In The Telling: New Voices

A Reading at Engine, Featuring Douglas W. Milliken, Joshua Bodwell, Mira Ptacin, and Bill Roorbach

The latest installment of In the Telling, our semi-weekly podcast series, captures a reading that took place at Engine, a nonprofit arts organization located in Biddeford, Maine. The reading featured Slice alums who reside in Maine: Douglas W. Milliken, Joshua Bodwell, Mira Ptacin, and Bill Roorbach. As you’ll notice in the podcast, it was lively event, fueled by great prose and some delicious beer from the folks at Banded Horn Brewing Co. Our sincere thanks to Tammy Ackerman, the director of Engine, for co-hosting the event. Peter Swegart, also a Maine native, produced this issue of “In the Telling.”


Liz Mathews, More Encounters in Publishing

The latest installment of our weekly podcast series features a hilarious reading from Liz Mathews about how fights with vending machines unfold in the publishing world. Mathews curates Encounters in Publishing: Musings & Banter on Working in Publishing.

Liz Mathews composes ads for many things science fiction and fantasy. Her writing can be found in magazines, catalogs, newspapers, brochures, and books; and on bookmarks, postcards, cable television commercials, and even doorhangers all across the United States and in some parts of Canada. She lives in Brooklyn but considers the cornfields of Iowa home.

Series curator Tim Mucci has been published by Slice magazine and has done comic scriptwriting for both Dark Horse Comics and Sterling Publishing’s All-Action Classics series. He knows about UFOs, dragons, the occult and other stuff and is excited to be talking about Clark Ashton Smith on his other podcast The Double Shadow. He lives in Brooklyn with his artist wife and cat (not an artist); you can send him donuts via his twitter account: @timx13.
