Happy to say that Superhero Shrink: Climate Change is now available as a new scifi audiobook! I wrote the story several years ago, and I’m pleased to say it’s still dark, compelling, and interesting. Give it a listen – it’s available for free on Youtube – enjoy!
I spent about 12 hours producing the short story by itself – on top of the work to write and edit it. Every short story I do is part audiobook, part ASMR experience. I want you to feel like you’re in the room with the characters so I include different production values to put you right into the action.
If you’re a visual person, I don’t want you to be bored. That’s why I create unique genart pictures to display the action in progress. All of this is done for free – I’d love to work with a human concept artist in the future when I can afford one.
‘Climate Change’ wrestles with some interesting what-ifs: what if a superhero was the only one who could do his job and he was being worked to death? What if all those ‘superhero fights’ were damaging the planet in ways we couldn’t handle? What if superhero shrinks were full of dysfunctional ‘Dr. Phil’ types that preyed on each others’ insecurities?
When I thought about superhero movies in general, I realized there was a missing piece to all of those stories – do you really get to know them as people? What if they were messed up, needed therapy, overworked and underappreciated, too? I started working on this series a few years ago and this is the second short story in the series. Now it’s available for free on Youtube as an audio short – no tricks or signups – just listen and enjoy.
Happy Listening! 😀
