The Sound and the Puree
I released this for Thanksgiving week as a celebration of food and music. Unfortunately The servers crashed, and it wasn't released on time. But, here we go! This is another story from my book of short stories, Draw Back the Bow. It's a hard Science Fiction/comedy story, and I'm pretty proud of this one. So you know, it's more PG/R than G, in that there's some mention of the fact that we inhabit delightfully human bodies.  If you like science fiction and fantastic stories, you'll love this book. Only $4.99 on Apple Books! https://books.apple.com/us/book/draw-back-the-bow/id1517241460.  I am proud to have music in this episode from my friend Jon Hammond, jazz keyboardist extraordinare. He was kind enough to let me use Jennifer's Song. Jon is a master on the keys, and will tickle your earbones with great music. Check his webpage: https://jonhammondband.com, and on iTunes: https://music.apple.com/us/artist/jon-hammond/4308313
