Show Notes

Every year in January Cast of Wonders takes a break to catch our breath, plan out the year ahead, and highlight some of our favourite episodes from the year just passed.

We hope you enjoy Jeff’s favorite story from 2014, Shimmer by Amanda C. Davis, which originally aired November 30, 2014 as Episode 148.

Amanda has an engineering degree and a fondness for baking, gardening, and low-budget horror films. Her short fiction has appeared in print and around the web. For a collection of dark fairy-tale retellings, check out Wolves and Witches, co-written with her sister Megan Engelhardt. You can follow her on Twitter or read more of her work at her website.

Shimmer is narrated for you by Lizzie S. Lizzie works in data visualisation, and her work hours are consumed with thinking about data, how it fits together and how to visualise it in a simple manner for others. To escape this she is a keen gamer, writer and reader vanishing off into fantasy worlds for hours at a time. She currently lives with her husband and dreams of a time when they might have space to own a cat or a dog. You can follow her on Twitter.

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