"Well, I can't make love to a bush!"

If you were paying attention (and we hope you were, because there’ll be a quiz at the end of the month), you’ll remember that not so long ago we announced we’d be bringing out podcasts of Far Off Places, starting with Issue II. Well, sirs and gentleladies, that day has come. We’re all kinds of ecstatic about this - we hope that the weekly podcasts of spoken whimsy will not only be enjoyed by our regular readers but by people who might not choose to pick up a literary magazine.

So whether you miss being read bedtime stories or want to read more but never seem to find the time, then this one’s for you. A weekly snatch of short stories and poetry to listen to while brushing your teeth or making a cup of tea. Nibble on them when you need a break, or gorge on them at a midnight feast. They will make you chortle, gasp and giggle. They might even make you smile.

Whet your appetite with our very first podcast: DJ Mac’s haunting short story At Yesnaby, read by Sian Fiddimore.

“I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.”

(Yes, we know we’re mixing classics.)
