Aesop on the post-modern rocks. Daren Callow narrates.  #FracturedFairyTales
 
Author Louis Evans is a sci-fi writer with work in Analog, Interzone, Escape Pod and more. He lives in Brooklyn with his partner and two cats named after fictional detectives. He is almost certainly not infested with a mind-controlling fungus.
Narrator Daren Callow is a writer, voice actor and musician who is based in Hove on the south coast of the United Kingdom, a medium-sized cannon shot from the English Channel. As an actor, as well as (seemingly endless) live performances of Tales Of New Albion stories and plays, Daren has also lent his voice to Brighton Theatre of The Air and 2 Bit Productions audio dramas, he also finds time to record his own steampunk podcast (also entitled Tales Of New Albion) featuring original comedy material voiced by a cast of thousands (approx.) and readings of his sci-fi stories.
