I finally had time to listen to my story, “The Alchemist’s Feather” on PodCastle today.
I usually get nervous about this sort of thing. It’s not that I’ve ever been let down before by a reading (far from it!) but…it’s always nerve wracking to hear your own words. It’s like listening to your own voicemail messages. It’s you, but it’s not you, and the gap between is the uncanny valley of the soul.
I am super pleased to say though that this reading by Dave Thompson is amazing, and the intro and outro by Alasdair Stuart are fantastic. I’m completely thrilled. (There was squee-ing. A lot.)
