Our story this week is Hard Passage by Holly Schofield. You may remember Holly from episode 124, Old People Rules, last May.

Holly Schofield’s stories have appeared in dozens of publications including Lightspeed, Crossed Genres, and Tesseracts. She travels through time at the rate of one second per second, oscillating between the alternate realities of a prairie farmhouse and her remote writing cabin in the wilds of North America.

For more of her work (including free stories!) and a list of forthcoming publications, see her website.

Hard Passage is narrated for you by John Meagher, who’s also a Cast of Wonders alum. He narrated the excellent Alex Shvartsman story You Bet back in episode 95.
