So, in order to give a bit of an insight into the kinds of things that I like, please find following a list of podcasts that I really enjoy:
- Short dark fiction/horror stories. This podcast is already in its tens of episodes and provides work by new authors, established authors as well as old classics including Bram Stoker and HG Wells.
- Seth Harwood - the first name in crime podcasting. Mr Harwood puts together an awesome podcast of short, crime fiction including procedurals and heist stories. Fantastic.
- The original Escape Artists podcast, specialising in science fiction and exploring the genre in all its many forms. Pure awesome.
- The second of the Escape Artists podcasts, this time specialising in horror. High production values and a whole heap of different content.
- The third and final of the Escape Artists podcasts. Pod Castle specialises in fantasy.
Scott Sigler Audiobooks
- Mr Sigler, is currently recasting Ancestor, a science fiction novel exploring some of the issues around creation/resurrection of a species through genetic manipulation for the purposes of organ harvesting. His work has a fantastic scientific basis, and the other stories within the "Siglerverse" including Infected, Contagious, Earthcore are equally as awesome.
- Mr Bennett is currently working through Underwood and Flinch, a vampire novel set in Spain (and no sparkles). I love his dark sense of humour that comes through in this and other stories, such as One Among the Sleepless, and his Hall or Mirrors collections (1 and 2).
Transmissions from Beyond
- Transmissions podcasts short stories from a bunch of TTA Press magazines, including Black Static (Dark/Horror), Interzone (SF) and Crimewave (Crime). Great podcasts, coming out roughly on a monthly basis.
