My story of death and pets appears today on the Escape Pod podcast. This marks my triumphant return – I don’t think I’ve had a story there since I took on the editing gig for a short while. Most of my stories get a podcast recording already for Lightspeed Magazine. When I realized that there was no audio version of this story, which first appeared in Asimov’s, I sent it over, and was so pleased that they took it for the podcast.
Give “Wet Fur” a listen. Have some tissues at hand. I do believe this one can be a bit of a tearjerker.
