Here is this week’s podcast. If any of you were terribly cliff hung last week, let me assure you that I have placed a figurative trampoline at the bottom of the metaphorical cliff for you. Make of that what you will.
I do want to say, now that the whole story is up, that I am super, super happy this story sold when it did. One, because I like the story. But more importantly, because after they bought it I started the podcasting gig, which means I can’t submit to Strange Horizons anymore. It is no secret that they’re my favorite of the short fiction markets I read, and the reason I started up writing short fiction instead of just cranking out novels. Having SH like a story I wrote as much as I like SH just closes the loop on a happy, spiraling circle of mutual affection that would make a gerbil’s head spin. And let’s face it, there are few things in life more fun than confusing gerbils.
That last paragraph didn’t quite go the way I expected it to. Ignore it. Listen to the podcast.
