There's nothing quite like the fresh bracing air of interesting times. Or the sea. Wulf Moon narrates a nautical adventure with a topological twist, and Osgoode takes us on another trip to the Zen Room. 
Author Liam Hogan is an Oxford Physics graduate and award winning London based writer. His short story "Ana", appears in Best of British Science Fiction 2016  from NewCon Press, and his twisted fantasy collection, "Happy Ending Not Guaranteed", is published by Arachne Press. Find him online at, and @LiamJHogan.
Narrator Wulf Moon feasted on fantasy as a child when he lived with his Chippewa grandmother. He begged stories from her every night—fireside tales that fired his imagination. If Moon had a time machine, those are the days he would go back to. Since he doesn’t have a time machine, he tells stories. He is podcast director at Future Science Fiction Digest. Learn more at

Things get weird in a shadow dimension populated by echoes of the film industry. Matt Dovey narrates. File under: Slipstream
Author Paul R Hardy is currently on a quest to find the adorable pets, eccentric family members and amusing work history required in an author biography. He occasionally takes short breaks to write stories for venues such as Unidentified Funny Objects, Diabolical Plots, StarShipSofa and Escape Pod.
Narrator Matt Dovey is very tall, very British, and probably drinking a cup of tea right now. His surname rhymes with "Dopey", but any other similarities to the dwarf are coincidence. He has short science fiction and fantasy stories all over the place: find out more at, or follow him on Twitter @MattDoveyWriter.

It's a mother of a double feature and we guarantee it won't make you feel all warm and snuggly inside. No, not at all. Alex Ford and Maria Rose narrate. Rated Dark.
Author Sheliah Lindsey was neither born nor raised under a rock, but does claim she was as an excuse for how behind she is on popular culture. She currently resides in Texas, still not under a rock despite her continued insistence to the contrary, where she divides her time unevenly between reading, writing, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
When narrator Alex Ford isn't rocking around the nation in her band, Ford Theatre Reunion, she's holed up in her guest room following a different passion: recording audio books and editing manuscripts. An avid reader and writer, she delights in helping people bring their creativity to life. You can check out her exploits, mystery bruises, and a most handsome cat on facebook or instagram.
Author Maria Haskins is a Swedish-Canadian writer and translator. She writes speculative fiction and poetry, and currently lives just outside Vancouver with a husband, two kids, and a very large black dog.  Her work has appeared in Flash Fiction Online, Shimmer, Cast of Wonders, and elsewhere. Find out more on her website,, or follow her on Twitter, @mariahaskins.
Narrator Maria Rose is a graphic designer, writer, astrologer, classicist. Sometimes saturnine, mostly eccentric. You can hear her audiobook narration work in “Messengers of the Right” from University of Press Audiobooks or at GlitterShip. Learn more at
