Read me a story?

Posted on August 11, 2006

I’ve recently found out about Cory Doctorow’s Podcast (via the latest TWiT) and being somewhat of a fan of his writings, I decided to check it out.

So I went there and downloaded the 4 latest episodes, which together cover a full new story that Cory had just finished writing.

In the podcast he essentially reads us the story and I find it extremely amusing and entertaining to be read a story first-hand, by the author himself.

He makes it quite clear that he considers the work still very rough but I kind of like to hear it almost as it first come out onto the paper, I find it very genuine this way. And, of course, something “quite rough” from an author such as Cory is always light years ahead of the “finished” work most of us could ever produce anyway so it’s all a bit relative, isn’t it? ;-)

Needless to say, I am now subscribed to yet another podcast and eagerly await further fiction to be seamlessly delivered to my iPod one of these days.
