The second portion of this year’s Halloween Shorts has gone up! Instead of a straight ‘blog hop, we were very lucky to arrange for a set of flash fiction to be recorded and distributed through Pseudopod, an online podcast dedicated to horror fiction (it has sister sites in Podcastle – fantasy and Escape Pod – Science Fiction). I owe a massive debt to Alasdair Stuart for arranging it and wrangling all the stories into place.
The audio can be found at this link.
The Day The Words Took Shape by Francesca Haig
Juggernaut Revisited by Lou Morgan
The Anniversary by Den Patrick
Kraken Rising by Andrew Reid
Party at the Witch House by Richard Kellum
The Lake by the mysterious and elusive Severity Chase
The Biggest Candle of Them All by Peter Newman
There is also a story due from the estimable Laura Lam, but it has been delayed due to issues and stuff. It’ll pop up.
But yeah! I’m very pleased that it came together in the end – asking a lot of busy people to produce stories at very short notice and then asking another group of busy people to record and edit and everything else that podcasting requires on even shorter notice. It’s an amazing thing and I’m really glad it came together.
