The Destruction of Sennacherib

Art, Media by Adam on 2008-09-17 01:38

The Destruction of Sennacherib is a short story on the Variant Frequencies podcast. I found its overall production striking: use of sounds, music (some of which I recognized as Abney Park), and multiple voices combine to produce a fiction podcast episode not quite like anything I’ve heard before. Good stuff.

Sidebar: this story is steampunk to the gills. A year ago I called steampunk “a rising genre.” Aparently I underestimated that by quite a bit, since the New York Times is writing about it now.

    Hi Adam,

    Thank you for listening to Variant Frequencies, and for the kind words about The Destruction of Sennacherib.

    It was a fun story to produce. We are also expecting more from that author.

    Mussorgsky wrote an opera based on that same story. (Or started to write, in any event.)

    I recently read Whitechapel Gods by S.M. Peters… you should check it out if you’re a steampunk fan
