The Continuing (Superpositional) Adventures Of Schrödinger’s Cat ep.588

Erwin Schrodinger's famous thought experiment in quantum theory proposed that a cat sealed in a dangerous iron box can be considered both dead and alive, until an observer opens the box to check. But "alive" vs. "dead" is only the beginning of the story for this unpredictable feline. This story was originally published in the Winter 2021 issue of Underland Arcana.

His short fiction has appeared in Metaphorosis, Penumbric Speculative Fiction, Underland Arcana, and Mithila Review; Mithila Press also published his novelette “The Great Wall of America” as a standalone book, available on Amazon.

---- About Tall Tale TV ----

Hi there! My name is Chris Herron and I'm an audiobook narrator. In 2015, I suffered from poor Type 1 diabetes control which lead me to become legally blind for almost a year. The doctors didn't give me much hope, predicting an 80% chance that I would never see again. But I refused to give up and changed my lifestyle drastically. Through sheer willpower (and an amazing eye surgeon) I beat the odds and regained my vision.

During that difficult time, I couldn't read or write, which was devastating as they had always been a source of comfort for me since childhood. However, my wife took me to the local library where she read out the titles of audiobooks to me. I selected some of my favorite books, such as the Disc World series, Name of the Wind, Harry Potter, and more, and the audiobooks brought these stories to life in a way I had never experienced before. They helped me through the darkest period of my life and I fell in love with audiobooks.

Once I regained my vision, I decided to pursue a career as an audiobook narrator instead of a writer. That's why I created Tall Tale TV, to support aspiring authors in the writing communities that I had grown to love before my ordeal. My goal was to help them promote their work by providing a promotional audio short story that showcases their writing skills to readers. They say the strongest form of advertising is word of mouth, so I offer a platform for readers to share these videos and help spread the word about these talented writers.

Please consider sharing these stories with your friends and family to support these amazing authors. Thank you!
