I’m almost caught up on podcasts I let hang fire while I did NaNoWriMo. Below is a small sampling of some science fiction and fantasy stories I liked from November. For most you have the option to read or listen. I like to binge-listen to podcasts while doing holiday baking. If you’re not already familiar with these podcasts, there are many good stories to choose from — and some podcasts will do holiday stories later this month.
Rocket Talk “Selfies” If you missed it when it was first published on the tor.com site or loved it and want to hear it, this is a dark modern tale with a classic feel.
“Shared Faces” If you liked the post “Robots, androids & cyborgs, oh my!” on my author blog, add this one to that list.
“The Transdimensional Horsemaster Rabbis of Mpumalanga Province” A wonderful NatGeo feel to this story of a photojournalist and a lost tribe.
“Law of Gravity” Gamers will especially appreciate this story of online life and loss.
“Why I Bought Satan Two Cokes on the Day I Graduated High School” First line: “When I came out of the coffee shop with my latte and my fresh walnut brownie, the Archangel Michael was beating the ever-loving shit out of Satan down on the corner.” Dave Thompson’s reading is excellent!
Clarkesworld “The Vorkuta Event” Very classic type story both in style and substance, excellently read by Alasdair Stuart.
BONUS: Interview with Kameron Hurley on the Adventures in SciFi Publishing podcast.
