Retrieval Detachment PodcastThe Retrieval Detachment podcast takes its name from the job it does, analyzing Escape Pod (and other Science Fiction podcasts). This is the first EPod fan podcast that I know of. It’s really nice to know that there are people as dedicated to short fiction as we are. Who needs another Harry Potter podcast anyway right?

The Detachment seeks to discuss the sci-fi and fantasy behind the stories, whether it’s nanotech, cooking up an immortality potion, or employing zombies as a workforce. The hope is to expand on the concepts presented in the story, and maybe presenting an idea or two that might not have been readily apparent.

Episode 001:|MP3|
The first episode, show hosts discuss the concepts behind the Escape Pod story Nano Comes To Clifford Falls by Nancy Kress.

Episode 002:|MP3|
Discuss the concepts behind the Escape Pod stories Paradox And Greenblatt, Attorneys At Law by Kevin J. Anderson, and I Look Forward To Remembering You by Mur Lafferty.

Small World Podcast

The Small World Podcast’s latest interview is with none other than Mur Lafferty. Well into the Halloween spirit, host Bazooka Joe talks with Mur about the horror-podcast magazine Pseudopod, as well as many other haunting topics. (All right they aren’t really all that haunting. I was just sticking to a theme.)

Hey cool! Uncool! It seems that Listen & Live Audiobooks have tried to released a radio dramatization of Paul Levinson’s novellette The Chronology Protection Case for FREE as a promotion for their abridged version of his novel The Conciousness Plague (which we reviewed). SpokenNetwork.com has THE FILE available after you sign in (FREE) and make an account (FREE).

The Chronology Protection CaseThe Chronology Protection Case
Based on the novellette by Paul Levinson; Performed by Mark Shanahan
1 WMA File – 38 Minutes 37 Seconds [RADIO DRAMA]
Publisher: Listen & Live Audio
Published: 2003
ISBN: 1593160399

The Chronology Protection Case radio play, a science fiction murder mystery, features Shanahan in the role of Dr. Phil D’Amato, the forensic detective who appears in Levinson’s acclaimed novels, “The Silk Code,” “The Consciousness Plague” and “The Pixel Eye.” When D’Amato is approached by the distraught wife of a missing scientist whose work is embroiled in secrecy, he is plunged into an adventure with a terrifying and powerful force of nature at the heart of a series of mysterious deaths.

The “radio play” of The Chronology Protection Case was adapted by Mark Shanahan with Paul Levinson, based on the novelette by Paul Levinson which first appeared in the pages of Analog Magazine in September, 1995. The script of the radio adaptation was nominated for a prestigious Edgar Allan Poe Award as “Best Play of 2003” by the Mystery Writers of America. It was initially performed live before a studio audience at the Museum of TV & Radio in September of 2002. It was subsequently recorded at CDM Studios in New York City in 2003, featuring a cast of nine actors, with an original sound design and score.

Unfortunately the damn thing doesn’t work on my Windows XP OS using my Windows Media Player! If you are going to release something for free to generate a positive buzz you’ve got to make sure it actually will work. Stupid WMA format.

Fantasy Audiobook - Airborn by Kenneth OppelAirborn
By Kenneth Oppel; Read by a Full Cast
10 CDs – 10.5 hours – [UNABRIDGED]
Publisher: Full Cast Audio
Published: 2006
ISBN: 1933322543

Here’s the latest arrival from Full Cast Audio, the premier producer of family-friendly audiobooks:

An incredible swashbuckling adventure, set in a world where great airships ply the skies and there are unknown lands and strange creatures still to be discovered. You’ll love the characters, and the story has the drive and verve of a Saturday morning serial.

Reminiscent of Jules Verne and Edgar Rice Burroughs—with a touch of Robert Louis Stevenson—this is adventure writing at its finest. And with its cast of larger-than-life characters, it was just made for our full cast treatment.
