Each issue Asimov’s has someone record their story to spotlight in podcast form. When they asked me to do “Grief, As Faithful As My Hound” that way, I was simultaneously excited and terrified. Excited, because I believe in accessibility and was so glad that more readers would have a chance to experience this story. Terrified, because I was supposed to read this story, myself, without crying?
I did it mostly without crying. You may hear my voice catch in a few places. But I think that’s okay–that’s the nature of this story. Despite its difficult nature (the title is the content warning, basically), I hope you enjoy the audio version of Grief, As Faithful As My Hound.
