This weekend, I recorded Orson Scott Card’s Middle Woman, which will appear as an audio bonus in the next issue of Intergalactic Medicine Show. This has long been one of my favorite stories and I’ve had the passing fantasy of adapting it to puppet stage. This is much better–it’s like puppetry for radio.
I sent it off to Scott yesterday and sat on pins and needles hoping he would like it. The dragon was tricky, and my initial pass was too angrily European. So I rerecorded all of the dragon lines with a silkier tone and Rob dropped them into place.
Scott emailed me today and said, “This is wonderful! Thank you!”
