Ep. 42 - Safe as Houses by Laura E. Price & The Automat’s Automaton by Angela Enos

September 7, 2017

Two stories of abandoned things to finish out the summer. 

Author Laura E. Price lives in Florida with her husband and son in a perfectly ordinary house. Her stories have appeared in Cicada, On Spec, Strange Horizons, Beneath Ceaseless Skies, GigaNotoSaurus, and a forthcoming issue of Betwixt. You can find her blog at seldnei.wordpress.com.

Narrator Sarah Heiner, active in Second Life under the pseudonym of Bookworm, assisted in the editing of two of the three 'Tales from New Babbage' volumes, and has stories published in all three. She lives in the fly-over land of Minnesota, with more books than she knows what to do with.

Author Angela Enos writes fiction and other oddities that have been published in Cast of Wonders, FLAPPERHOUSE, Visibility Fiction, New Myths, Nonbinary Review’s Alphanumeric, Bloodbond, and Body Parts Magazine. When not writing, she makes art and theatre across the US.

Narrator Andrew McCurdy has been reading and writing science fiction ever since he saw Charleton Heston kneeling in the surf, cursing the half-buried Statue of Liberty. He recently relocated from teaching college in a large city to rural Nova Scotia where he hopes to start writing in earnest. He is a regular editor at the Gallery and has been known to sneak a story or two into the slush pile.
