  1. Hello, one and all!

    I finished the Predestination podcast a little while ago, and I’ve been catching up on all the special features that you’ve tossed out like tideovers to your Resistance Members/Crack Addicted Monkey Resistance Agents in between the interminable gaps between Episodes.

    Dan, you already know what I think of your novel. I’ve loved it since I first saw the drafts snippets you’d fling my way many moons ago. That being said, I’m going to say one thing. I think the production job you did with this podiobook/podcast novel simply raises the bar a couple dozen notches. I may be new to this game, but I think this medium brings something fundamentally new and vibrant to the field.

    It’s one thing to read about a panic-stricken escape from a cult compound. It’s another to hear the crash, to all but smell the incense, and all but taste the panic in the narrator’s voice. Writing is a tactile art, and this podcast gave me *soooo* many more surfaces to run my ears and mind along and over. It was glorious.

    However, there was one thing I wanted to say. Listening to feedback is nice – and yes, this is the time where you increment the mighty Recursion Level Meter of SCIENCE! (Kitty, sound effect please!)

    The thing that I really treasure, both as an audience member and as a growing, changing, evolving, CAMRA member is that, not only am I getting a good idea of what my fellow co-revolutionaries are thinking and saying, but I’m also getting *VERY* deep into the author’s mind, his/her intent, mindset, and even the origins of the story.

    I wanted to close this by expounding on one thing you mentioned in an early Dealing In episode. You said that literature and art today doesn’t really cover, describe, or give a way for people to experience by-proxy what happens when people ‘earn their salvation’ and grow into an adult, or even a Nietzschian ubermensch. Having walked down many dark paths myself, I see your intent very clearly. This also goes back to what I said earlier with not just getting deeper into the story, but getting deeper into the author’s (deeply texan/fucked up) mind. I’m looking into what you, Phillipa, and (not Lester, but) Chris are projecting and explaining, and I’m understanding more of myself.

    Thank you for that. And for everything else.
