Text to Speech

My short story, “Raising Eddie,” has been released as a podcast #154 over at Pseudopod.  It’s a strange thing to hear your words being read in a stranger’s voice, although I think the vocal oerformer did a wonderful job, both in capturing the feel of the story and in representing the voices of the characters.  His version of Vera Wash gave me the creeps.

This wasthe first time I’ve submitted a story to a podcast, but the experience has been entirely pleasant.  I hope you enjoyed the story if you’ve already listened to it, and if you haven’t — what are you waiting for?

Pseudopod is buying the rights to one of my short stories, “Raising Eddie.” Pseudopod is a wonderful site that creates audio podcasts of stories, and I think “Raising Eddie” is going to be a treat read aloud. It’s a story about bad decisions, and what it’s like to grow up wild in the country.

I’ll have more details, including links to the finished product, later, but for now, go check out Pseudopod, PodCastle, and EscapePod, all of which recreate different kinds of fiction in audio.

In this day and age, when so many people have stopped reading for pleasure, it’s nice to know there’s still a venue for the stories.
