“Long Shadow” podcast and mp3 file

M Sereno highlighted my poem “Long Shadow” in her heartfelt entry Out of Fracture. I am very grateful to see my poem included among so many of my favorite pieces.

I promised to let you know when the podcast of “Long Shadow” goes live. Here it is at Strange Horizons, together with poems by John W. Sexton, Liz Bourke, and Elizabeth R. McClellan.

I am very proud of this poem and separately, of this recording. I read “Long Shadow” in 5 voices (Journeymaker, Marsh Oracle, Biruté, Long Shadow, and Keddar); and though it is very much not perfect, I’ve put a lot into it and I would be thrilled to hear what you think about it. Since it is so long, I am also making the file available on my website separately, rather than as a part of a podcast: (click for text).
