Xander Davis of Dreamseed, and now Echo Fiction, is a hell of an ambitious guy, a great producer, and now is responsible for yet another great addition to audio theater — the first (as I see it) truly 21st century clearinghouse for audio drama… An online store featuring streams of a diverse group of audio dramatists and the ability to buy.
Wow, is this thing a long time coming.
I first decried the lack of such a thing in an article well over a year ago, now that Lodestone is gone, Audible sound quality is dreadful, and ZBS features only a small selection of the breadth of audio producers out there.
Despite the title of this post, the store launches on September 2nd, and I’ll review the user experience then.
For now, check out an interview with the cast of Soul Rift, a new sci-fi series Xander has been working on for some time, and by the sounds of it, one that is well worth the wait.[audio:http://dload.dreamseed.com/marketing/soulrift/castinterviews01.mp3]
