“Babel Probe” audio now available at The Drabblecast

The other day, the folks at Drabblecast ( asked if I had any stories under 2500 words. I sent them a few, and then the day before yesterday I received a surprise email: they were doing a podcast with a song relating to Ancient Near Eastern civilization, and could they possibly buy “Babel Probe” right away? They sent me a contract, I sent it back, and the podcast is available TODAY.

It is a most excellent audio performance of the story, with music and sound effects and everything, and you can hear it here or download it from iTunes. FREE!

This is the story for which thepussinboots drew this awesome picture (click to embiggen):
