Hello hello, I have been negligent in my website updates, but I should mention:
“A Study in Flesh and Mind” is now available on Pseudopod they did a terrific job. It’s also a special treat to hear Alasdair talk about creative process and the effort of dragging idea through a state change.
The Rugged Track, readable right now at Strange Horizons, will be broadcast by PodCastle sometime too.
… aaaaand, both are eligable for award type thingies for 2011 if you feel so inclined.
And now, if you don’t mind I’m going to listen to this week’s PodCastle. It’s got a charming intro by Madame MK Hobson, is read by the delectable Tina Conolly (who’s doing a whole podcasting series this year and whose book, Ironskin, is coming out soooon) and has words by the delightful Alaya Dawn Johnson.
How can you say no to something with content like this?
Still, at sixteen she had finally accomplished several of her goals in life: a) meet a boy, b) talk to the boy, c) impress him with her knowledge of esoteric subjects like grafting apple trees, and, finally, d) mack on him like crazy.
If pressed, Judy admitted that perhaps she still had a slight distance to travel until she fully accomplished d). Even though Brandon had attempted to insert his tongue in her mouth, the reality of it wagging wetly in the air had so disconcerted Judy that she turned at the exact wrong moment, thereupon forcing Brandon’s tongue to slither over her cheek until he realized what had happened and put it back in his mouth. How, she asked Alice, does anyone make out with so much spit? Alice just shrugged and said you got used to it.
Judy hoped she would get used to it.
Now, that’s one heck of a way to spend a sleepy Saturday morning. PodCastle noms.
