Off to a great start....
The first five stories from this podcast have been good, with excellent narration and production. If they can keep up this level of quality, then this should be a great podcast.
This podcast is one to watch.
I'm hoping for great things.
Good quality narration and interesting tales
Worth adding to your playlist
Two into one goes well
This is now an amalgam of two podcast streams: Fantasy Magazine and
Lightspeed. The publisher John Joseph Adams (who already has quite a track record in editing anthologies) has put the two bimonthly offerings into a single weekly story P-cast with half the material being Fantasy and Half Sci Fi. Definitely worth subscribing to this stream if you like either genre. The standard of stories has been strong with good quality narration. Lightspeed has promise and could develop into a unique and special voice.
