I listen to a lot of SF&F podcasts, but it's been a while since a story grabbed me by the throat. So I was delighted when I found the Drabblecast two-parter Mongoose by Sarah Monette and Elizabeth Bear. It's a tall tale about an itinerant monster hunter and his space cat with strands of Cthulthu, Kipling and Lewis Carroll. Norm Sherman of the Drabblecast gives the story the summer movie treatment with a full cast and some truly gruesome alien sound effects. Four stars.
