Tina Connolly does a fantastic job reading my humorous flash fiction piece “Immeasurable” on her Parsec winning Toasted Cake podcast. If you have 10 minutes to spare, give it a listen to episode 167 on the Toasted Cake site.
Tina Connolly is the author of the Ironskin trilogy from Tor Books, and the Seriously Wicked series, from Tor Teen. Her books have been finalists for the Nebula, Norton, and World Fantasy awards. We met a few years ago while she was leading a writers workshop.
I actually submitted something else to her podcast, but she recalled the funny piece I’d written while on retreat and asked about it. I’m glad she still found it intriguing.
When the story was first published in Nature magazine, I wrote an article about my inspiration for the story.
In the podcast, I like how Tina observes after the story, “..and personally, as someone who loves setting goals and checking things off, the Metric sounds both useful and seductive.”
Honestly? I’d want one.
