Welcome to the Metamor City Podcast!

The Metamor City Podcast was a sci-fi/fantasy audio fiction series that ran from 2007 to 2010, with some additional content in early 2011. It is distributed for free through this website. It features a mixture of short stories and full-length novels, all taking place in one large world with an overarching story arc. Combining the narration of audiobooks with the music and sound effects of a serial radio drama, The Metamor City Podcast provided an immersive audio experience of a world like no other.

In May 2015 author Chris Lester returned with a new podcast, The Raven & the Writing Desk, which features additional stories both inside and outside the Metamor City universe. These stories are presented in single-narrator format, with high-quality audio but minimal music and sound effects. New episodes of The Raven & the Writing Desk are released each week on Saturday or Sunday, both here and at www.chrislester.org.

PREVIEW – “Secrets of the Heinlein Juvenile,” by J. Daniel Sawyer

Hello, fellow writers!

Longtime friend-of-the-show J. Daniel Sawyer has written a new nonfiction book, Secrets of the Heinlein Juvenile. In it he digs into the works of Robert A. Heinlein, the granddaddy of YA science fiction, and reveals the hidden structure that turns these books into evergreen classics. Right now he’s running a Kickstarter to fund the production of the book, and he’s released this audio version of chapter 1 to give you a taste of what awaits within its pages. Check it out, and if this sounds like something you could use in your writing journey, I urge you to support the project.

Keep it on the bright side,

Chris
