A reading of the sci-fi story ‘Entrepreneur’ by Eugen M. Bacon, published by AntipodeanSF

In December 2017 I had the pleasure to have my short story ‘Iron Will’ picked up by AntiSF. At its acceptance their editor asked me if I’d be interested in narrating the piece for their podcast, and following this, if I’d be willing to join their narration team and narrate other writer’s works.

‘Entrepreneur’ is the first of the pieces I have narrated, by author Eugen M. Bacon, and features in the AntiSF Radio Show Aditi (10:23).

‘Entrepreneur’ follows a businessman as he makes his mark on the world through commercial enterprise and innovation, and the social and political impacts his endeavours yield. The story originally appeared at AntiSF and you can find the piece preserved courtesy of the National Library of Australia‘s web preservation program, Pandora.
