After recording Susan Hanniford Crowley reading, I recorded myself reading from my SF novel, Into the Horsebutt Nebula, all of which took place at Confluence, Pittsburgh's SF convention on August 6, 2017.  

About the Novel
Into the Horsebutt Nebula is a comic space opera that follows Captain Sam Baines-the last human from Earth-and his two companions: a small alien that looks surprising like a 4-foot-tall squirrel and a shapeshifter that is stuck as a bottle of Bass ale.
     The adventure involves captures, escapes, mistakes, and laughs. Into the Horsebutt Nebula combines Mad Max ramming the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy during the Night of the Living Dead.
     The Night of the Living Dead? That's right. The captain's spaceship is propelled by the mystical strength of female zombies, and he's in desperate need of new ones.
