As they have no immediate plans to do so they have allowed me to use the audio rights, so I have been recording them myself using my husband's music studio, and putting them on my Patreon, which can be found here: https://www.patreon.com/jainefenn

My Worldcon Schedule

Here’s what I’ll be up to for Worldcon in Dublin, which I’ll be attending between the 15th and 18th of August:
