Is the narrator just mispronouncing "mausoleum" or is that actually a totally different word? (I clicked the link to see the full text so I could check for myself but it brings me to a blank page...?)

PodCastle 467: How I Became Coruscating Queen Of All The Realms, Pierced The Obsidian Night, Destroyed A Legendary Sword, And Saved My Heart’s True Love

by Baker and Dovey
read by Aimee Kuzenski
hosted by Graeme Dunlop
First published in No Sh!t There I Was….

Rated R for adult content

No shit, there I was, knee-deep in necromantic weasels in the lair of the mad wizard-king, when Korgar and Elutriel both decided it was time to win my affections once and for all. Elutriel had summoned an aura of resistance, an iridescent bubble free of weasels. He struggled forwards, heaving against the weight of their wasted furry bodies.

Baker & Dovey is a gestalt entity which currently inhabits two human fools separated by the Atlantic ocean and several thousand miles of dirt. When not authoring ludicrous parodies of childhood imaginings, the entity lives in the pauses between words, in the spaces between heartbeats, in the rats between the walls. UNESCO has not responded to e-mails asking whether Baker & Dovey is a global cultural asset or a sign of humanity’s inevitable return to the muck whence it came.



Aimee Kuzenski writes and narrates fiction. She went to school for both acting and electrical engineering and has trained in Filipino Martial Arts for the past eight years. She currently lives in Minneapolis, MN with a hairless cat named Beatrice.

Hi,

I'm hoping someone can help me. I'm seeking the title of a story where these are the salient points:
  • It takes place on a spaceship with the whole crew asleep
  • Team members wake at various times to tend to the ship
  • There is a boy who once he woke up for his turn was unable to be placed back in cryogenic sleep- he was somehow alergic to the chemicals used in the process
  • The whole plot of the story was from his perspective and how he dealt with aging while everyone around him, including his parents, stayed the same age.
     
  • i think it was written in a journal format

I thought I heard it in Escape Pod, but I might be confused about that.

Any help is appreciated.

-Marc

Oh, hey, can you please turn the intro music back up?  It's my tuesday morning theme song, and if I listen to it loud, the robot lady (much as I lurv her) ends up shouting in my ears.


Hope I got the balance better this week, Jenni?

Loved the main character, such a distinctive voice, but not sure what she did the Neville and/or his sister. I know this would make much more sense if I had read the source material and that annoys me. I wish the story could stand on its own better.

It seemed to me that she had gypped him out of some large gem, which she names early on.

I wasn't sure what was going on, but I was sure I didn't like either of the characters.

Reminded me of the terrifying afterlife in Steven King's "Revival". As an atheist this legitimately terrifies
Me. I'm happy the girl got the better of him, even though she became a monster herself. I also love stories that span history into a post-human future.

Non-interference stories I always find fascinating.
