You’ll have seen me posting about Iambik Audio before; a commercial venture with a range of audiobooks, particularly specialising in smaller-press books. It’s their second birthday this month, and they’re giving away a free collection to the winner of a random drawing happening at the end of the month. You can find out more info… Read more »

Anything audio that’s not in another category (inc. stuff I’m listening to)
Having done a few round-number celebratory podcasts myself, I’m absolutely chuffed to bits to find myself included in someone else’s. Tony C. Smith’s StarShipSofa is a great podcast, full of short and longer-form science fiction stories and articles. It’s been running a show a week for just over two years, now – this is the… Read more »
I’ve just found that a poem I recorded a long time ago, by Julia Ward Howe, has been used as part of a history podcast. The segment starts off with a lovely combined voice recording of her Mother’s Day Proclamation, and then continues with my own recording of her inspired Mother Mind. The show was… Read more »
Something new for me here — a non-LibriVox, fully-copyright recording. Nobodies and Somebodies is a short fantasy story recorded for the podcast at Abherrant Dreams. Free of charge, a neat story … and if you prefer reading to listening, it can also be found here.

I confess it’s only a *part* of the chapter, since the piece is a mini-play with four… Read more »
Obviously not so boring I won’t blog about it. But, in common with all my podcasts, there’s more of other people’s voices than my own, so it’s prolly not that bad. And I edited out all the more alarming noises that are consequent on my having a low-level sniffle. Somehow, despite being thrown together on… Read more »

In a kind acknowledgement of that, when demonstrating beta software, Nokia have converted a few LV books to play as minature-size audio… Read more »
Podcast – A LibriVox community show … of which there is one each week, and for which we were a bit short of hosts a fortnight ago, so, I thought, ‘I have a fortnight, why not!’ Dozens of messages to hand-picked readers and 12 days later, and I have a folder on my computer with… Read more »
