Show Notes

This week we present The Clasp, by Jarod K Anderson. Jarod used to teach English at Ohio University. Currently, he works at a foundation that raises money for a wide range of college scholarships. He writes about education by day and ghosts, monsters, and madmen by night. It’s a good arrangement. Jarod’s work has appeared in numerous online and print publications including Daily Science Fiction, Escape Pod, Electric Spec, The Colored Lens, Stupefying Stories, and elsewhere. Find him online here.

For aspiring writers, Jarod and his wife Leslie J. Anderson co-wrote the book Inklings: 300 Starts, Plots, and Challenges to inspire your Horror, Science Fiction, and Fantasy Stories. Inklings is currently available at Amazon.com. Jarod and Leslie also have a forthcoming project from Sterling Publishing titled 100 Prompts for Science Fiction Writers which will be available in late 2014.

The Clasp is narrated for you by Elie Hirschman. Elie’s narrated for the triumvirate of Escape Artists podcasts: Podcastle, Escape Pod and Pseudopod. You may also remember him from Episode 106, our Little Wonders collection The Journey, where he narrated Treasure Hunter. Elie has been dabbling in voice acting for the past ten years, with several online production companies including Darker Projects, Dream Realm and BrokenSea Productions. He has all his life failed to live by rule 3 of Mike Damone’s Five-Point plan – “Act like wherever you are – that’s the place to be.” He lives in the Eastern Hemisphere against his will and better judgment and occasionally turns bad drama scripts into intentionally bad comedy at Cool Fool Productions.

Theme music is “Appeal To Heavens” by Alexye Nov, available at MusicAlley.com.
