I've decided to launch a podcast of me reading excerpts from my stories. I've held back before because I just couldn't see how I could possibly reliably get quiet places to record in -- my flat and office are loud, and the hotel rooms, airport lounges, etc, where I live most of my life are no better. But what the hell. Mark Pesce says that the ambient noise adds texture and I'm inclined to agree.
The story I've started with is "After the Siege," a novelette I'm writing on long-haul flight segments, in 2-5,000 word chunks, for an anthology of optimisitic sf stories. It's inspired by my grandmother's stories of living throug the Siege of Leningrad, which she told during a family reunion in St Petersburg, Russia, last summer.
I've just posted the first installment as an MP3.
Here's the podcast URL if you're inclined to subscribe. I'm also hoping that this will end up in the iTunes podcast repository.
