CM46 - Synchronicity by Craig Herbertson

So, I made a new website, which I couldn't afford to maintain, and I have only just managed to get around to getting the old website back and remove the redirect! I only managed to put out one episode on the new site, and here it is. The date of this post doesn't match when this episode was originally put out. I'll look into making sure the iTunes feed is functional. While I have no plans to resurrect this podcast from the dead, at least now the archives are reopened! I am due to discuss future plans soon with my crew over at Cast of Wonders.

Show Update

Hi Cast Macabre Fans, your host, Barry J. Northern here.

Apologies for the long delays between episodes. I am relocating to another town, and the move is taking longer than expected. Unfortunately my recording equipment is now packed in a box somewhere in the pile, so I can't record an update, let alone a show. Be assured that I'm still buying some great stories for you, ready for a restart in a few weeks time once we've moved and I'm settled enough to start recording again. In the meantime look forward to stories from Tim Pratt, Ralph Robert Moore, Craig Herbertson, Bosley Gravel, Bruce Boston, and many more.

Soon, we'll have a tale to tell. In the meantime, check out Cast of Wonders.

Visit Ralph Robert Moore's website. There really is a lot of good stuff there.

Also, many thanks to Alasdair and the guys at Pseudopod towers for showing me the way out of their labyrinthine passageways.

41 Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God by Edward Morris

Read by Barry J. Northern

Show Notes

For Neil Gaiman and Mike Carlos

Edward Morris is a 2005 British Science Fiction Association Award nominee, also nominated for the 2009 Rhysling Award. To date, he has sold 74 short stories worldwide, including sales to Interzone(#200, 'Imagine'), Pseudopod (#106, 'Jihad Over Innsmouth') , and most recently Ellen Datlow's Best Horror of the Year #2 ("Lotophagi.")

He's a three-year veteran panelist at the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival and the Oregon Science Fiction Convention.

"Sinners In The Hands of An Angry God" is a story-poem after the style of many of the poems in Neil Gaiman's SMOKE & MIRRORS. John Shirley gave him the idea when he mentioned British Petroleum and a certain Elder God in the same Facebook post. He called this one "a good idea" when he read it. I hope you agree.
