In Rebecca Roanhorse’s award winning story “Welcome To Your Authentic Indian Experience(TM)”, a tour guide leads virtual reality “experiences” for tourists who want to know what it’s like to be Native American. Think Black Mirror meets Westworld.
Originally published in Apex Magazine in August 2017, Roanhorse’s story is now kicking off the third season of the short fiction podcast LeVar Burton Reads, in which host LeVar Burton invites you to take a break from your daily life, and dive into a great story. LeVar’s narration blends with gorgeous soundscapes to bring stories by Neil Gaiman, Haruki Murakami, Octavia Butler, Ray Bradbury and more to life. We’re excited to share an exclusive clip from “Welcome To Your Authentic Indian Experience(TM)” below!
