Alethea Narrates: My Generations Shall Praise (Escape Pod 616)

Henderson and Kontis

“My Generations Shall Praise”: Author Samantha Henderson and Narrator Alethea Kontis

Samantha Henderson’s “My Generations Shall Praise” was first published in Interzone, November 2016, and reprinted in The Year’s Best Science Fiction 34, edited by Gardner Dozois.

I think maybe the editors were worried I wouldn’t want to do this performance–it’s a dark one. The MC is a baby-killing sociopath on death row, about to have her brain erased and mapped over by an affluent relation dying of cancer.

But as an actress…WOW. What a voice this character has! This might be my best performance so far.

Moreover: I think Katy would be excessively proud of me.
