New Podcast Episode - Flash Fiction By Brett Williams And More Podcast News

After a quasi-hiatus, Fear on Demand is back for July with a new episode.

Brett Williams aka @crucify_brett on Twitter contributed the brief and chilling flash piece, Cambion, that's now live at Fear on Demand. Check out more about Brett on his website,

Brett's story is read by Julie Hoverson a writer and actress who is the creator of the fabulous and award-winning audiodrama podcast 19 Nocturne Boulevard.

Julie and I met online because she heard my Southern accent on a FOD introduction and asked me to play a gambler in a weird Western installment of her show.

Age of the Zombies
The second episode of Age of the Zombies is currently live, featuring me wearing a different hat. I'm the voice of Jake, ex-Master Sergeant and current and future zombie-fighter. Again, the Southern accent is serving me well.

I've just learned AOTZ is a finalist for a Parsec Award for speculative fiction in podcasting, which is kind of exciting.

You can listen to any and all of the stuff mentioned above online without an MP3 player though it's also fun to download them and take them with you.

Necropolis Studio Productions, producers of AOTZ, also have a new podcast coming soon, Call Me Jack, a show about THAT Jack.

Check them all out and enjoy, but be warned, they're not for the squeamish.

I'll check out the new Fear on Demand tonight. Probably won't get to Age of the Zombies until later. Cool about the kudos for it, though.

Cool stuff here, Sid. You know, being in the middle of a writing a zombie novel myself, I can't help but wonder where this is all heading. The vampire craze ended up belonging to teen girls. I wonder who will claim the zombies.

I don't know. It's interesting the different directions people are taking, but it's ahrd to say where things will land. Vampires definitely made a transition gradually from scary villains to romantic figures. You could almost trace it to the stage version of Dracula, I suppose, shifting the figure to more romantic. It's interesting in Interview With the Vampire that Rice has the romantic vampires encounter the old-world sort of brutish animalistic vampire in Europe. That's always been my favorite scene in that novel and kind of essential and they left it out of the film.

It is certainly interesting for me to read this article. Thanks for it. I like such topics and anything connected to this matter. I definitely want to read a bit more on that blog soon.
