Podcast # 3: Circulating

My third podcast features the story Circulating, which is taken from my book Spell.

This is perhaps one of my most-read stories. It was originally published on Pulp, in January 2006, under the title Circles. After its appearance in Spell, it was published in issue 4 of Fissure magazine in October 2008. Thanks also to my friend 'peaceful', for posting a link to the Pulp version on a crop circle internet forum, which no doubt attracted a fair number of readers who would otherwise not have encountered my work.

God Thing

A few years back I wrote a piece called God Thing, which was specifically crafted to be recorded as a spoken word-with music project by myself and a friend. The collaboration never happened for various reasons, but recently - following my house move and renewed enthusiasm for writing and creativity after a fairly dark period in my life - I've decided to record it all myself.

There are eight tracks altogether:

1. W9GFO
2. Black Olives
3. Fissure King
4. God, Love, Money And Other Snares
5. Will I Dream
6. Scarecrow
7. The Hills Are Alive
8. Hollowed Be Thy Meme

You can hear demo versions of some of these tracks on my myspace music page. At some point in the near future I'll be making much more polished versions of all the tracks available for download (and - possibly - on CD).

The original text of God Thing was published in my book Spell. You can read a version of Black Olives on my main myspace page. You can buy a copy of Spell here.
