Tue, 05 April 2011 Vic podcast is live

Basketball court by Del Lakin-Smith

Thanks to dynamic duo of Sharon Ring and Del Lakin-Smith at Dark fiction Magazine my short story ‘Vic’ is now available as a podcast in its latest issue titled ‘The Waste land’. The TOC is:

‘Vic’ previously appeared in Black Static issue 10 and Year’s Best Dark Fantasy and Horror 2010, edited by Paula Guran.

I always approach listening to a podcast of one of my stories with a certain amount of trepidation. Not only is there the fear that somehow it will sound ridiculous, there is the weirdness of listening to your own words (I don’t re-read my stories once they’re published).

Kim Lakin-Smith’s reading of ‘Vic’ is lovely. It’s a poignant story that requires a sensitive touch, and Kim demonstrates that in her rendition of the tale.

It’s great to have the story available to a wider audience, as it’s one that has proven quite popular with readers so far.

    “Writing is rewriting. A writer must learn to deepen characters, trim writing, intensify scenes. To fall in love with the first draft to the point where one cannot change it is to greatly enhance the prospects of never publishing.” — Richard North Patterson
