Tuesday Freebies

Insanely pressed for time today so I likely missed a few good free ones, but there are a few gems today with likely more tomorrow.

@Strange Horizons: "After All" by Carol Emshwiller. Speculative Fiction.
"I was thinking to write a story about somebody who needs to change (the best sort of character to write about), and all of a sudden I knew it was me who had to change. Always had been, and I didn't realize it until that very minute. So I have to be the one to go on a journey, either of discovery or in order to avoid myself."

@PodCastle: Episode #159 featuring "Judgment of Swords and Souls" by Saladin Ahmed, read by Stephanie Morris. Fantasy.
Layla bas Layla’s breath came raggedly and her blue silks were soaked with sweat, but she was pleased with her performance. Ten beheaded in threescore water-drops. She lowered her forked sword.
