METAtroplis Cascadia: signal boost

via Mary Robinette Kowal

"I have been excited for a while about METAtropolis: Cascadia. First, I liked the premise of the anthology. Then the TOC of writers was awesome company. When they announced the all Star Trek cast of narrators I nearly squeed myself.

Now? The website is live and it has interviews with the narrators about their process in reading the stories. In particular, I like what LeVar Burton has to say, “Storytelling is storytelling.”

Check out the site, in particular the interviews with Jonathan Frakes, Kate Mulgrew (my narrator!), Wil Wheaton, LeVar Burton, and Gates McFadden are really interesting.

Can you tell I’m looking forward to release day? November 16, the day before our 9th anniversary. Now if only it were willow or pottery…"


The setting for METAtropolis: Cascadia is introduced in the original METAtropolis, in Jake Lake's story "In the Forests of the Night", narrated by Battlestar Galactica's Michael Hogan ("Saul Tigh").
