The Corpulent Vampire

Fascinating FictionA lot of folks really loved Once Upon a Childhood: Pirate Gold– a short story by Hyphenbird that we featured on an earlier Fascinating Ficiton podcast, so I thought it would be fun to share another of Hyphenbird’s short stories.  The Corpulent Vampire is the tale of an undead aristocrat who, despite an all liquid diet, has trouble maintaining a svelte figure upon making his way to the good ol’ U.S. of A.

Hyphenbird’s original Hub featuring this story- The Corpulent Vampire – Coming to America, is a real hoot, so if you don’t have time to download or stream the podcast, I strongly recommend giving it a read! Heck, you should give it a read anyway, and have a look at Hyphenbird’s other fantastic Hubs.  She has oodles of them!

Thanks for sharing the funny story, Hyphenbird!  If any of you have a good short fiction Hub that you think would work well in the Fascinating Fiction podcast, don’t forget to email us about it.  We can be reached at podcast (at)
