Another free short story for your listening enjoyment.
Sit back, relax, pour yourself a large glass of hydrogen peroxide and baking soda (or the household cleaning product of your choice*) and listen to me reading you a short story.
The reading was recorded “as live” – so it's as near to a live performance as I can make it. I like doing this rather than over-rehearsing it. I admit that there are some mistakes, but then I probably would make errors if I read it live to you in your front room, which, by the way, can probably be arranged with a little flattery and the offer of a couple of bottles of beer.
This recording was done without a pop filter, so although I tried very hard to clean up the sound, those pops are hard to get rid of.
Anyway, I do hope that you enjoy it.
* Remember – always bleach responsibly.
