The Seven O’Clock Man by Kate Heartfield

October 24, 2019

It's almost time to change the clocks, so let's have a seasonably dark tale of unruly children and clockwinders from colonial Quebec. Wilson Fowlie narrates.  Rated creepy clockpunk.

Author Kate Heartfield is the author of the historical fantasy novel Armed in Her Fashion and the two Alice Payne time travel novellas. She also writes interactive fiction, including The Road to Canterbury, published by Choice of Games. Her fiction has been shortlisted for the Nebula, Locus, Aurora, Sunburst and Crawford awards; "The Seven O'Clock Man" was longlisted for the Sunburst award. A former journalist, Kate lives in Ottawa, Canada. Her website is heartfieldfiction.com and she is on Twitter @kateheartfield.

Narrator Wilson Fowlie has been reading stories out loud since the age of 4, and credits his parents for any talent he has for it. He's been narrating for podcasts since he answered a call for readers for PodCastle in 2008.

He has narrated dozens of stories for many podcasts, including all of the Escape Artists shows. Wilson fits all this narrating between his day job as a web developer in Vancouver, Canada, and directing a community show chorus called The Maple Leaf Singers.
