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?
