The July issue of Apex Magazine is now online for your reading pleasure!
I had a BLAST reading this month’s audio fiction: “A Multiple Choice Love Story” by Terra LeMay. It was a fun read, because of all the parenthetical inserts and possible alternatives as the story goes on — it was a challenge to read aloud that I took up immediately. I had to decide what voices I was going to read the parenthesis in…a different enough voice so that the listener would still have the same awesome experience as reading all the grammatical paradigms, but not an accent that would be too distracting.

Don’t be too confused when you click over — the title listed is “Shrödinger’s Pussy.” When you click to play the audio, you’ll hear me tell you it’s “A Multiple Choice Love Story.” Such is the way of ever-shifting titles in publishing…we just like to keep you on your toes.It’s our was of thinking outside the box.

I just finished listening to this. I had SO MUCH fun listening to it, and thank you so much for reading it. When I saw an audio version had been recorded, my first thought was, “Holy shit! I bet that was a challenge for the reader!”
I routinely read my prose out loud while I’m writing, at some point in the process, so I’ve done it myself, but it’s my story and I still would have been daunted by trying to read it for an audience.
I love your reading. It made me laugh and smile and see my story in a whole new way. Also, you’re my first. I’ve never actually ever heard anyone else read my work out loud before, except me (and my Macbook’s “Alex” voice, if I need to hear it flat without emphasis, for some reason.)
Thank you so much!
Oh, Terra, I am so, SO tickled that you’re happy with the production. Hooray!!! And GREAT story. Well done to us both!
