Before I get to the goods, I’d love your feedback on a couple of things I’m considering changing.

I’m considering an additional newsletter that is a monthly rundown of my recommendations. I’ve heard from more than one person that their listening cup overfloweth. This newsletter would stay weekly to keep up with the recently completed stuff (which is, for me at least, a great discovery tool!).

I’m also considering adding all of the trailers (or episode snippets) to the end (heh) of The End Last Week, This Week, and Next Week, the companion podcast to this newsletter. Currently, I only play the trailers/snippets of my recommendations to keep it short. Adding all trailers would make it longer, but I’d move them to the end as to keep the [checks numbers] 28 of you who regularly download the episodes from having to listen to everything if you didn’t want to.

Hit reply and tell me what you think of those two things, would you? And let’s get started.


Featured Audio Fiction

These are my personal recommendations for great-sounding audio fiction. As with all things in life, YMMV.

Dramatized horror from Harlan Guthrie — Deviser

Son wakes up aboard a spaceship bound for earth in an effort to recolonize. What he discovers, however, will change everything he knows about his world and himself.

(Evo’s note: Yes, I highlighted this show in last week’s issue. But I think it’s one of the best shows I’ve listened to this year, so I’m choosing to feature it sooner than normal!)

Dramatized thriller from Terry Miles — Rabbits
