Audio release of “The Green Infinity”

Kudzu_on_trees_in_Atlanta,_Georgia

Kudzu has fascinated me (and freaked me out) since I saw a short documentary as a kid, footage of an abandoned farmhouse being completely overtaken by the voracious vine in a matter of weeks.  Thanks to rapid time-lapse techniques and public television, I experienced the event as happening in a matter of minutes — maybe even seconds.  Years later on a road trip across the south I drove through miles of back-country highway shrouded by towering strangled forest, trees dead underneath but giving the semblance of life in a weird kind of vegetal zombification process, a green and vibrant undeath.

Here’s my fiction tribute to this slow-motion strangler of the plant kingdom, now in audio over at new Canadian venture The Centropic Oracle:

THE GREEN INFINITY.

Podcast Interview: Invaders from Planet 3

An interview is up for the podcast Invaders From Planet 3, in which Robin Shantz probes me about Watership Down, Childhood’s End, A Canticle for Leibowitz, The Bionic Woman, AInvaders_planet3rk II, and the Regencies of Georgette Heyer.

This interview took place in May 2015 in “the lair of bloginhood, located in a sub-aquatic citadel on the floor of the Bay of Fundy.”

Bonus that the lair was equipped with amazing homemade candy, too.

If you enjoy a deep eerie sadness in your dark cosmic fiction and you like free audio, give a listen to my recent reading for Issue #27 of the dark-lit magazine Three Lobed Burning Eye.

And for those so inclined, here’s a direct mp3 link to Alex reading “The Marking” by Kristi DeMeester.
