Episode 14!  In which we scandalize.

As soon as Lionel was old enough, he fled to the decadent city where he drank hard liquor from speakeasies, cursed using the Lord's name, and danced with women who wore bobbie socks and chin-length hair.

First published at Interzone, and later in Gardner Dozois' Year's Best SF.

Rachel Swirsky's short fiction has appeared in a number of magazines and anthologies and been nominated for the Hugo, the Sturgeon, the Locus Award, and the World Fantasy Award. In 2011, her novella "The Lady Who Plucked Red Flowers Beneath the Queen's Window" won the Nebula Award. Parts of "Again and Again and Again" are based on her family. In particular, on her father, who used to say 'when I was a kid, all we had to do to make adults sick was grow out your hair. I pity kids today."

ZOMG, why is there so much spam in the universe? I want to be open for comments, but all I do is delete 10 comments an hour about shoes and dates and (the weird ones) advice telling me my blog is a good start, but could be better. (Really? Negging much?) So I'm closing comments here, but I just set up a facebook page at ToastedCakePodcast. Feel free to Like it and leave any comments you'd like there. I'd love to see if you have any favorites among the stories I've run so far.

Some exciting folks coming in the next few months: I'm thrilled to be running an excerpt of a Claude Lalumière story, as well as that BRAND NEW piece I promised you from CSE Cooney. Not to mention stories from Liz Argall, Helena Bell, Wendy N Wagner, K Bird Lincoln, and Rachel Swirsky. Stay tuned!
