Check out the impressive list of narrators reading the stories in this new FREE short story collection from Cory Doctorow. The Neil Gaiman read story, The Right Book, takes on the future of books, ebooks and publishing. The Wil Wheaton read story, Scroogled, imagines a future (or perhaps present) in which your Google searches shall be held against you in the airport security screening, free wi-fi and webcams everywhere means you’ve constantly surveilled and Cardinal Richelieu get’s his revenge. This is a very cool project.

I’ve added a HuffDuffer podcast feed for the the entire collection or pick and choose individual stories.

With A Little Help is my first serious experiment in self-publishing. I’ve published many novels, short story collections, books of essays and so on with publishers, and it’s all been very good and satisfying and educational and so on, but it seems like it’s time to try something new. With A Little Help consists of 12 stories, all reprints except for “Epoch” (commissioned by Mark Shuttleworth) This book is also available as a limited edition hardcover, a free ebook (in several formats) and an audiobook. It is licensed Creative Commons BY-NC-SA. Download the book, buy the limited edition hardcover and audiobooks at craphound.com/walh. This cover by Rick Lieder. Three other covers available.

The Parsec Awards – and what should be an award winning promo

SFFaudio News

The Parsec AwardsThe nominations for the Parsec Awards are closing at midnight the 15th of June!

There are two promos for it. One is a short, straightforward, and frankly a snorringly normal promo |MP3|. The other is dynamic, hilarious and informative! I’ve heard this second promo a few times now, on different podcasts and I think it holds up to repeated listening. Have a listen to the tag team of Scott Sigler and J.C. Hutchins telling all about the nomination cutoff date for the Parsec Awards |MP3|.

7th Son Book Three Premieres Saturday

J.C. Hutchins' 7th Son Book 3JC Hutchins is one big tease. The entire month of June podcasters
all over the internet world played their interviews with the man (this podcaster included) to help promote the third book release. I listened to several of them, and it was tons of fun. I loved all the different perspectives all of the different shows came from, based on what their shows are about. I swear, if you want to become a total JC Hutchins expert (or perhaps a stalker), here is a list of just a few of the podcasts he’s had interviews with:

Barely Podcasting (in 4 parts, then will put up the entire interview)
Strangely Literal
Tag in the Seam
Tvindy Time
Love Long and Prosper
The Sci Phi Show
Update: Muse With Me
Update: The Gigcast
Update: Better Late Than Never
Update: Murder at Avedon Hill
Update: Sonic Society
Update: Survival Guide to Writing Fantasy

This was just off the top of my head. If you did an interview and want it listed- let me know and I’d be more than happy to add it!

What’s next on this big tease leading up to the premiere of Book Three? Well, today episode Zero was posted! What is Episode Zero? Why, The Story So Far!

Tomorrow (Thursday) JC is having a Clone Line Q&A chat, and rumor has it that anyone who joins in for the chat will get a very special bonus… Friday is the big launch party in Second Life, then holy MOLY Saturday is the day!

Update: Chapter’s One and Two are out, and trust me, it does not disappoint! JC has also put up the entire audio from the Clone Line Q&A up in his podcast feed. Hours of fanatical 7th Son listening awaits!

If you have not subscribed to the 7th Son Novel yet, all you have to do is paste this feed into your podcatcher:

http://www.jchutchins.net/7thSonPodcast.xml

You can also get Book 1:Descent and Book 2: Deceit separately through Podiobooks.com. It’s also a perfect route to take if you just want straight story, with no extra-podcast frills and chat.
