Ink and Ash: A Short Story Podcast

Feb 19, 2020

Today on a special encore presentation of Stories of Yore and Yours, get an update on what's going on behind the scenes with this pesky hiatus, along with an encore presentation of one of my favorite stories, "Asleep in Armageddon!"

Ray Bradbury’s most well-known work is the novel Fahrenheit 451. But he wasn’t just a novelist. Ray Bradbury was an extremely prolific short story writer. The father of modern sci-fi/fantasy brings us a wild tale of a man who lands on what he thinks is a deserted planet, that through a stroke of luck has a breathable atmosphere. But all is not as it seems. Join Shawn Ennis in experiencing this week’s story. Whether or not you’ve read “Asleep in Armageddon,” you’ve never heard it like this!
