TTF30—'The Day The Numbers Went Away' Audiobook

Minister White, the smirking, climate-denying politician who delights in turning back refugee boats and frequently interrupts this intelligent woman to brush her concerns off without a second thought, is totally not based on anybody in Australian politics today (so please don't sue me). But if you want to chat about it, you can hit up the Talking Fiction Discord Server, or head over to the Terry Talks Fiction Facebook Page!  And if you're interested in signing up to the email list (it's free, by the way), you can get a copy of this story sent to you in PDF and ePub format, along with the reflection on how the story was built (and the problems I ran into while making it - not all solved, as you might have noticed). And finally, if you liked the story (or the podcast in general) please consider leaving a rating and review on iTunes so the podcast audience can continue to grow! Appreciate it heaps :-) Talk soon. Intro/outro music for this episode is 'Elevators Need Rock Too' by Spence, courtesy of the YouTube Audio Library.

TTF29—Lighthouse: An Anthology: A Review

What do you get when you have a bunch of GenreCon Presenters clustered at a table in fancy dress? An incredible anthology of fifteen mesmerising, spooky stories! Here's what I thought of 'Lighthouse: An Anthology' And what a bunch of talent was involved in bringing the anthology together! Besides Bianca Millroy, the editor, contributors included Kat Carr, Carleton Chinner, Jo Edgar-Baker, Sophia Evans, Kylie Fennell, Chris Foley, Kelly Lyonns, Alyssa MacKay, Brooke Maggs, Anna McEvoy, Bianca Millroy, Lea Scott, Sharyn Swanepoel, Lane Thornton and Jodie Woodward. Which is your favourite story of the collection (yes, you can answer this if you're one of the authors ;-P)? Let me know over on the Discord server, Facebook Page, Twitter or by email (terrytalksfiction[at]gmail.com). And if you want to get some free stories of your own, check out the Terry Talks Fiction Website or sign up to the mailing list to get new stories emailed to you every month (and the entire back catalogue for the year, to boot!) Lastly, if you enjoyed the podcast please consider rating/reviewing it on iTunes or wherever you rate your podcasts: every bit of feedback helps the show's visibility and means the world to me.

TTF28—WandaVision: It's Not That Kind of Show

Not every problem can be neatly wrapped up in a 22-minute-long episode (allowing time for commercial breaks) and given a happy ending. But WandaVision's incredible use of decades of the American sitcom formula gave us something different. Something wonderful—and something *very* MCU.  What do you think is next for Wanda Maximoff and The Vision? Will they both be back at the movies, or is one of them forever doomed to only appear in TV spinoffs? Continue the conversation over on the Talking Fiction Discord Server, the Facebook Page, or Twitter. Or even manifest an email to terrytalksfiction[at]gmail.com! Honestly, I could have talked about this show for hours, and can't wait to get into the weeds with you all! You can also sign up to get my original stories direct to your inbox each month, too :-) Intro/outro music for this episode is 'Elevators Need Rock Too' by Spence, courtesy of the YouTube Audio Library.
