A most curious double feature to honor of the approaching holiday. Richard Elen and Gabrielle Riel narrate.
Author Deborah L. Davitt was raised in Reno, Nevada, but received her MA in English from Penn State. She currently lives in Houston, Texas, with her husband and son. She’s known for her Edda-Earth novels, Rhysling-nominated poetry, and increasing number of short-story publications. For more about her work, please see www.edda-earth.com.
Narrator Richard Elen is a recording engineer, writer, and designer based in Cambridge, England. He is Technical Director of internet radio station Radio Riel, and co-host/editor of Designing Worlds, a weekly online TV show about design and designers in virtual environments. He also creates marketing materials for clients in the consumer and professional audio fields.
Author Susan Taitel grew up in Chicago. She now lives in Minnesota. She has not yet resigned herself to the winters but has been known to say “oh yeah, you betcha” unironically. Susan is a Viable Paradise graduate and has been published by McSweeneys.net. She blogs at the imaginatively named susantaitel.com.
Narrator Gabrielle Riel is the General Director of Radio Riel (http://radioriel.org), an Internet radio station with seven audio streams that has been bringing music and audio dramas to audiophiles, bibliophiles, history-lovers, Jazz babies, Classical music enthusiasts, Steampunks and other assorted geeks since June 2007.
