Jason Pettus, executive director of Chicago Center for Literature and Photography, is putting together a twelve part podcast of short stories penned by some great authors, and I have the privileged of being included in this very cool, creepy collection/podcast. I will be debuting the first selection of my six part short story live at Quimby's Bookstore on September 21st. CCLaP's press release is posted below. Come one, come all!
Every autumn, CCLaP is proud to present another themed anthology featuring the short work of a variety of writers across the US; but this year the center is trying something special, releasing this compilation as a free 12-part serialized audiobook through its popular podcast, every Monday in September, October and November. Entitled "CCLaP's Podcast Dreadful," the series has been designed in the fashion of an old Victorian "penny dreadful" publication, including cliffhangers at the end of each chapter and a dark, weird tone throughout. Hosted by Christopher Sullivan and featuring brand-new pieces by Kate Cullan, Jason Fisk, Kevin Haworth, Jacob Knabb, Keith McCleary and Sophia G. Starmack, John Reed, Jason Riley, Jim Ruland, Davis Schneiderman, Ben Tanzer and Karl Wolff, as well as new music by Ken Kase written specifically for this project, it is sure to be just the right ticket for a cold, scary autumn night.
