I've been enjoying the fantastic science fiction podcast, StarShipSofa, for several years. They publish some remarkable short fiction in audio form with great narrators. I have been hoping that at some point a short story of mine selected to be featured in an episode of StarShipSofa. This week, that dream became a reality. I am so excited and honored to have something I've written become part of the wonderful selection of short stories this podcast consistently produces.
"Falling Sunward" is an original short story I wrote during this pandemic madness we've been going through, and I think the story reflects how I've been processing this particularly weird time to be alive. This is the story of a lone astronaut who crash-lands on Mars in a last attempt to save humanity. Tatiana Grey performs the story for StarShipSofa, and I love how she brings presence and emotion to the characters and story.
As a lover of science fiction art, this story was in part inspired by this amazing image by Magdalena Radziej.

Finally, if you check out "Falling Sunward," I please take a moment to leave a comment on the episode's page. It will mean so much to both myself and to everyone at StarShipSofa. Thank you for stopping by.
