Mythical Minstrelsy and Flash Fiction Fridays


Mythical Minstrelsy and Flash Fiction Fridays will focus on flash fictions centering around folklore, myth, fantasy, and magic that I have written or have been sent to me for publication. Book reviews will also be published. Author, editor, illustrator, publisher, poet, and rpg site owner interviews are planned for in the future. The episodes are intentionally short due to the nature of flash fiction. Reviews tend to go up on Wednesdays, Flashfictions on Fridays, Interviews Sundays.

If you wish YOUR poetry, short fiction, or flash fictions to be included on the podcast, or to be interviewed, please see Podcast Submissionsl for details. Featured work is paid, interviews are not.

I am the author of the "Selkies' Skins" and "Dragon Shaman" series. I also write poetry, illustrate, and do some narration. I also run a small publishing company, THG StarDragon Publishing.

You can find me on my Patreon where I post content first, as it is my central location for sharing all of my projects. Check out the links below for other places to find me and how you can help. Back issues will eventually be uploaded to Gumroad. RSS Feed URL

Flash Fiction Fridays #36: Ame Reads Chinese Folk Tales #17 Why Rabbits Live in Burrows

For the 17th reading from this book for the Trotsdale Library enjoyment and discussion is the old tale of Why Rabbits Live in Burrows as collected by Louise and Yuan Hsi Kuo.
Narrated by Teresa Garcia

I forgot to mention this when recording but as a gun is implied in this tale I think it to be a more modern version. I can't imagine bows going bang instead of twang. However it should also be remembered that the Chinese had gunpowder first. It would be interesting to try finding an older version to compare with.
