Lightspeed and sound!

Gristlers!  July is starting off in epic fashion.  Epic as in atmospheric steampunk war story featuring killer cyborg monkeys on an airship.  Yes, people, my story “A Song of Home, the Organ Grinds” is finally out in the latest issue of Lightspeed!  And they really gave the story and yours truly the royal treatment.  Lightspeed made the story this month’s feature and the issue’s cover art, illustrated by the very talented Saleha Chowdhury, is derived from the story.  They also podcasted the story, which makes for the second time a story of mine’s been narrated.  It’s pretty cool hearing your words spoken back to you, and Stefan Rudnicki did a wonderful job creating atmosphere and also has a real knack for sound effects… he has a killer killer monkey impression!

Lightspeed didn’t stop there.  They also gave me an Author Spotlight interview, where Gordon White asks me how I came up with this story and some of the aspects and psychology of the characters and their motivations.  It’s definitely worth checking out after you read the story and want to know the behind the scenes.  You guys will never guess how this idea of attack monkeys spawned.

Lotta links, right?  Ok, let’s recap.
