Vic podcast is live

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.
