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.
