Not Really Episode 10: Yvette Tan's THE BRIDGE (Full Version)

You're probably thinking, "The first Sunday of the month came and went...Where on earth is the new episode?"

It's not really here... and unfortunately there won't be (technically) a new audio story out this month. I'm not really in the habit of making excuses, but a sickness and some personal affairs, did make the aspect of audio production difficult. The challenge of story permissions and voice casting (hence the call for narrators) didn't make the situation easier.

Hopefully in the next weeks, I'll get some things sorted out.

You know what does help? Moral support. If you help me spread the word about this site and what it aims to do, I'd be very happy. You don't know how much high site traffic cheers me up.

Which leads me to: there are people who volunteered to help in one way or the other, and I'm truly grateful for their contribution. So, big thanks to all our authors, narrators, Filcols (Hi, Bebang!), publishers, unofficial PR (Hi, Angelo Ancheta! Charles Tan! Tin Lao!), techie peeps (Hi, Jar! Osc!) ... and there's probably a lot more I've forgotten to include in this list (so I will make sure I thank them properly in a decent write-up). My heart goes out to all of you. Thank you.

By the way, so far I've received narrator audition samples, and I'm quite pleased! If you're interested, the call is still open. Send in a audition recording. All rightee.

Last year, we featured an abridged version of Yvette Tan's THE BRIDGE. In this pseudo-episode, I'm featuring the story again in its uncut glory, voiced wonderfully by author Nikki Alfar. (It did occur to me that I'm beginning to be too fond of Nikki, with this refeature coming after last month's "Adrift on the Street Formerly Known as Buendia". But she's a goddess, so, it's only normal.)
