Show Notes

Hello everyone. Here in England the seasons have completed yet another quarter turn. The leaves are falling, the wind is gusting, and the pumpkin spice lattes have been packed away faster than you can say Christmas sales.

To accompany the longer nights and contemplation of the cycles of life, this week we’re proud to present The Mothgate, by J. R. Troughton, originally published in Shimmer.

JR TroughtonJames Ross Troughton is a writer of fantasy fiction who lives and works in Essex, England. After graduating from the University of Leicester in 2007, he moved to Seoul, South Korea, where he worked in language academies for three years before returning to the UK. He now works in Primary education. He likes cats. We’ll put his web page and Twitter link in the show notes for you.



For your narrator this week, we welcome back by special request Stephanie Morris. Stephanie read Take a Good Look by Holly Schofield for us earlier this year. And you may also remember her from Episode 94, The Drove of the Maris Charlottes.

Stephanie is a professional student, a librarian-in-training, a voracious biblio- and audiophile, and an occasional writer of short stories. She has narrated fiction for PseudoPod, PodCastle, and Cast of Wonders.

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