013 Nine Concubines

Behind The Lighthouse by Steve Nossiter

Episode notes

A student of so many different disciplines that he wryly describes himself as

“probably over-qualified for jobs that haven’t been invented yet”, Karl Johnston is a

writer fascinated by how things work.

That fascination extends to people and relationships. This story has some of the

style and overtones of the Arabian Nights and Arthurian legend, and more than a

touch of whimsy, as it delves into the mind of a powerful but lonely man.
