Show Notes

Hello everyone, sorry we’ve been away for a while. Make sure you listen to the story for that important announcement we mentioned.

This week we present Foggy Planet Breakdown by Peter Wood. Peter is an attorney in Raleigh, NC where he lives with his surly cat and patient wife. He has had stories published in Asimov’s, Bull Spec, and Daily Science Fiction.

John Hornor Jacobs

The story is narrated by the dulcet tones of the amazing John Hornor Jacobs. JHJ has worked in advertising for the last fifteen years, played in bands, and pursued art in various forms. He is also, in his copious spare time, an excellent novelist. His first novel, Southern Gods, was published by Night Shade Books and shortlisted for the Bram Stoker Award. His young adult series, The Incarcerado Trilogy, is sitting on my to-be-read shelf having been lovingly hand carried back from Borderlands this summer. And if you like fantasy, westerns, or even better, fantasy westerns, you owe it to yourself to check out The Incorruptibles and its sequel, Foreign Devils. And if that wasn’t enough, he also has a quartet of horror stories, Fierce As The Grave, available through Amazon.

We’ll have links for all his titles, as well as to John’s website and Twitter account. He’s an all-around lovely guy, you should go say hello.


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