James Patrick Kelly gets Audible

12/02/2007. Contributed by Jessica Martin

author pic, a seller of audiobooks online, has launched SFF editor and author James Patrick Kelly's StoryPod, a for-pay podcast that features Kelly reading his own work. Subscribers to StoryPod 1.0 will get thirteen stories delivered weekly.

Three more thirteen story sequences will follow. Over the course of the next year Kelly will read fifty-two of his previously-published stories.

This audio collection represents most of the short fiction for which Kelly, a two-time Hugo winner, is known. The StoryPod homepage is

"This project grew out of my Free Reads podcast," said Kelly, "which will continue with a reading of my novel LOOK INTO THE SUN. I do all the production myself. In effect, I have become my own publisher of audiobooks. The idea behind StoryPod is to mashup the traditional audiobook and the new form of podcasting. I introduce each story, read it and then in an afterword I discuss some of the ideas behind the story, or talk about how it came to be written."

StoryPod will kick off with Kelly's Hugo and Nebula nominated story "Rat." Forthcoming in the first thirteen week sequence will be Hugo finalist "Bernardo's House" and Nebula finalists "Standing In Line With Mister Jimmy," "Solstice," and "Mr. Boy."
