Original Scripts and The Omen quadrilogy - post author Don

Hi All,

Apologies for the lack of updates. With the day job, illness, children illness I’ve fallen quite behind in updating the site. I have a few things for you. Over on the Unproduced Scripts page there are twenty five original scripts up for your reading pleasure. Cindy’s Halloween Games has been drastically revised and is worth a re-read. Phil has updated Dreams in Dust and Marble. Also, Mike has his gothic short Becoming up (new script to the site). Head over to the unproduced scripts page and give them (or one of the 22 others) a read.

Thanks to Vern for the heads up on on FOUR Omen scripts from The Omen Chronicles. There is the 1975 draft of The Omen as well as Damien: Omen II, The Final Conflict and Omen IV: Armageddon. Please be a good citizen of the net (ok, I’ll say it, Netizen) and right click and “save as” to down load the scripts once you get to The Omen Chronicles. This helps to lower bandwidth and ensures that the site doesn’t crash due to server load. – Don

Yes, I haven’t updated in a while… - post author Don

…Day job’s a hassle and the kids have the flu.

I’m a week and a half behind in updates. Hope to spend the weekend getting my chakra aligned and my karma balanced so I can get a week and a half worth of updates out into the internets.

In the mean time, you have to watch “The Guild”.

Cyd Sherman’s online gaming addiction brings more than she bargains for…

Written in haste. – Don

P.S., Yes, I know it isn’t a script.

Discussion Board Back Up, but… - post author Don

The Discussion Board is back up, however all postings since late March 22nd have been lost – about 12 days worth of postings. I will be reposting the script threads since the 22nd as quickly as I can. Also, anyone who registered since the 22nd will have to re-register.

SimplyPod - post author Don

From the mind that brought you EscapePod (excellent speculative science fiction short fiction in audio format) and PseudoPod (excellent short horror fiction in audio format) comes the debut podcast by Podcastle. Each week they will bring excellent short fantasy fiction in audio format to your mp3 player, tho if you wish you can listen to the story on your computer. The debut story is Peter S. Beagle’s Come Lady Death. Peter S. Beagle may be familiar to some of you as the writer of The Last Unicorn and the screenplay based on the book of the same name.

As many of you know, I’ve been a big fan of short speculative fiction in audio format. Periodically and from time to time, I take a break from screenplay updates to let you know about audio fiction on the ‘net. In fact, Simplyscripts presents short scripts in audio format from time to time. You can even subscribe to the feed via iTunes Oneclick.

However, audio scripts are just not as popular as I thought, so I’ve decided on a major and radical content shift for SimplyScripts. Beginning tomorrow, or the next day. Or early next week, perhaps. SimplyScripts will become SimplyPodTM! While all the other excellent podcasts have the popular genres locked up, like science fiction, fantasty, horror, hardboiled and thriller, I have found my niche. Coming soon, no more scripts and screenplays. Coming soon, short speculative juvenile fiction in audio format. Each week SimplyPodTM will bring you short speculative fiction written by and performed by my son and his friends from Mrs. Cartwright’s second grade class at Oakton Elementary School.

Coming next week or tomorrow will be the inaugural story Mr. Carrot and the sad Carnivore. It has been a pleasure serving your screenwriting needs over the past nine years, but I feel I must move on to new and better opportunities. So, please come back tomorrow or early next week for the grand unveiling of SimplyPodTM! – Don
