Artemis Rising 5: Hecate’s Pentacle


During the month of September, PseudoPod seeks submissions to celebrate ARTEMIS RISING, a special month-long event across the Escape Artists podcasts featuring stories by any author who identifies as a woman, to any degree.

Stepping in as guest editors for our fifth annual ARTEMIS RISING event is PseudoPod Associate Editor Cecilia Dockins and Nightlight Editor Tonia Thompson.

 

Your Guest Editors:

She’s an Odyssey Writing Workshop graduate and former University of Maine: Stonecoast student, a failed academic, loner, dreamer, damn-good angler, and professional book hoarder.

Tonia Thompson, Nightlight Editor

From Tonia’s website:

I write horror, science fiction and dark fantasy. I’ve been scaring people since the second grade, when I wrote my first story based on Michael Myers. I’m pretty sure my teacher was concerned, but I turned out fine(ish).

I also write essays on racial inequality and inclusion in literature. If you don’t like my essays, you probably won’t like my fiction either. It’s cool. Just don’t send me a nasty note because I’m not your cup of tea. Don’t start none, won’t be none. (Continue Reading…)

This is Horror Award: Fiction Podcast of the Year


We’re honored to accept FOR THE SECOND TIME the This is Horror Award for the Fiction Podcast of the Year category. We would have been perfectly satisfied losing to any of the other folks we graced the shortlist with, and we are humbled by the outcome. Congratulations to all the other winners!

2017 was an amazing year for PseudoPod. We ran three stories by Ramsey Campbell, a master of the short form. We ran a classic from titan editor and writer Karl Edward Wagner which was narrated and sound bed by Anson Mount, who will soon be playing the role of Captain Christopher Pike in the Star Trek Discovery television series. We celebrated Artemis Rising for a third year, and prepared for our fourth year (go check out the five excellent stories we ran in March!) We could gush for hours about all the voices and stories, new and old, that we brought to our listeners. We hope you’ll take the opportunity to take a look at what we did this past year and peek into our back catalog.

We continued celebration our first decade of podcasting weekly short horror fiction, delivering our first anthology, For Mortal Things Unsung, and a sweet tiki mug. Our host and one of our editors participated in the second year of the Eugie Foster Memorial Award for Short Fiction. And there’s so much more! We couldn’t have done this without our tireless staff, including Dagny, Moaner, Karen, Graeme, Chelsea, Marty, Brian, Shawna, Tad, Scott, Cecilia, Cliff, Britany, Adrian, Kim, Austin, Erin, Otter, Jesse, and Victoria. We look forward to what else 2018 will bring!
