As I mentioned in the podcast for this month, Amazing Stories is back from the dead. First published in 1926, the magazine has returned as a fiction/blog hybrid. Now I haven’t broken into the fiction markets myself, but I do blog a bit, and Steve Davidson, the editor in chief, has agreed to syndicate my podcast over there.
You can check it all out here:
The website is just coming online for the first time, so there might be a little construction dust, but that should settle soon. My content will be posted over the rest of January.
After the break, you can read the full press release:
This month has been a tumultuous one – travel, holidays, and illness. Podcasted fiction seems to have also had a hard time, December representing the weakest month for fiction that I have yet seen. Even so, we shake off the snow from our cloaks and gather round the fire to discuss the best stories from December and the year at large!

Here on the Synthetic Voices podcast, I see a LOT of fiction over the course of a calendar year. Now, the 2012th year of the Common Era is coming to a close, so I thought I’d look back over my selections and pick out the cream of the crop. The podcast has only been running since March, but I have been writing a “Top Picks” list since at least January of 2012, so all of those stories were eligible in addition to those featured on the podcast.
The winners below were painstakingly plucked from over 30 initial candidate stories, so congrats to all the authors, narrators, producers, and editors involved!
