Do you like your cookies sweet or crispy?

Here’s a twofer Tuesday. Why not?

Let’s start with “Intelligent Design,” by Ellen Klages, in which God is an impish child shooting stars into the night sky. Pew! Pew! Pew! And he gets to make lots and lots of bugs out of Nanadeus’s cookies. A sweet mini read on Podcastle. You know me. I like the bugs.

For a extra crispy cookies, try “Through The Cooking Glass by Vylar Kaftan.  Mrs. Wallace bakes gingerbread people, and as they come to life, she makes Bender‘s effort at godhood look pretty good. (Hey, it’s a while since I referred to this episode.) The very next mini read on Podcastle. Unsettling, but memorable.
