Tonight, the Czar’s Army is having a bit of trouble with the local fauna while pressing eastward across Manchuria. Their only hope? A jaded, insubordinate corporal from the Caucasus. Author Benjamin Sperduto narrates his own work.

Don’t forget that we have a Patreon campaign. For as little as a dollar or two a month you’ll be able to preview cover art, listen to the stories as they come in as well as the outtakes and flubs that end up on the cutting room floor, and chat with the staff. Our goal is to be able to buy stories at SFWA pro rates. It won’t happen overnight, but with some help from our friends and listeners, we will get there.
