I’ve Been Podcasted!
Wow! I just listened to the wonderfully done podcast version of “The Taste of Starlight” at www.lightspeedmagazine.com
This is the first time I’ve had a short story of mine read aloud and podcasted. It’s one of the coolest things about LIGHTSPEED–they do podcast readings every month. And let me tell you, Kristoffer Tabori does an AMAZING job of bringing this story of Dr. Pelops and his dilemma to life.
This guy has a voice you could listen to for hours. However, the story podcast is only 64 minutes long. WARNING: Do not eat anything while listening to the story, and if you don’t have a strong stomach, skip it altogether.
Tabori’s voice brings all the gravity of an OUTER LIMITS announcer to the story, and his lively, chilling tones are worthy of an Edgar Allan Poe tale. I feel that the story has been elevated to a whole new level by Tabori’s bravura performance.
Even if you’ve read the story, I recommend paying another visit to LIGHTSPEED and listening to it through Tabori’s immense talent.
Here’s the direct link to the podcast.

I’ve never listened to an audiobook of any sort (shocking, I know),so I was not knowing what to expect. I must say, Tabori captured the creepy feel of the story perfectly. It was quite disturbing in its delivery. Your story was also well written and fitting to the season. Not quite sure how I feel about the ending, but the irony was spot on. I’m going to have to seek out more audiobooks/podcasts like this. It was a nice change of pace.
