RELEASED: My reading of “Site 14” on Escape Pod

Escape Pod (podcast)

'Site 14' by Laura Anne Gilman

It would seem I get the call when something in the story calls for a voice that’s “morose” or “forlorn” and I’m totally okay with that. The added fun of being the producer on this one was that I got to add some sound effects we don’t normally bother with. There’s an alarm that sounds through half the story, and I know people are going to think it’s annoying, but I stand by the decision to put it there. I’ve listened to it like 4 times, and every time that alarm kicks in, I get tense with urgency. When it stops, the silence left in its wake pulls energy straight out of your soul.

About the story… It’s a short alternate history story about a US backed research station in the deepest depths of the ocean. I don’t want to give anything away, but I will remind you that Escape Pod plays sci-fi stories, and Halloween’s coming. It’s not gory horror, but I bet your blood will chill a bit. I recommend a listen as long as you can handle two curse words. 😉
