I am very proud of Escape Pod’s editors’ choice to run this beautiful story as the first in our month-long tribute to female and non-binary gendered authors, and I’m honored to have been able to narrate it.

It’s a stirring story set in a post-apocalyptic, machine-driven, 1984-ish world. The main character is saved from a death sentence for loving without permission, and his fortune leads him to make a similar sacrifice to save someone else. In the end, the simple beauty of the night sky is the most important.

It’s a bit of a tear-jerker, but well worth the ride in my opinion. I also count it in the top 10 of my narrations easily; maybe top 5. I’m quite proud if it.
