Scott D. Danielson reviewed the Escape Pod podcast of "Sinner, Baker, Fabulist, Priest" at SFFAudio.com, giving snaps to both myself and the fabulous Larry Santoro, who narrated it:
"...each section of the story is a heightened emotional experience. The intensity of this story was spectacularly captured by Lawrence Santoro, who narrated in a dramatic manner that reminds me of Harlan Ellison. Bravo to author and narrator – a perfect match. A great story, truly worthy of a Nebula."
And in a clumsy segue, this month has passed in something of a blur, and I just realized that the deadline for Hugo nominations is this Saturday, the 13th. For folks attending Aussiecon 4 or have supporting memberships who haven't completed their nominations, I invite you to consider my novelette "Sinner, Baker, Fabulist, Priest; Red Mask, Black Mask, Gentleman, Beast."
Originally published in issue #220 of Interzone and podcast by Escape Pod, it can also be read online for free at Apex Magazine.
I took me about forever to figure out I could read this story online. Because I am that clueless sometimes.
Anyway, I can't do Hugo stuff but I would so vote for this one if I could. I love it. And that title's been rattling round in my head for the last few weeks. Wow.
And don't forget that "Sinner, Baker,..." won second place on a sudden death poll on the Escape Pod forums by Escape Pod listeners, for the best EP story of 2009. The #1 spot went to last year's Hugo winner, "Exhalation" by Ted Chaing. Pretty good company. The poll had to go to sudden dealth because the same two stories tied in a previous poll where more than one vote was permitted.
