James Patrick Kelly, has just released two more FREE READS! These are science fiction and fantasy short stories read by Kelly himself . As with the previous 10 stories released, these are top shelf downloadable MP3s. Jim also tells us that his FREE READS recordings will be showing up more and more on Fictionwise.com – where they’ll feature new introductions by him (which will certainly offset the fact they aint 100% FREE there). Of course if you listen to a FREE READ, enjoy it and then don’t send Kelly a PayPal donation the guilt will be crushing.

This week’s releases are:

Bierhorst, R. G., Seera, B. L. and Jannifer, R. P. ‘Proof of the Existence of God and an Afterlife.’ Journal of Experimental Psychology. Volume 95, Spring, 2007, pages 32-36.

Quirks And Quarks, CBC Radio’s excellent and long running Saturday afternoon science program is not only a great source of science news – it’s also a great Science Fiction resource! The show’s host, Bob McDonald, has even narrated an SF novel and is obviously a fan of both science and Science Fiction.

Every week, the program presents the people behind the latest discoveries in the physical and natural sciences, from the smallest sub-atomic particle to the largest objects in the sky and everything in between. The program also examines the political, social, environmental and ethical implications of new developments in science and technology. And now Quirks And Quarks has also got into podcasting too! Show segments are available in MP3 format for FREE!
