My short-story “113 Feet” has been published by Escape Pod. Read it or listen to it here. If you choose the latter, enjoy editor Mur Lafferty’s performance.
“113 Feet” is the first short-story I wrote when I started calling myself a writer. It took several years and a lot of revisions to get it to the point of being published. It used to be 5000 words longer, for starters. And on top of that, it was actually inspired by Escape Pod – specifically, episode 147, “Pressure”, in which former editor Steve Eley said he wanted to read more underwater SF. I wrote this story in the month following that episode.
If you want to give feedback on the story, Escape Pod maintains forums for you to do so. You’ll find them here.
