So that really great — and by great I mean I had a total blast — Late Night Library recording I made at the gorgeous downtown Literary Arts space for the Late Night Debut is out and about in the world! Late Night Debut host Amber Keller = amazing. Co-host Daniel H. Wilson = amazing. BLACK MOON, by Kenneth Calhoun = yes, amazing.
About the author and the audiocast from the Late Night Library site:
“There’s a connection between the notion of the soul—or the subconscious, let’s say, in more psychological terms—and our humanity, and those things are articulated to us in the form of dreams.”

Act 2: Co-host authors Daniel H. Wilson and Alex C. Renwick discuss Kenneth’s debut
Act 3: Daniel talks with Kenneth about tapping into one’s dreams, the ability to sleep like a champ, and what happens when we lose both
