REB Audio Books, for a limited time, is giving away its MP3 audio dramatization of Larry Maddock’s “romantic SF puzzler” The Disembodied Man. REB’s director of audio production, Bill Mills, sez this is all a part of an “utterly transparent scheme to entice audio book buyers to check out the other titles” from their catlaogue.

Unique SF Romance and Puzzler! From the creator of time traveling secret agent Hannibal Fortune and his sardonic, shape-changing colleague, Webley, comes one of the rarest stories in science fiction history, in an all new audio dramatization. “The Disembodied Man” was published only once, in the legendary sf pulp zine “Imagination” in the early 1950s. Off-beat and humorous like much of Maddock’s work, it is at once a unique tale of an unconventional romance and an intricate puzzler with two O’Henry-like twists, resulting in a delightfully human and touching short story. Who was the disembodied man? How had he gotten that way? Who was the mysterious woman that seemed to watch over him day and night? And could a woman, could any woman, fall in love with “the man who wasn’t there?”
