Luke Rounda has a post about the challenges he faced when he turned Pickle Pie into an audiobook.
Blood runs pink in the latest Vernacular Audiocollaboration with postmodern Greek mythologist and science fiction writer George Saoulidis! In an all-too-plausible near future Athens, popularity is queen. Debt slavery is not only legal, it’s been gamified. It even has an official bloodsport: Jugger. Jugger’s playerbase of ruined and exploited female athletes paint the town pink with blood—‘shopped for streaming to all ages. Inside and outside the Arena, perverts, crony capitalists, and cyborg deathknights run the streets. But with the help of a gutsy cyberpink girl and a savvy Veil hacker, the bankrupt smithy who crafts the elite their armor suits is about to rewrite the playbook…
Rollerball meets GLOW in this bloody mess of a sport story.
When a bankrupt armourer ends up owning a second-rate jugger player, he decides to go for it. But will he manage to even turn a profit, when he knows little about the game and its seedy world, when the opponents play dirty on and off the field, and when the game’s popularity grows with every player injury and death?
