Prelude To A Scream - Episode 06

Immediately after recording Episode 05, I recorded Episode 06 of Prelude to a Scream. (I was off work for a few days after all and had a tiny bit of time on my hands) I thought I'd wait a few weeks to release it, though, which worked out well, because my schedule at work since early June has been hectic at best) -- I've already started recording episode 07 and am hoping to be able to keep up a schedule of monthly podcasts and including full stories within each post. Let's see if I can keep up that schedule, particularly given my track record on getting out new podcasts.

This episode features my short story "Nervous Twitching" which was originally published in NorthWords magazine in the Fall of 1996 along with commentary about the writing of the story. "Nervous Twitching" was reprinted in my book ONE HAND SCREAMING, which is a collection of some of my previously published fiction and poetry.

Unlike the "cute" snowman story in Episode 05, this one's a bit more graphic and adult in nature and content. There's blood, a beheading and a surrealistic disturbing scene. So be warned before you listen. Not necessarily for younger ears or queasy stomachs.

But for those with less sensitive ears and stomachs, I hope you enjoy Nervous Twitching . . .

I'm not sure I understand the question, Anon. Are you asking about something written in the notes here or something about the story?
