Thanks for letting us know and sorry you've been so ill. Hope to be hearing your maleficent mellifluity again soon  ;D

In the meantime, I heartily recommend Cast Macabre if you need a weekly horror fix.  Barry's been doing amazing work over there and he deserves more recognition.

I'd like to second that. Cast Macabre is pretty awesome.

I've just finished listening to Ashputtle which was one of the most mesmerising pieces of horror I've heard in a long time.

I like Cast Macabre too, though I'm a little biased because they bought the first thing I ever sent to them.  (And did a really great reading of it, too.)

I'd say CM rocks too, but, y'know, conflict of interest... although I guess there's nothing wrong in saying "Hey, check it out!"

By the way: Cast Macabre rawks!

Al, really sorry to hear you were so sick and glad you're on the mend. Having seen your Twitter pic, you did look rather fetching... err, I mean appropriate... in blue. And not in an Avatar way.

My <3 of Pseudopod remains undiminished!

(also... I appear to be turning into a 12-yr old girl what with the <3 and all)

Hey, cool!

Which one was yours?

I did Metastasis.  Hopefully you'll enjoy when you get back that far.  It's relatively recent; Episode 27.

Nice! I listened to that one when it came out. Loved the way that the cancer seemed to have hold of the city too.

The production was spot on too. It's so difficult to get the backing music right for things like this, but those guys got it just right.

Coming soon to the Syfy channel:  SS Doomflu.

Glad you are feeling better Alasdair and I am eagerly awaiting your return!

When will all the rhetorical questions end?

I thought the doomflu was but a myth!

Thanks for the update as I too was beginning to wonder.  I understand the doomflu.  Our last six weeks has been an Iliad of Illness as well.

Looking forward to new stories, I'm just now getting caught up so I wasn't too put out by the disruption of service.

based on the foolish pride of an arrogant young warrior who acts selfishly until an old man pleads with him to remember the code he claims to follow and treat the dead with dignity?

I'm so glad to hear that nothing worse than doomflu has happened to Pseudopod. I've been with it literally since the beginning when it split off clawed its way, fully formed, from the bloody body cavity of Escape Pod.

I shall patiently await your triumphant return.

I wonder if it would be possible to do a quick announcement to podcast subscribers that PP will be back on-air shortly?  I imagine there are many listeners who do not read these forums who still have no idea what's going on.

I'd like to hear my options, so I could weigh them, what do you say?
Five pounds?  Six pounds? Seven pounds?

That seems like a good idea, especially since PP is also closed to submissions right now, some fans might be worrying.

Dear Pseudopod...

I cn haz podast plz?

OK sorry.  It's just that this seems (albeit unintentionally) the second lengthy hiatus in the last year for Pseudopod.

Wanted to echo the above posters - do please let us know what's happening.  Is there work in progress we can expect to see soon?  Anything we can do to facilitate this?

It looks like an announcement will be coming very soon.   Please keep chairs in a locked, upright position.
