The Bone Poet and God
I had the pleasure to narrate Matt Dovey’s short story “The Bone Poet and God” over at Podcastle. This was originally published in ed. Aidan Doyle, Rachael K. Jones, and E. Catherine Tobler’s Sword and Sonnet.
Over on his website, Matt writes very eloquently about the themes behind the story and our quest to find out who we are supposed to be. This is something which a lot of us struggle with and often, there is no right answer. Having this heavy theme on the shoulders of a bear with badger friends was a stroke of genius and echoes Animals of Farthing Wood, Redwall, with a pinch of Steven Universe and lots of Uncle Iroh.
