Fancy a new science-fiction audio adventure? Maybe one with a female lead and lots of questions about life and purpose and class ethics along with the exploding spaceships and things?
Let me introduce Verity Weaver, a new sci-fi drama following the tough choices and adventures of the titular Verity Weaver, a space miner given a no-brainer — and yet impossible — decision.
If you were given the chance to escape into the illusion of a perfect life, would you take it? Verity Weaver is a gritty, honest, and immersive science-fiction audio drama about reality, identity, and what we owe to the universe.
Verity is living the life of her dreams. Companion to space pioneer Fable Ashwood, she travels the galaxy in a rickety old spaceship, having adventures and getting into trouble wherever she goes.
That’s until she wakes up. Until the start of the next shift.
In Verity’s real life, there are no spaceships. There are no adventures. There is no Fable Ashwood.
But there is a way out. The question is… will Verity take it, if it means letting go of reality?
Full disclosure, Verity Weaver is played by my talented sister, Alena Van Arendonk. But you already know I never recommend anything I don’t enjoy myself, and it really has been getting enthusiastic early reviews, so go ahead and give it a try. Besides, it’s free!
