Synthetic Voices Episode #4 – “The Beasts in the Void” Fiction Reading

This is a special episode containing some golden age science fiction read by yours truly. Personally I love old pulpy fiction stories and there is an absolute TROVE of them over at Project Gutenburg, which collects literature that has fallen into the public domain. I plan to supplement the regular fiction suggestions with these little audio tidbits, read by either me or another Librivox volunteer.

A Small Delay for Synthetic Voices

Just a little update.  The next episode IS coming, but I’m in the middle of some pretty heavy grad school stuff and I need some more time.  There will be no discussion this month of podcasts at WSFA this month either, as our meeting at the Nebula’s is usually a smallish affair.

Listen in whenever I DO manage to get it up (a week at the most, I hope)!

Synthetic Voices Episode #2 – Selections from March 2012

March was kind of a mixed bag for me.  I actually stopped in the middle of a few stories, which I rarely do even once most months.  That said, I still found a number of stories that I’m sure will light up those creative parts of your brain.  Plus there’s alien monkeys and an old-timey rocket story.  Enjoy!
