David Steffen wrote an article called The Best of Clarkesworld Podcast and mentioned “A Sweet Calling” as one of his favourites. Kate Baker, who narrates the Clarkesworld stories, does amazing work. I’m very pleased with her podcast of my story myself. He says this about my story:
A candy vendor with the ability to use his candies as avatars and who can use his ability to create elementals faces off against a dangerous foe. A very well developed and compelling magic system based around the Chinese Zodiac.
