submitted one of my little stories, then later it got purchased? Well, now it's actually been released. My story, Thinking About Polar Bears, appears in the latest episode of Pseudopod, a horror podcast, and is narrated by Matt Arnold.
There are a few ways to listen. If you have an iPod, it's easiest to go through iTunes: search for the Pseudopod podcast, and it's the latest episode, titled "Flash on the Borderlands I". You can also listen directly on your computer at Pseudopod.org. This episode is a collection of 3 stories. Mine is the 2nd one, nestled in the middle like a creamy filling. I'm honoured to be included with two fantastically disturbing stories, but if you're squeamish or short on time, you can skip to mine at 10:10. It's not completely safe for work either, though.
It is incredibly strange to hear my words coming out of someone else's mouth, especially read so dramatically (and with an unexpected musical twist). It's been a long time since I've let anyone read my writing (blogging doesn't count), and now having it not only read out loud by one person, but heard by many other people...man, it's a both terrifying and a real rush. I'm so grateful to the fine people at Pseudopod for this, and I hope my little story manages to tickle the darker corners of a few minds out there.
