The Last Night in Pripyat – Audio Preview

Hello everybody. What have I been doing lately? Amongst coding and running a writers’ group, I’ve also been delving into some serious research on the Chernobyl disaster. In fact I did so much research that I ended up writing a short story about Chernobyl, and will probably write a novel.

The following, for your ears only, is an excerpt from the short story. Blow me down! The story is actually going to air on local radio and will also be streamed online next week. I’m working hard on getting this story to you, so please enjoy the excerpt, and let me know what you think.

  1. Very cool. I also find the story of Chernobyl fascinating – have you read Grigori Medvedev’s “The Truth About Chernobyl”?

    • Thanks Frank. I’ve read bits of Truth and most of Medvedev’s Chernobyl Notebook. He tells a good story and I love the odd Russian to English translation. However his bias against Anatoly Dyatlov off-putting.
      Have you seen the BBC’s documentary, Zero Hour? That seems to be the best video account of the incident out there.

    The very talented Anneque G. Malchien has been digging into some scary parts of the world’s recent past, and she is being rewarded with some radio time and an online streaming! Congrats Anneque =)
