No, I haven’t started podcasting. However Murder In Absentia is starting to appear in more and more podcasts around the, err, not ether but Internet.
The first one was by Joshua Calkins-Treworgy a few weeks ago.
Then came Brian Basham with Night Reads, reading aloud the first chapter of Murder In Absentia.
The latest podcast (which I am a bit late in posting) is from the guys at The Square Groot. You can listen to the full podcast here.
The writing is very tight and good.
One of the things done well is the magic. It’s really cool, and rare to see in fantasy magic not done as a trope. The magic in this book was done really well.
The world-building was really good, it painted the life in ancient Rome. Really strong writing.
Despite my personal tastes not leaning to first-person nor ancient Rome, the story-telling was good, the writing very tight. It fulfils exactly what it sets to do, describe the mystery case.
A thoroughly enjoyable read.
