Now through Halloween 2021, Ship Of Theseus: A Novel will be available to listen to in a serialized audiobook format wherever you get your favorite podcasts! A new episode releases every Monday on the Shiny Red Nothing Podcast until the full book becomes available in August.


Shiny Red Nothing is proud to present Ship Of Theseus, a genre-nuking novel that pits a troubled young writer named Wayne Bird against his own demons before rocketing him 150 years into the future to meet Skyrat, the superhero he created when he was a little boy.
