On this episode of Soundwave we bring you an almost inescapable deluge of high quality SF content.
In what seems like an alarming early trend, our three stories this week are linked again by death, but while last episode emphasised the speculative aspect of SF, this instalment's are firmly in the science mode.
For Sonic Space I sat down for a very cosy chat with Sam Dolan, reviews editor of an award winning science fiction magazine you might have heard of. If you're a criticism nerd the unabridged version is also on Patreon
, which finds us taking a deeper dive into literary theory and discussing The Death of the Author
, genre, literary fiction, racist language in older fiction, authorial construction and responsibility and more.
I'm also delighted to bring you an exclusive from a favourite band of mine, Cellar Darling: an extract from their audiobook which accompanies their new concept album, and the track it pairs with.
As of writing you can't hear any of the audiobook outside of the physical special edition CD, and the poetic piece I've selected works beautifully as moody spoken word in its own right.
We've also got 3 audio stories for you to enjoy as you, read by Jonathan Whiteside Playwright/Actor, Sue Gyford and the debut of Voxtext Ben Blow.
