Happy Groundhog Day! What better way to celebrate the beginning of February than with free fiction?
Free fiction the first: The podcast of “The King of Rabbits and Moon Lake” is now up at Journey Into…, read fabulously by the talented Rajan Khanna. Listen, enjoy!
Free fiction the second: A bunch of us writers have come together to coordinate a massive book giveaway contest, “Crossing the Streams.” Check out my Book Giveaway page for details.
First and foremost, “Biba Jibun” is now up at Pseudopod for your free listening pleasure, read by the talented Kara Grace. Enjoy!
Next, laid out in quasi-scientific fashion, an update on my foray into releasing some of my previously published and out-of-print short fiction as e-books:

Yay! Just heard from Anna Schwind of PodCastle that they want to publish “Black Swan, White Swan.” I’ve said it before and I’ll keep saying it ’cause it’s true: I really, really love selling to podcasts.
Just sold a reprint of “The King of Rabbits and Moon Lake” to Marshal Latham’s new podcast, Journey Into… Originally published in Cricket in 2006, it’s my take on “Moon Lake,” one of the stories from the classic Indian collection of children’s tales, The Panchatantra.
Journey Into… has a stellar crew of accomplished podcaster voices contributing it to it, such as Alasdair Stuart and Lawrence Santoro, so I’m very much looking forward to hearing their production of my story.
Just got word from Norm Sherman, Editor/Producer of the Drabblecast podcast, that my story for their H.P. Lovecraft tribute month, “The Wish of the Demon Achtromagk,” is now up! Checkout the fabulous artwork by David Flett:

Just heard from Shawn Garrett, Pseudopod’s editor, that they want to podcast “Biba Jibun,” slated for publication sometime next year. Woot!
It’s been a while since I sold to one of the Escape Artists stable. Way delighted to have ended that bit of a dry spell. Love love love having my work produced by them.
Earlier this month, Norm Sherman of The Drabblecast podcast invited me to submit a story for their H.P. Lovecraft Tribute month. I adore both Norm and Drabblecast, as well as any excuse to play in H.P.’s eldritch sandbox, so of course I said, “count me in!”
Just got a note back from Norm, and I’m delighted to be able to announce that my story, “The Wish of the Demon Achtromagk,” will be podcast as part of Drabblecast’s Lovecraft Tribute lineup in August.
Gotta give them elder gods their due, I always sez.
Gah! I’ve been so immersed in working on the novel that I managed to miss when Escape Pod published my “Only Springtime When She’s Gone” (read by Jason Adams)! Haven’t listened to it yet but really looking forward to it–when I come to a good breaking place on my editing pass (on chapter 20, making excellent progress, can’t stop, clown will eat me).
Also saw that the EP website has had an overhaul and that they’re upping their pay scale to SFWA pro rates. I love the Escape Artists podcasts, I do.
Just got a note from Mur Lafferty letting me know that Escape Pod wants to buy a reprint of my cyberpunk Hades and Persephone re-telling, “Only Springtime When She’s Gone.” Woot!
