Show Notes

Our story this week is The Filigreed Cage by Krystal Claxton. Krystal writes speculative fiction in the sliver of time between raising a four-year old with her unreasonably awesome husband and being a full-time computer technician. She enjoys attending DragonCon in costume, science magazines, and feverishly researching whichever random topic has just piqued her interest. Keep up with her at her website, or on Twitter. Krystal has a few upcoming releases. Her story The Newsboy’s Last Stand is coming out in Unidentified Funny Objects 3 on October 1st and another story, Bitter Remedy was released in Plasma Frequency Magazine #13 earlier this month.

Your narrator for the story is Andrew Clarke. A. P. Clarke is a London-based artist who writes songs, tells stories about his cat, and runs the Nine Worlds Film Festival. He worries he does not have enough time to do all the important things in life, like drinking.


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