“Let Me Sleep” free podcast story is up!

I was invited by the amazing Philippa Ballantine to participate in “Chronicles of the Order,” a podcast short story collection based on her newest novel, Geist, published by Ace. Geist is the story of a fantastic world where ghosts and spirits are very really and do serious harm, and only members of the Order stand between them and the mortal they seek to destroy.

As you can imagine, I jumped at the chance to write something for Philippa and so I put together a lovely little horror story about murder, revenge, an abusive lover, and a desperate widow. The tale, “Let Me Sleep,” is free to download here. Be sure to listen to the other episodes as well! These stories are great!

  1. I simply can’t ‘do’ audiobooks, podcasts or the like. Is this available as readable text, or should I feed the audio into a speech-to-text program?

  2. Steve,

    I’ll ask Philippa Ballantine about that. The podcast is free to download, but I don’t know if she plans to make a text version available. I’ll let her know you’re interested and see what she says!
