It would make things alot less expensive and I wouldn’t have to drive the truck that breaks down every two months.

But it led to one big problem for me, the story was US-culture centred – Proms/cars/dates – which is not how I’d see the world if Hitler had been in charge til 1972. I guess this might be more of a problem for a non-US citizen. I’m British BTW.

Thought the story was so so, I just couldn’t suspend my believe enough to buy into growing cars, my brain was too distracted on how they would work knowing how complex a real car is. Nice concept that I don’t think translated too well into a story.

Not nearly as professional as Escape Pod, and sometimes he rambles on a bit, but I find that players of Guild Wars are generally interested. Go check it out.

It would have been nice to have had more of a conclusion or a point to the story.

What there was was quite nicely written although I thought there was a faint echo on the audio as if it was being narrated in a small room?

Sorry but overall I felt this was substandard.

Tobias has my interest perked, given the odd tale. As always, you’ve made a good choice with the short story to be read. It’s great to see surresl fiction like this, being picked up by Escapepod. Thanks again!

Oh, and nice Twisp and Catsby reference at the end. These steaks are, indeed, tender.

I really like the selection of what detail was included and what wasn’t, the way the coffee table broke and the desciption of the panels.

I really like the idea of cars growing as plants.

And wow, that seemed really short. Was it really short, or was I just losing track of time?
