Earlier this year, “A Non-Hero’s Guide to the Road of Monster” was narrated and podcasted by Podcastle. Earlier this week, I found out this episode has been nominated for the Parsec Award in the category of Best Speculative Fiction: Short Form!
The Parsec Award was first started in 2006 to honor Speculative Fiction Podcasting. Every year fans submit their nominations and from them, a steering committee chooses the finalists. Then, a panel of judges chooses the winner.
I’m so excited that this story has been nominated! Special thanks to Khaalidah Muhammed-Ali and Jen R. Albert, the editors of Podcastle and the narrator, Mike Flinchum.
It’s uncertain when winners will be announced, but I’ll keep you posted! (The pun, of course, is intended.)
