The Taddle Creek Talking Magazine is now online. I was thrilled with novelist extraoridaire, John Degan's reading of my poem, he's so cool.
Below is some stuff about the launch and this issue from Taddle Creek:
[A]ll-new fiction and poetry by the likes of Gil Adamson, Gary Barwin, Chris Chambers, Evie Christie, Sara Heinonen, Lee Henderson, Heather Hogan, Alexandra Leggat, Chris Michalski, Patrick Rawley, Stuart Ross, and Adrienne Weiss.
Plus, illustrated fiction by Claudia Dávila, a profile of the dashing R. M. Vaughan, a look back at The Varsity Chapbook, People Around Here, and more, all topped off with a cover by the award-winning Michael Cho.
[E]very single word of the summer issue (except for Stuart Ross’s story) is available in audio format, from contents to comic, via free downloadable MP3s, right here on the Taddle Creek Information Superhighway Location on the Internetwork. (You can stream the tracks too—but not through Firefox …)
When downloaded, the tracks are coded to play in the order their print counterparts appear in the magazine, so you can sit back and follow along without too much page turning. Some tracks are bigger than others, so have patience if you’re downloading.
Along with many of the above-mentioned authors, the audio issue of Taddle Creek features the vocal stylings of Moe Berg, Ryan Bigge, Ryan Blakely, Andy Boorman, Jeanie Calleja, Kevin Connolly, Brian Joseph Davis, John Degen, Terri Favro, Gabriela Hahn, Jenny Hall, Alfred Holden, Dave Lapp, Derek McCormack, Nathaniel G. Moore, Gord Rand, Paul Vermeersch, and Paul Bellini as the voice of Taddle Creek.
