OBSIDIAN: Episode 20

Transient

The black ... is back. Today marks the debut of the second half of 7th Son: OBSIDIAN, and it's a frickin' doozy thanks to this week's powerhouse author. (If you're dying to know why OBSIDIAN was on hiatus, listen to the intro of the most recent UltraCreatives interview with author/podcaster Mur Lafferty.)

Meet Matt Wallace. He's as tall as a tree and as dangerous as Killdozer -- because Everyone Knows a Machine Cannot Kill. Except the Machine. Ferociously talented, Matt is a Parsec Award-winning author -- whose short story Delve is nominated for a 2008 Parsec for short story -- and is best known in the podcasting community for The Failed Cities Monologues and countless contributions to the exceptional short story podcast, Variant Frequencies.

Matt is also a screenwriter, and is currently working on several short- and long-form fiction projects. His short story anthology The Next Fix, published by APEX Publications, is currently available for purchase. Try Amazon.com. It will make your head explode.

This week, Matt Wallace brings us Receiver. In addition to being a perfect representation of his gritty, kick-you-in-the-balls, tear-out-your-jugular prose, Receiver is also the first full-length short story that Matt Wallace has read in podcasting. The audio was produced by Rick Stringer, creator of the Variant Frequencies podcast. Learn more about Matt's work at Matt-Wallace.net, and find Variant Frequencies at VariantFrequencies.com.
