I demand a sequel!

    Like Patrick, I’m a first-time listener here. I liked the sound effects and music. Overall, thought it was well put-together. And the story was good. So yay!

    This was a fantastic story! I’ve only just started listening to audio stories and I find that it’s hard for me to pay attention. (Books are so much easier.) But, this story had me listening to every word until the end. Well done!

    Thanks Sandi. We really enjoyed creating this story. It was a fun one to work with.
