When it rains, it pours...in your ears!

Last week my short story, "Vacation Package," was featured in Episode 5 of Erik Arneson's Title 18: Word Crimes Podcast.

This week my short story, "Charred Kraken with Plum Butter," originally published in WEIRD NOIR, is featured in Episode 99 of Crime City Central. CCC is an excellent podcast and Nathan Lowell did a really great job with the reading - I'd forgotten what a fun story 'Charred Kraken' was to write, and how much I want to spend more time in that world some day.

Head on over and give it a listen - or better yet, subscribe on iTunes and check out more from greats such as Dave Zeltserman, Allan Guthrie, Paul Brazill, Matthew C Funk, Nick Mamatas, and more.
