We were thrilled to learn that LeVar Burton, actor and reading advocate, is podcasting classic and contemporary short stories. The veteran of Roots, Reading Rainbow, and Star Trek, reads Neil Gaiman, Haruki Murakami, Octavia Butler, Ray Bradbury and more. Billed as “The best short fiction, handpicked by the best voice in podcasting,” and we agree!
And writers of speculative fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, and horror, take note. FIYAH and Tor.com are partnering with the LeVar Burton Reads podcast for their first-ever writing contest. Deadline August 31. Learn more here.
