As I announced on Twitter weeks ago (see what you miss by not following me there?), I'm starting a podcast of my short fiction. Podcasting has become a very good way to build a following as a writer, and since I've had years of practice reading my work out loud, it seems like a natural fit.
Episode one is here. I'm not 100% happy with the sound quality -- I've bought a better microphone since then.
Finally finished cleaning up and editing episode two, and I'm pretty excited about this one -- the first one was "Feeding the Flesh", a story that's printed in Counting From Ten. But this one's brand new -- you haven't heard this at a reading yet, and only a couple of people have read it.
By popular request, it's another one of my "Shadow Market" stories. This one is about someone who's just starting out in the Market, and is about to make his first sale -- to a strangely reluctant buyer. This will be the sale that makes his reputation ... if he survives it ....

Let me know what you think. (Oh, and no spoilers in the comments, please, for those who haven't had a chance to listen to it yet.) Thanks!
