The Voice of Free Planet X

True stories of fictional people, from Jadzia Axelrod


Here's the audio for the Pitch Worshop I moderated at Balticon. I like to believe the audience got something out of the workshop beyond my tendancy to grandstand.

Eric Kimball, Scott Roche  and Brent Weichsel gave some great points, and we did managed to address everyone who showed up.

The full audio of the Flying City Circus panel at Balticon! Featuring the begining of FABLES OF THE FLYING CITY Book 2, "The Mouths of the Dead," a prize giveaway, and a spirited question and answer session. The questions are very faint, but I think my answers can give you an idea of what the questions were.

Congradulations to Hugh O'Donnell winning his name in Book 2 and J.C. Hutchins for winning what is so far the only printing of Book 1.

Special thanks to Balticon and to Paul Fischer, Czar of the Balticon New Media track.
