Thomas Dodson reads and discusses “Evidence of Harm”

Thomas Dodson’s “Evidence of Harm” appears in our current issue.  You can hear an excerpt of the story read by the author here: http://traffic.libsyn.com/champsnotchumps/Dodson_Evidence.mp3.

And the author discusses his work with Liz Washburn of the Axiom Center for New and Experimental Media in this audio clip: http://traffic.libsyn.com/champsnotchumps/axiom_dodson.mp3.

If you like what you hear, pick up the Fall 2013 issue and listen to the Champs Not Chumps podcast.  Thomas Dodson also works on the Printer’s Devil Review.

And just for fun, here’s a random picture the author with his face patterned with the cellular structure of the hydrilla, the plant featured prominently in “Evidence of Harm” as a metaphor for trauma and obsession.
