Weekly, we broadcast the best in fantasy short stories, running the gammut from heart-pounding sword and sorcery, to strange surrealist tales, to gritty urban fantasy, to the psychological depth of magical realism. Our podcast features authors including Peter Beagle, Benjamin Rosenbaum, Jim C. Hines, and Cat Rambo, among others. Terry Pratchett once wrote, “Fantasy is an exercise bicycle for the mind. It might not take you anywhere, but it tones up the muscles that can.” Tune in to PodCastle each Tuesday for our weekly tale, and spend the length of a morning commute giving your imagination a work out.

PodCastle Defied Expectations

When I first heard that Escape Artists were going to launch PodCastle I was dubious. I'm more of a scifi guy and fantasy just isn't my bag. Plus, some of the fantasy stories that made it on to Escape Pod turned me off. I just wasn't all that excited about PodCastle. Until I heard the first story, that is. Lady Death had me riveted in it's elegance and suspense. If PodCastle can keep putting out yarns of that caliber then I'm in for the long haul!

Great Job! I Really Enjoy

I love fantasy of all kinds, and can honestly say that I have yet to find a story here I have not liked at least a little, and have found several I loved well enough to burn audio CDs for the car (those being #1, Come Lady Death, #11, Fourteen Experiments in Postal Delivery, and #14, The Grand Cheat, just so far). I also love Escape Pod, but some of their stories are a bit... dark... for my "happily ever after" soul. Still, though, keep up the great work!

been waiting for this...

Steve Eley and the crew at all of the Escape Artists Inc. provide a very needed outlet for short fiction of all kinds. Escape Pod and Pseudo Pod (both on itunes) are two of my favorite podcasts. Each week they provide excellent stories read excellently! I know that the crew at Escape Artists Inc. woudl not put something out that does not meet those standards. Podcastle will be AWESOME!!! In the mean time go listen you'll be glad you did!
