Cory Doctorow: Flowers From Al

Here’s part one of my 2003 short story “Flowers From Al,” written with Charlie Stross for New Voices in Science Fiction, a Mike Resnick anthology. It’s a pervy, weird story of transhuman romance. http://mostlysignssomeportents.tumblr.com/post/72469771137/heres-part-one-of-my-2003-short-story-flowers

Lemmings, by Richard Matheson, read by Walter O'Hara

This is a very short story by Richard Matheson, a famous television writer and master of the short story form. Written as a parable about nuclear war (in 1953), it was not received well, and in some jurisdictions people actually wanted it banned. I rather like the darkly ironic tone and imagery of this short-short piece. I have always read it very differently from the author's intent, and took the allegory as representing the madness of popular culture. Go figure!

Tales from the Archives — Three: The Astonishing Amulet of Amenartas

Agent Heathcliff Durham finds himself crisscrossing Africa, looking for an Amulet that could spell disaster for any who come near it.

Soon Durham begins to suspect he may never return home—and to top it all off the tea has almost run out. Written and narrated by Nathan Lowell The Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences is a brilliant story concept for a podcast.
