This week's OBSIDIAN short story episode begins with a much-chagrined J.C. pleading for your help to make nice-nice with the Podcasting Karma Gods. Why? Well, he totally blew a promise to fellow podcaster Guy David to promote Guy's ultra-cool OBSIDIAN-inspired "Night Guy" podcast episode. So please -- after you listen to this episode of OBSIDIAN -- check out Guy David's blackout version of The Night Guy.
On to this week's short story, titled Nemesis, written and narrated by Mark Yoshimoto Nemcoff. This is the first part of an epic suspense-filled novellette; its conclusion will debut next week. If you like what you hear, be sure to email Mark and tell him so. You can find Mark's contact information at MarkYoshimotoNemcoff.com.
In J.C.'s intro "talky talk," he (doesn't) pimp:
- John Alpha for President
- Cool deets about his new novel, Personal Effects: Dark Art, which can be heard in J.C.'s UltraCreatives interview with Matthew Wayne Selznick
- The easily-accessible blog post for the first installment in J.C.'s serialized text tale, 7th Son: Runner
- Two incredible must-read thrillers: Deep Storm by Lincoln Child and Hide by Lisa Gardner. He's currently reading His Majesty's Dragon by Naomi Novick (good so far), and John Steakley's Armor and Vampire$ are next in the queue
Coming up next on 7th Son: OBSIDIAN: An incredible and poignant contribution from "The Bitterest Pill" creator Dan Klass, more "Voices from the Darkness" episodes, and -- if J.C. can get his shit together -- an OBSIDIAN Clone Line episode.
- Guy David's OBSIDIAN-themed Night Guy episode
- New World Orders podiobook
