Phil Rossi, that magnificent beast, writes in to remind us of his podcast novel Crescent. Check out his promo |MP3| and then, if you likes what you hears, check it out either on the Crescent website or over on Podiobooks.com. Here’s the description:
Some places are far darker than deep space. Places where the shadows smile. Where men go mad and lovers go missing. These stygian corners of existence are where reality is stretched thin and something hungry is waiting just outside the corner of your eye.
Turn out the lights, take a deep breath, and dare to visit one of these places.
Crescent is dark science fiction at it’s most visceral. Phil Rossi weaves a tale that is reminiscent of old school Stephen King but with a shiny, new set of tricks and an appetite to terrify. There’s sex. There’s corruption. There’s horror. And after you sweat your way through the first chapter, there’s plenty more to keep you awake at night.
The podiobook’s been popular enough to get picked up, like a select few before it, by Dragon Moon Press. According to Rossi it’ll be out in its paperbook version in 2009.
