“Offerings” Performed By Christiana Ellis

If you’re sad Halloween is over, here’s a treat: Christiana Ellis narrates “Offerings” (originally from Doorbells At Dusk) on PseudoPod Episode 837.

It’s a treat for me because the voice acting is brilliant. Christiana captures every character from exhausted caretakers to demonic children to patronizing cops. She has an amazing range. I truly appreciate how well she understands the humor as much as the horror in the story, too.

I’m so grateful the story was chosen by PseudoPod from my collection Convulsive out of the huge amount of great short fiction published this year. It’s good to make my writing more accessible to those who have difficulty reading or seeing, or who simply prefer audio books. I have rather poor hearing and often forget how important audiobooks are to many fiction fans. My apologies!

Psst: someone remind me to look into making audiobooks of The Wingspan of Severed Hands and The Couvade, will you? Please?

For now, please enjoy “Offerings” on PseudoPod
