Yesterday, the 64th issue of The End, the weekly newsletter that shines a light back on audio fiction shows after they’ve reached the finale of a season or the conclusion of the series, was sent to 1,869 inboxes around the world. If your inbox wasn’t one of them, here’s what you missed:

Featured Shows

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

🔪👹🥃 • Scott Sigler Slices: SLAY — Narrated scifi horror from Empty Set Entertainment & Realm. Evo’s take: It’s a fun romp, if you like bounty hunters, contract killers, drug dealers, and magic. And, as it turns out, I do! Also, how the episodes were created is something of interest as well. (Finale with 1 season, 35 episodes for a listening time of 17h 28m.)

🚢🪱👂 • Shipworm — Narrated scifi horror from Two-Up. Evo’s take: There’s a lot to love about this show. It’s exceedingly well produced, has top-notch actors, and is complete with a single file. Yes. That’s right. A single, almost 2-hour-long audio file. Makes listening pretty easy! (Complete with 1 season, 1 episode for a listening time of 1h 54m.)
