Audible.com has posted a daily special ($9.95) on Lois McMaster Bujold’s The Vor Game. This was a Hugo award winner (“Best Novel of 1991”), and we reviewed it last year. It was also a 2005 Audie Award Nominee.

Here’s the outline:

Miles Vorkosigan graduates from the Barrayaran Military Academy with high expectations of ship command, but is disappointed with an assignment as meteorologist to Lazkowski Base, an arctic training camp. His tenure in the windy, snow-covered north is cut short when Miles narrowly averts a massacre between the trigger-happy base commander and mutinous recruits. After a brief stay under ‘house arrest’, Miles is re-assigned to investigate a suspicious military build-up near a wormhole nexus. Reviving his undercover persona as mercenary Admiral Miles Naismith, his routine information-gathering duty expands to a rescue mission when the Emperor of Barrayar disappears during a political conference on a nearby space station. Miles must use his considerable negotiating skills to avoid a showdown between competing powers for control of the wormhole, find the Emperor, and watch his back for the arctic base commander seeking bloody vengeance.

The Time Traveler Show #11 Beyond Lies The Wub by Philip K. Dick

Podcast - The Time Traveler ShowThe Time Traveler Show podcast #11 has the best podcast short story of the season as its latest episode! The story itself has absolutely nothing to do with Xmas, except in the sense that it is a gift from the Time Traveler to all the good little boys and girls out there in podcastland. Come to think of it, the Time Traveler and Santa Claus do have a lot in common!

Anyway, TT’s Xmas gift to us is an unabridged reading of Philip K. Dick’s short story, Beyond Lies The Wub. This was Dick’s first ever published tale. Apparently the Time Traveler even went all the way back to 1952 to try to get Dick to read it for us. Unfortunately Phil wanted to know how big the paycheck would be for it. When TT told him it’d be a ‘pro bono’ job, Phil went into a long rambling harangue about how ‘poor’ he was, that all he ever got to eat was ‘horsemeat’ and that if he’d had a time machine, like the Time Traveler did, he’d be using it to make goddamned money. Said Phil:

The Time Traveler Show Podcast - Beyond Lies The Wub by Philip K. Dick“Just think of the possibilities! You could buy cheap color televisions from 1975 and sell them to the people of 1951, you’d make an absolute killing! It’d be a captive market.”

This got Phil up off the couch and over to his typewriter – maybe he was inspired or something. The Time Traveler gave up and zipped forward to 2006 and got an excellent reader named Mac Kelly to narrate it for us instead. Almost as good I say!
