Podcast Spotlight: Pseudopod

“I have a story for you, and I promise you it’s true.” Pseudopod was the first horror fiction podcast, running continuously since 2006. They cover the whole spectrum of horror, new to old, gory to non, psychological to grossout, it’s all there. Alasdair Stuart’s thoughtful after-story comments are a huge draw to the podcast as well. Among the feature length episodes are “Flash in the Borderlands” episode that group together three flash horror stories with a related theme. Even if I don’t like the story in a particular week, I’ll listen to the end just so I can hear what he has to say. They publish a lot of really great stuff.

Phoenix Pick has a new pay-what-you-want eBook special ready to go: Tom Paine Maru by L. Neil Smith!

About the book:

“Corporal Whitey O’Thraight may need to choose between his own survival and that of his home planet.

Whitey O’Thraight, the Ship’s Armorer on the first interstellar vessel launched by his home planet Vespucci, finds himself stranded on a strange planet with just one other survivor.

Captured by the local Baron, they are freed by a group of monks who are much more than they initially appear to be. Their new benefactors and friends have something special in mind for the two survivors, but going along with these plans might mean the destruction of Vespucci as they knew it.

Another breath-taking adventure by the author of the award-winning Pallas and The Probability Broach.

Attention, readers!

Phoenix Pick has a new pay-what-you-want eBook special ready to go: Beyond the Doors of Death by Robert Silverberg and Damien Broderick!

About the book:

“Broad, intriguing speculation on human evolution and first contact.” — Publishers Weekly

“Born With the Dead” (the novella) was nominated for every major science fiction award when it was originally published in 1974, winning the Nebula and Locus awards.

The author now revisits the classic story with Australian author Damien Broderick. Broderick uses Robert Silverberg’s original novella as a starting point for a brilliant leap into the far future, widening the scope and tenor of the original story by revisiting some of the subtler implications of the original story.

“It’s one of those pieces so powerful that I doubted anyone could create anything of matching strength in the same vein, but Broderick does a good job.” — Don D’Ammassa (DonDammassa.com)

“What Silverberg left unanswered, Australian critic Broderick (Science Fiction: The 101 Best Novels, 1985–2010) explains .” — Publishers Weekly

Readers may download this book for free or for a nominal price of their choice from July 2 – July 31. So grab it now!

Instructions and download links can be found on Phoenix Pick’s catalogue page.
