Author Nathan Lowell read from two pieces of his work at Balticon 45. Reading one is from his popular science fiction book, Full Share. Reading two is called The Hildalgo and it is a Dr. Mercury story.
I can tell you with utmost confidence that he nailed the character and tone of a Dr. Mercury story, bringing in the humor, violence and delight that I aim for when I write for her. This story from an anthology of Dr. Mercury stories that my husband put together for my birthday last year. I have stories from some of my favorite authors in that book. From Mur Lafferty’s bloody artwork to Christiana Ellis’s death traps, every story holds a delightful terror. Nathans story is no exception.
The great thing about this reading is that you get to hear the reaction of the audience, the laughter and the gasps. Nathan is a master storyteller, and this reading makes that clear. You can listen to the reading on Episode 113 of the Balticon podcast.
