Stochasti-city by Tobias Buckell; read by Scott Brick
OK, Reg. You’re a bouncer who’s barely eking out a meager existence in the decaying Wilds outside Detroit. So a little job tracking the Eddies on their patrols seems like easy money. Well, think again, Reg. Because a riot’s about to happen… and you’re going to be the cause…
The Red in the Sky is Our Blood by Elizabeth Bear; read by Kandyse McClure
How does the stranger know Cadie’s real name – and why she’s on the run – and what it all has to do with the Ukrainian mob? He’s offering her freedom from possessions and a totally new way of life. But he wants just this one little favor…
Utere Nihil… by John Scalzi; read by Alessandro Juliani
The only thing Benji lacks more than ambition is luck. And his new job has to be the lowest of the low. But something is stirring in the zero-footprint economy of New St. Louis. And Benji’s about to find himself chin deep in the muck!
To Hie from Far Cilenia by Karl Schroeder; read by Stefan Rudnicki
Gennady’s an expert on nukes, so when the Interpol man hires him to track some stolen plutonium, it seems like business as usual. Except for this: all signs lead to – a place that doesn’t exist.

Listen to two METAtropolis authors discussion (John Scalzi and Tobias Buckell) |MP3| disucss the collection…

“The authors converse about writing for audio, how they artfully handle peculiar prose called infodumps, and the fun behind world-building in collaboration. How this team of five incorporated their lives into their novellas for METAtropolis and whether their frightening visions of the future could ever happen are also among the topics covered.”

First ever Mack Reynolds audiobook

SFFaudio Online Audio

Podcast - The Time Traveler ShowThe Time Traveler Show podcast #19 has a never before heard short story by Mack Reynolds. Reynolds is one of my favorite “b-list” writers. He always tells a compelling story from an off-kilter perspective. This is, as far as I’m aware, the first ever audio adaptation of any Mack Reynolds tale. Hopefully it will be the first of many more. Also, be sure to have a listen to The Time Traveler’s exclusive interview with SF writer Tobias Buckell author of Crystal Rain and Raggamuffin, from show #18 MP3.
