My story “The Giant of Malheur Park” went live on PodCastle yesterday. The intro is fantastic, the reading is wonderful. It’s free, so check it out.

Listen to it here.

If you like what you hear, consider making a donation to Escape Artists, the company that brings you Escape Pod, PseudoPod, and PodCastle.

“The Giant of Malheur Park” was originally published in Kaleidotrope #10, a print ‘zine that publishes a great variety of speculative fiction. If you haven’t already, I highly recommend you check out this publication. Authors published in Kaleidotrope include Rachel Swirsky, Bruce Boston, Genevieve Valentine, Marshall Payne, Camille Alexa, and more.

from Ann Leckie at PodCastle.org:

Signal boost!

PodCastle wants you! We’re continually looking for volunteers of all backgrounds and ethnicities to read the cool stories we’ve bought. So if you’re listening to this, and you’ve ever wanted to read for PodCastle, or any of the Escape Artists podcasts, and you have recording equipment, we’d love for you to send us an audition.

Here’s what you do: Record a sample of you reading something, an excerpt from a story or a book, preferably under five minutes, just so we can get a feel for how you sound. If you can do accents – Creole, Spanish, Southern, Irish, Turkish, French, Japanese – please include that in your audition, and mention it in your email. Then drop us a line at editor@podcastle.org with your audition attached. .wav, .mp3, .aif attachments are preferred. Please mention “audition” in the subject line.

As I said, we’re looking for readers of all backgrounds and ethnicities, but what’s driving this casting call is an urgent need for a story featuring an African American man in Louisiana. Here at PodCastle, we’ve always prided ourselves in bringing you a selection of diverse stories, and we’d love to have more people of color read these stories for you.

If you have any questions, please post on our forum, or email us at editor@podcastle.org. Thanks for listening, and we look forward to hearing from you.
