Back in my days as a podcaster, I started a project called Metamediocrity. (At the time, I capitalized the second “M,” as the image to the right shows) It consisted of series of stories following the lives of B-List metahumans in a world where classic superheroes and villains actually existed. I viewed it as something like an audio comic book, with ongoing stories releases as episodic “issues.”
In the end, I gave up on the project for several reasons. Mostly, I felt like B-List superhero stories were being overdone at the time. Serialized audiofiction was also going great guns, with new wannabe author / podcasters cropping up daily. In the end, I just didn’t want to add to the noise with one more “Hey! Listen to my show and love me!” podcast.
Now that I’m writing a little more seriously these days, I thought it was a shame to leave those stories languishing in a lonely file somewhere. I’ll be revising them for print and releasing them here via pdf download as short stories.
Who Knows? I may even add to them.
