octovember short story podcast: the taxi driver

With apologies for the pause between broadcasts, here’s a new fiction podcast for you. This story began on pure observation, sitting in a gay bar in San Cristóbal de las Casas, Chiapas, back in 2008. It’s going to be in a collection of my stories which I am happy to announce will be published by UQP in mid-2012! Hurrah.

UQP have been working hard at conversion and Gone has just been released in all the ebook formats, so it should be popping up in various places over the next few weeks (i’m told with the exception of North America, but maybe there’s a workaround). It is definitely available at indie bookshop Readings already. Go and give Frank a lift!

Now for the story:

it is prohibited to enter this unit in an inconvenient state

I think the few Spanish words in this story are pretty self-explanatory, but leave a comment if you have any questions.

One more thing: as a courtesy to my publisher, and to save myself from becoming a one-woman audio archive, I’m going to be leaving this and future podcasts up for three months or so and then taking them down. Which means the back catalogue will vanish soon, if you want to make use of it…
