Dark Fiction Magazine, a UK podcast, has posted my story “The Machinery of Government“ as part of Issue 11. The podcast is about 30 minutes long and has a great reading by Danny Davies who brings real sense of terror to the piece. Set in Ottawa, it’s about a newly-minted cabinet minister who must choose between his duty and his wife when Ottawa comes under attack. Thematically, it’s about the dehumanizing aspects of technology.
“The Machinery of Government” first appeared in Tesseracts Fourteen (EDGE Publishing) edited by John Robert Colombo and Brett Alexander Savory.
In other good news, I just received the proofs for Undead Tales 2. In it, I found my zombie story “But It’s Not The End” is the last story in the anthology, which is unknown as the “anchor” story since it’s the last thing the reader will read, anchoring the anthology in the reader’s mind by that story. Undead Tales 2 is edited by Armand Rosamilia and will be published by Rymfire Books.
