I’m thrilled to let you all know that a narrated audio version (not really long enough for an audiobook, so I guess an audioshort?) of my story “A Time for Raven” is now available at StarShipSofa. For those of you unfamiliar with StarShipSofa, it is The Audio Science Fiction Magazine and is one of the top SF podcasts going. Great SF stories each week, and all completely free! Many thanks to Tony C Smith, captain of the Sofa, for selecting my story and for generally running such a great podcast.
As I’ve said before, I know you’re not supposed to have favorites amongst your children, but “A Time for Raven” is a story that in particular means a lot to me. Here’s what other people have thought of it:
“…a truly wonderful, touching ending to this great story.” – SFRevu.com
“The fictional tale…is highly appropriate to the actual legend…” – LOCUS Magazine Online
“It is poetically written, at times almost prayerful.” – Fantasy Literature
“Stephen Kotowych writes the mythic into the realism of life in modern day, proving that myths never die; they linger on well into the future.” – SF Site
I hope you enjoy it, too.
