Lovestory Part Three

Here is Part Three, the last part, of "Lovestory," which was first published in Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine in June, 1998.  Time:  26:51 File Size: 18.5mb

Lovestory Part Two

Wed, 07 Nov 2012 17:40:41 PST


Here's your special Hurricane Sandy edition of the Free Reads Podcast.  As I type this, the storm rages just outside my window.  But a mere Frankenweather event isn't going to keep me from bringing you Part Two of Lovestory, which was first published in Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine.  Time: 24:44 File Size: 17.0

For those batten down the hatches moments that seem to creep into all of our lives, might I recommend some of my other work?  Say the novels and short stories that await you on Audible.com?  Or how about the new anthology DIGITAL RAPTURE,the Singularity Anthology, from Tachyon Press?
