Comments on "Start remixing Start the Clock"

Cool! Hey Ben, I'm not sure if anyone's done this before, but what do you think about creating audio readings of these? Especially for us slow readers ;-) Of course ideally you could do it, but if not, I wonder what the CC license would have to say about someone else creating an audio version of a story? It seems based on the license you have for Start the Clock that it would be fine as long as the person licensed the file with CC and of course gave you attribution. But I also wonder how you would feel about it.

Oops, I guess I should read your WHOLE post before commenting, eh? Well, I guess the main question though still holds - do you have any thoughts about creating your own audio versions or will you just rely on others to potentially do that?

Yeah, Levi, that's precisely the kind of thing I hope to encourage -- bootleg (noncommercial) audio versions and the like.

I would be interested in recording them myself if I new anything about making decent quality recordings and access to the necessary equipment. I know that, for instance, my buddy and mentor Jim Kelly is posting free audio recordings of his stories -- I listened to "Bernardo's House" and it's great. Somebody donates him recording studio time, I think?

There is actually an audio recording of one story of mine, "Red Leather Tassels", on audible.com -- in "The Best of Fantasy and Science Fiction Magazine, July-August 2003".

Yes, I listened to that on Audible. I need to do some research in this area myself as I'm supposed to help a friend start a podcast. I'll let you know if I find some good PC solutions, which I'm sure are out there. Garageband is the big Mac sound editing tool, but I'm not sure what some equivelent piece is for the PC, although I'm sure there are a bunch of more professional (and pricey!) stuff...

The poem by Mary Anne Mohanraj is super, as is your story.
