Science Fiction Narration News

Happy July, everyone!

Just a quick update: yesterday I posted about my new narration of "The Island" by Peter Watts, which is available for listening or download here at StarShipSofa. This novelette has been nominated for this year's Hugo, Locus, and Theodore Sturgeon Awards.

Today my unabridged dramatic reading of Will McIntosh's short story "Bridesicle" is available on the latest episode of Escape Pod, which currently is running narrations of this and all of the other short stories nominated for this year's Hugo Award. You can download or listen to the reading here.

As always, a full list of links to my narrations and podcast segments is here.

If you listen, I hope you enjoy!

"An old man was leaning over her, smiling, but Mira barely saw him, because when she opened her mouth to inhale, her jaw squealed like a sea bird’s cry, and no breath came, and she wanted to press her hands to the sides of her face, but her hands wouldn’t come either."
