#64 - Matryoshka, Part 1

They both watched the matryoshka for a moment. About the size of a rugby ball, it was made of smooth light-coloured wood. A clear varnish had been applied to it, and the harsh electric light reflected off of the curved surface in warped lines..

A standalone science-fiction/mystery story. A scientist takes delivery of a mysterious matryoshka doll. Who sent it? What lies within it? And why does one of the layers have a perfect painting of himself on it? Tune in next week for the second part.

Each track is also available as a podcast through the iTunes store; on Tumblr; and on YouTube
