Some very good free fiction today, including highlighted fiction "Forever Sixteen" at Daily Science Fiction and a free Greg Egan story. And even more great audio fiction including new audio by Drabblecast, Escape Pod, StarShipSofa, and Pseudopod. If you haven't heard of all of them, you've been missing out. And a few more goodies.
Today's illustration is from "Elegy for a Young Elk" at StarShipSofa.
Upcoming this weekend, comics, gaming, flash fiction and more. And next week I'm anticipating a ton of free fiction as several eZines are scheduled to be released.
