Two days ago we had a story by Ursula K. Le Guin, and today we’re thrilled to share work by yet another writer who needs no introduction. At the moment, George R. R. Martin may be best known for the Season 3 Finale of Game of Thrones, but we’re still swooning over this story written way back in 1979, THE WAY OF CROSS AND DRAGON. Set in the future, a priest struggling with his own beliefs must investigate a mysterious sect that worships Judas Iscariot, and the unexpected experience that follows forces him to face his spiritual doubts head-on.
As narrator for this story, Stefan Rudnicki couldn’t be a better choice. The depths of his voice travel easily through the different characters, settings, even planets! It’s a joy to hear a true great read by a true great! But go ahead and see for yourself.
