Okay this has been amongst the best vampire stories ever, and certainly the best vampire story since the new wave of vampire fiction. Not being a 13 year old girl, I am not overly familiar with "Twilight" or "Vampire Diaries" but I know enough about them to know that they are vapid, overly romanticized , versions of the vampire myth. Nothing like that in U & F. The characters are both believable and amusing. The dialogue flows smoothly, with the ring of truth so often lacking in fiction. The intersecting plot lines draw you right in and could stand on their own as novellas. Not only is everything by M.B brilliantly written, but his performances are so well done that I always have a very clear mental image of each character and feel that they are real individuals and not at all the voice of a single performer. The quality of his production is incomparable and way beyond anything we should reasonably expect from a free podcast. All this aside Mike Bennett is an extremely talented, original and creative writer with a tremendous grasp of the english language and the fact that he has not received a profitable book deal is a sad comment on the state of publishing. I have little disposable income and have as yet to donate to a podcast, but I feel that for all the hours of excellent entertainment Mr. Bennett has provided me I am going to have to make this a first. I eagerly await the Q & A episode and I am taking Mikes advice to wait until then, before I make my contribution.
Everything that I have said about U & F applies equally to his other podcasts. Please Mr. Bennett never stop writing and performing, the world of literature and podcasting would be a sadder and emptier place without you.
