Genre for the Holidays – Sounds for the Season

December 22, 2012 at 12:59 am (fantasy, horror, Links, writing) (, , , , , , , , )

One of the great oral features of the festive season is the selection of holiday episodes at my favourite genre podcasts. I thought I would share my picks and links to some winning seasonal audio tales. Here they are:

Tales to Terrify: a horror podcast with sinister flavour, this episode features a short story called The Spirit of Christmas – http://talestoterrify.com/tales-to-terrify-show-no-49-lawrence-santoro-and-james-lovegrove/

Podcastle: for fantasy fans you can find their yarn with a Christmas spin, Catching the Spirit, at http://podcastle.org/2012/12/18/podcastle-239-catching-the-spirit/

Pseudopod: Podcastle’s horror sister podcast offers a gothic Christmas tale, The Dead Sexton – http://pseudopod.org/2012/12/21/pseudopod-313-the-dead-sexton/http://pseudopod.org/2012/12/21/pseudopod-313-the-dead-sexton/

And I’ve mentioned this one before, but this year’s Wicked Women Writers competition featured holiday stories including ones for Christmas and Hanukah. You can find the full spread here: http://horroraddicts.wordpress.com/2012/08/11/horror-addicts-079-wicked-women-writers-challenge/

While they do not have any specifically holiday-themed stories, you can find some excellent speculative fiction at Drabblecast and Starship Sofa.
