Audio fiction at Subterranean Online
Ready? Guess which upcoming item at Subterranean Online is the secret project I’ve been referring to.
For two years, Subterranean magazine has brought you the absolute finest in science fiction, fantasy and horror, from names like Harlan Ellison, Joe R. Lansdale, Elizabeth Bear, Joe Hill and Cherie Priest. Now Subterranean magazine is moving online â€” and continuing to bring you the best new fiction as it moves from print to pixels.
Hereâ€™s what you can expect from Subterranean Online in the near future:
* An entire novella by Hugo and Nebula Award winner Lucius Shepard
* A full-length original audio-book by Kage Baker
* New and original short fiction from Subterranean Press authors Poppy Z. Brite, Joe Hill, Joe R. Lansdale and John Scalzi
* Columns and opinion from Elizabeth Bear, Norman Partridge and Scott Lynch
* Weekly reviews of the best new fiction from Dorman T. Shindler.
All new, all compelling, all right there on your screen. Itâ€™s what you expect from Subterranean magazine â€” and a taste of what you can expect in the future.
I’ll be recording through next week. Basically, for each hour of listening pleasure, you can figure about five man hours of working time; that’s counting my work and the engineer’s work together. He has to do things like edit out the places where I try to say “Mazaltlan” and come out with “Mazeltlof.”
Now aren’t you wondering how Midsummer Night’s Dream and Mazaltlan both occur in one story? Just you wait. I will tell you, though, that this is a really fun read. I love Kage Baker’s work and this is a hoot.
