Yeah, so...other than Native Americans prone to magical thinking, where was the fantasy in this story? Also, let me cheer the change in theme music from the Enya ear-vomit to the new stuff. It's much, much more tolerable.

Ack!!! Somehow I added this comment to the wrong post. *face palm* This was in response to "Hotel Astarte", not Pahwahke. Mea culpa!! Any chance a kindly sysadmin can move it?

I personally didn't like this one much at all. The characters never grabbed me and never 'popped' into being for me, and the plot felt pretty thin. I found myself zoning out a few times as I listened to it, so perhaps I missed something, but to me the plot felt like: Thug hired to kidnap woman. Uses seduction methods to lure her away. Falls in love with her and gets her pregnant, so never hands her over to his employers. They punish him. 20 years later he collects the son to go take his revenge on those employers. Take that plot, sprinkle some magic on it, hook it into real world events, and that felt like all I was getting. I might have been more kindly inclined towards it if it hadn't followed the Ant King story, which was also of this "fantasy realism" genre. I hope we get back to more traditional fantasy with fresh new worlds soon. Contrary to the previous commenter, I enjoyed the intro, and in fact it was my favorite part of this episode.

The explanation before the story ruined it for me for this story and another I've listened to so far. I felt like I was on the rails of context rather than swimming in the sea of my own imagination. I am also a huge fan of this opening music over the previous music. The previous song's vocals interfered with your narration which made it difficult to hear you on a busy subway car. Keep up the good work :)

Wasn't sure whether this was originally a folktale or just came out of his head when I reviewed this story after its appearance in Fantasy Magazine; glad of the clarification. ( As I said then-- good stuff! Kudos for getting it "on the air" as it were. Also, I like the variation in opening music....wasn't a fan of the music you started out with as much...this has more energy.

This dark than I was excepting. I love a story that has a real sense of place. I thought this was nicely told.
