I forgot, this morning, to say that the PodCastle adaptation of "The Belated Burial" is now live. Have a listen. After the EscapePod adaptation of "Ode to Katan Amano," which I wasn't fond of, I was very skittish about doing more of these. But I'm much happier with what's been done with "The Belated Burial." Mostly, I wish podcasts wouldn't try to dramatize, but simply presently good readings. But I expect that's just me.

Also, I neglected to include a link to the current eBay auctions, a couple of which end tomorrow, including a copy of the trade edition of Tales from the Woeful Platypus.

Also...if you've not seen the new trailer for World of Warcraft: Cataclysm....have a look. It's amazing. Also, if you want to see examples of humanity at its most debased, glance at the comments.

Have you ever heard those 1940's radio plays where they do all the sound effects and go all out with the readings? They worked on a deliciously cheesy and innocent level.

Have had the same experience. Not just you.

For my money, a good reading is usually sufficiently dramatic without a lot of sound/special effects....of course, that didn't stop me from doing the voices when I read "Riki-tiki-tavi" to my brother and sister when they were young :)
