News – A Serialized Camp Myth novel by Chris Lewis Carter
Cast of Wonders, a young adult audio fiction podcast, invites you to the magical world of Camp Myth, where centaurs, kitsune, dryads, cyclops, mermaids and other mythical youngsters spend their summers adventuring and earning merit badges.
Starting September 25th, Cast of Wonders will debut Phoenix Watching, the first Camp Myth novel by Chris Lewis Carter. This longer story unfolds over fifteen chapters, and will air one chapter a week every Wednesday. This is in addition to the weekly stories and Little Wonders every Sundays.
Even better, Phoenix Watching will be a full cast production, featuring the voice talents of Kate Baker, Adam Black, Tina Connolly, Christiana Ellis, Alethea Kontis, Alasdair Stuart, Ian Stuart, and the Cast of Wonders creative team of Graeme Dunlop, Barry J. Northern and Marguerite Kenner.
The project will have a special page on the Cast of Wonders website where fans can see artwork from Phoenix Watching, and find links to all the episodes after they air as well as links to purchase their own copy of Phoenix Watching or the Camp Myth roleplaying game. There might even be a few surprises that crop up as the story progresses, so be sure to check back for the latest news.
As a young adult fiction podcast, Cast of Wonders broadcasts stories that evoke a sense of wonder and contain a speculative element. The target audience is the 12-17 age range: that means sophisticated, non-condescending stories with wide appeal, and without explicit sex, violence or strong language like Harry Potter or The Hunger Games. The podcast is open to all genres of fiction, from high fantasy and hard science fiction, to horror, the weird, modern urban fantasy, and paranormal romance.
Cast of Wonders celebrated its two year anniversary this July with the debut of their Little Wonders flash fiction and poetry segments. They also received their first Parsec win in the Best Speculative Fiction Story, Small Cast (Short Form) category, with Rick Kennett’s Now Cydonia, originally aired on March 17, 2013 as Episode 71.
You can find Cast of Wonders weekly episodes streaming directly from our website, or subscribe through iTunes.
