Episode 36 - Too Far by Rich Shapero

78 minutes

Ah, yes - remember being in love so fiercely that you disobeyed your parents, ran naked through the forest all evening, worshiped nature gods, and contacted the multiverse when you were SIX YEARS OLD? No? Yeah...probably not.

Rich Shapero takes us on another drug fueled romp through the wilds of Alaska in this successor to Wild Animus, except this time the main characters are two six year old children.

While this tale is pretty weird and there are major problems with the children's dialogue, there is actually some decent writing and even the bone fragments of a good story. Shapero still doesn't get it quite right, but there's some evidence to suggest that he could produce a solid novel in the future which may be the scariest revelation of all from Too Far.
