Each episode of Short Story Cast features a couple of short stories from a wide variety of styles and genres. So one episode you might be in floating around in space, the next you could be in the Wild West or seducing a Countess for her fortune. I don’t know, it’ll be varied but always interesting.

Funny, nice to listen to.
Just what I'm looking for, lovely narration, volumes all perfect, nicely done. Clever stories. 😃
I've enjoyed every one of these short stories. I especially like that James gives a short summary of the inspiration for each story.
Keep going, this is a great podcast :)
