The Destruction of Sennacherib

19th century London. A place and a history much like the one we know, and yet changed. As a separist army stands poised for war, two words will determine just how far its course will deviate. Lethal Configuration. It’s the key to saving an empire . . . or annihilating one.

    The tone of this story reminded me a lot of H.G. Wells’s The Time Machine, with the whole 1800’s time traveler recounting his/her story thing.

    I guess it was pretty entertaining. Not the most original story ever.

    […] The Destruction of Sennacherib is a short story on the Variant Frequencies podcast. I found its overall production striking: use of sounds, music (some of which I recognized as Abney Park), and multiple voices combine to produce a fiction podcast episode not quite like anything I’ve heard before. Good stuff. […]
