Still wiped, but wanted folks to know that Escape Pod published “Sinner, Baker, Fabulist, Priest; Red Mask, Black Mask, Gentleman, Beast” while I was at Dragon*Con (why do they always publish my stuff while I’m at D*C?). Lawrence Santoro did a simply fabulous reading of it! Go listen, yo. It’s free!
Yesterday, fosteronfilm, dude_the, and I were comatose for most of the day. We emerged briefly to get food and pick up Hobkin from his godmother, then returned to blissful unconsciousness.
It’s getting harder and taking longer to recover from D*C every year.
And it was a wonderful story!!
I’m not anonymous, this is just Larry Santoro being confused about identity.
I’m glad you liked my reading, Eugie. I was going to send you an MP3 file but I figured…you’re busy…your at D-C… et al.
SINNER, BAKER…was a blast. Surprisingly, it came out smooth as (insert favorite poetic image of smooth slickness here), and required only flub-tweaks at the end. As said: Grand fun.
Re: Sinner, Baker…
Your reading was awesome! With your thoughtful and expert blend of swift pacing, poignant drama, and intense emotion, I couldn’t have asked for a better presentation of my story. At the end of my listen, I sat quietly grinning to myself—delighted beyond measure—before uttering (croaking, actually, as my voice is shredded) “perfect.”
