#ShortStoryMonth Day Twenty-Five — Audio Short Fiction


What Do You Hear In These Sounds?

I love audiobooks, which will surprise no one who follows my blog, but it bears repeating. If I spend too much time focusing on something near me (especially back-lit somethings) I get headaches and migraines, so especially when I’m working on a writing project, it can be audiobooks outweighing print books in my consumption on a regular basis. But even when my eyes don’t need a break, walking the dog—which I do four or five times a day—is made a wee bit less tedious with an audiobook.

Audiobook short fiction is fairly easy to find, especially if you’re willing to check out a podcast or two. I have a few I follow: GlittershipLevar Burton Reads, and Beneath Ceaseless Skies. Podcast short fiction’s upswing has been such a joy to enjoy—especially with how much of it I’ve been able to find with queerness.

I do also pick up anthology and collection audiobooks through Audible (I have a subscription there), and have been lucky enough to have a few of my own tales recorded in audio format through those collections. Fool For Love, This is How You Die, and Foolish Hearts, all of which contain a story by me as well as many super-talented authors, are available.

What about you? Do you listen to audiobooks, and if you do, do you have a favourite source of audio shorts specifically?
