Max turned the dial on his old shortwave radio. The space between stations hummed and crackled, static spiking, and then her voice came through, carefully enunciating.

A double-bill today, with a short standalone story based on the wonderful modern-day mystery of Numbers Stations, written by me, and a wonderfully atmospheric piece by Eleanor Rutter, better known on Tumblr as Ladara, about an old man surveying the world.
I would love to collaborate with you! If you have short fiction that you would like me to include as a standalone episode of Pocket Fiction, drop me a line!
Thanks for listening! Ideas? Suggestions? Things you would like me to read? Please comment and subscribe!
