An evil master of sleep-magic torments a small village in the land of Gujaareh. Cet, a priest of the Dream-Goddess, must overcome both the narcomancer and his own temptations to survive.

Hot on the heels of my last Free Readin’ post, I’ve got another story from author N.K. Jemisin. This time around it’s an hour-long audio recording of a short story of her called Narcomancy, which was first published in Helix magazine. Worth a listen and a good introduction to her work if you’re interested in her upcoming debut novel The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms (or even if you’re not).

You can listen to the story HERE or find a text version HERE.
