Five Free Favourites

Looking for more Sherlock Holmes pastiche? Indeed, so are we! In that vein, look what a set of beautiful gems I found over on RadioArchive.cc

Cult Holmes

Poking around the internet I also turned up one viable “RealAudio” link from 1995 – using this, and some elementary HTML skill, I managed to reconstruct the links to the remainder of the files. I shall, perhaps, write a brief monograph on this process one day. If you’re looking for MP3 versions I suggest you visit RadioArchive.cc and do a search.

Coming to BBC Radio 4: The State of the Art Iain M. Banks

The State of the Art by Iain M. BanksPaul Cornell writes on his blog

“Now, here’s one of those bits of big news that I haven’t been able to talk about yet, but today I can. I’ve been commissioned to adapt Iain M. Banks’ novella The State of the Art, from the collection of the same name, into a play for broadcast on BBC Radio 4 later this year. My producer is the wonderful Nadia Molinari, and we’re looking to keep all the SF goodness of the original. I’m enjoying how serious and thoughtful the brief is. The story is about Banks’ spaceborne utopian civilisation, the Culture, encountering Earth. Some interesting casting of a Ship voice ahead, I should think, and who should be Diziet Sma? I’m anticipating the process hugely.”
