Part 2

Some good free audio fiction. Sorry some have little or no detail, but I included what I could find at the sites, or easily elsewhere.

Illustration for Wells' "The War in the Air"

@Beam Me Up: "We Honor those Who Serve" by Steve Singleman.

@Beware the Hairy Mango: "Halfway House" by Matthew Sanborn Smith.

@Cast of Wonders: "The Name-Day" by Saki, read by Graeme Dunlop.
"Adventures, according to the proverb, are to the adventurous. Quite as often they are to the non-adventurous, to the retiring, to the constitutionally timid."
@Dramapod: "The Man who was Dead!" by Thomas Knight.

@Dramapod: "The Man from the Future" by Edmond Hamilton.

@Journey Into: "The Box" by Christopher Munroe, read by Graeme Dunlop.
"There is a box in the corner of his room; and he will not open it."
@LibriVox: "The War in the Air" by H. G. Wells, read by many readers.
Wells "published twelve books between 1901 and 1911, including this one. while many British citizens were surprised by the advent of World War I, Wells had already written prophetically about such a conflict. War in the Air predicted use of airplanes in modern war."
@PodCastle: "The Gateway of the Monster (Featuring Carnacki)" by William Hope Hodgson, read by Paul S. Jenkins.
"But it was the door slamming that chiefly bothered the old butler. Many and many a time, he told me, had he lain awake and just got shivering with fright, listening; for sometimes the door would be slammed time after time - thud! thud! thud! - so that sleep was impossible."
@StarShipSofa: "Never Blood Enough" by Joe Haldeman, read by Simon Hildebrandt.
first published in Fantasy & Science Fiction, Oct./Nov., 2009

@Author's Site: "The Starter - Episode 36" by Scott Sigler.
"Final season standings, including who wins the Galaxy Bowl and a bit of looking forward to the next season already."
@19 Nocturne Boulevard: "The Dunwich Horror - Part 2 of 4" by H.P. Lovecraft, adapted by Julie Hoverson.
"Our heroes arrive in Dunwich - and find something is on the loose"
