I subscribe to about a dozen podcasts in iTunes. Some are fiction-related, other discuss travel, others talk about health and wellbeing, and some are pure geekery. Sometimes I listen to them at home, but most of the time it's at the desk job, while I'm sitting in front of the computer. It's a fun and cool medium.

And so, after much consideration and deliberation, I've decided to start up one myself. It went live early this morning.

It's called Lies and Little Deaths: A Virtual Anthology.

This was actually the title of my not-ready-for-prime-time short story collection, but the podcast is not any kind of replacement (or apology) for the collection. The focus will be on my published short fiction, along with story notes (because I know that some people, other writers mostly, are interested in that stuff), as well as assorted other burblings. I like reading my fiction aloud to people, and the podcast will be a natural extension of that, as well as an audioblog.

The idea is to expose even more people to my fiction, those people who might not have time to sit down and read my stories, but can download the podcasts and listen to them on the train, or at work, or wherever.

I won't be doing this every week, because I would run out of material, but I don't want it to be monthly either. Maybe once every few weeks.

It'll be an experiment. If people get some enjoyment out of it, and I have fun doing it, then I'll keep going. If I suck at it, or it becomes a burden or too much of a time-sink, then I'll stop.

I'm definitely looking for feedback too. If I'm not enunciating clearly enough, or the background music's too intrusive, I want to know.

So please, go visit virtualantho.blogspot.com and take a listen. The first podcast is only sixteen minutes long, so it won't take up too much of your time.

Thanks.

In the interests of feedback, I've put a link up at the LLD podcast to a Podtrac survey, which I will duplicate thusly:

Podtrac Survey

If you've listened to the podcast, take a few minutes to fill the thing out. I know I've only done one show so far, but I want to find out how to make it better. Also, feel free to email me as well.

Thanks,

The Management

Episode 2 is now online. I gab for a bit about Buddhism and read "Enlightenment." A bit longer than the previous one and a half episodes at almost 26 minutes, but all good stuff. Check it out if you have a little time, or, even better, subscribe to the podcast.

Episode 2.5 of Lies and Little Deaths is now up for your listening pleasure, a short one this week. You know, I said at the beginning that this wouldn't be a weekly thing, but the last three (including this one) have been about a week apart. I'm having a lot of fun with it, and putting it out on a regular schedule keeps me honest.

So if you're a subscriber, it should now be sitting patiently in your podcatcher queue.

I've also added transcripts to all the shows so far, for those of you who may be hearing-impaired.

When I can get my internettery able to handle speeds above my increasingly normal 4.8 Kbps (thank you, Telstra!) or nothing, I'll look forward to hearing your podcasts. I wish I could listen to them now.

I was about to offer to send you a CD, but I've only done four shows so far. If you're still having connection problems, say, in the middle of 2006, let me know and I'll zip something over to you.

That would be a treat, Jason. By then the telephony might be string and used paper cups.

Episode 3 of Lies and Little Deaths is now online, wherein I read a guest story: "The Specialist's Hat" by Kelly Link. It's the longest podcast I've done yet, at almost 40 minutes, but I applied some of the tips and tricks I learned at PodcasterCon, and I think it's the best episode to date. Go on and give it a listen.

Hope y'all enjoy.

I've re-recorded and mixed my two stories previously podcasted at LLD, and have uploaded them without all the music and talky bits. Just the fiction, baby. If you're interested, they're now available for mp3 download at my LiveJournal.

Been falling down on the job over here. Two new episodes are now online:

Episode 3.5, where I review Looking for Jake by China Mieville and How We Are Hungry by Dave Eggers, and talk about PodcasterCon, LLD news, Chinese New Year, The Wal-Mart Effect, novel progress and Moleskine notebooks.

Episode 4, where I read my story "The Artists Pentaptych" and rant at length about culinary choices at cultural events and the recent Oprah / James Frey dust-up.

Episode 5.5 of Lies and Little Deaths: A Virtual Anthology has at long last been uploaded. In this episode, I address Moira Russell's response to my recent James Frey rant, talk about Geoff Ryman winning the Tiptree, pimp the V for Vendetta film and Justine Larbalestier's Magic Lessons, mention the groovy new literary journal A Public Space, read aloud my review of Dreams of the Compass Rose, and talk about why you should sell reprint rights to your fiction.

This episode was completely scripted at 5,800 words, and lasts 38 minutes and 25 seconds.

Enjoy!
