  1. Tell us more about audio downloads of Leigh Brackett’s writings. Especially the free stuff. I’ve read just one story by her (The Enchantress of Venus, included in the anthology The Space Opera Renaissance) and was blown away. She’s the mother of Science Fantasy, incorporating all the best of both the science-fictional and fantastic.
