|Jan. 10th, 2010 @ 10:08 pm A review of 2009 from a creative standpoint|
Creative work for 2009
--The Prophet of Panamindorah Podcast (solo read) - the novel plus several related short stories that haven't appeared elsewhere, was a Parsec Finalist
--The Guild of the Cowry Catchers Podcast (full cast audio, illustrated)
–“Miranda and the Butterfly” appeared on August 3, 2009 on The Dunesteef Audio Fiction Magazine.
–“Forests of the Night” appeared in the spring 2009 edition (#4) of The Greatest Uncommon Denominator.
--"A Cat Prince Distinguishes Himself" is a Panamindorah story that appeared March 11, 2009 on The Dunesteef Audio Fiction Magazine.
–“Squid Ink” were dramatized on The Drabblecast, episode 134.
Cowry Catchers is off to a swifter start in terms of listener numbers, both because of the audience I built for Prophet and because I involved so many other podcasters (who then shopped it to their audiences). We're 5 episodes in, and I just ran across the longest, most detailed review of my work I've ever received from a total stranger. This guy was really paying attention! I also ran across a nice little review of the short story that was published in GUD. It's cool when Google Alerts turns up a nice review out of nowhere from someone to whom you've never spoken.
