Welcome to the first Beneath Ceaseless Skies Reader Poll to choose a story for an upcoming podcast. In this poll, you, the readers of BCS, get to decide which story from our Past Issues you would like to see released as a BCS Audio Fiction podcast.
(As loyal BCS readers already know, about half of the stories in the magazine are also released as podcasts. This poll lets you vote which story out of all the ones that were not podcasted you think should be.)
Eligible stories from Issues #1-#8 that were not podcasted are listed above this post, with links to each story in the magazine. Here are the rules for the poll:
1. You must be a registered member of the BCS Forums to vote. (That’s how we hold you to only one vote. )
2. The poll will close on Wednesday, Feb. 4, at 9:30 PM EST.
3. The winning story must get at least 10 votes.
The podcast of the winning story is tentatively scheduled for release with Issue #11 on Feb. 26.
Please feel free to post replies in this thread championing your favorite story! Also feel free to blog about this poll or otherwise spread the word. Thanks for making your voice heard!
