A Pair of Trashy Sci-Fi Freebies

I do solemnly swear that neither of the items in this post will be inspirational, uplifting, or intellectually challenging in any way, so help me whatever higher power, or lack there of, you believe in.  Just dumb fun! (It's almost the weekend!).  Next post - whenever.

 Audiobook and E-book
The Sex Life of the Gods (1962) by Michael Knerr. A year ago, I likely wouldn't have linked to this one, but given the mainstream popularity of Fifty Shades of Grey, this once illicit book seems rather quaint in comparison. Which is likely why it now available a free audio book at LibriVox.  It's 3 1/2 hours long and read by several readers.  It is also available as a free e-book at Project Gutenberg.

Another oddity Zontar: The Thing From Venus (1966) has been re-released in a higher quality, slightly restored version at the Internet Archive.
"A misguided scientist enables an alien from Venus named Zontar to come to Earth in order to help solve man's problems. However, Zontar has other ideas, like disabling the power supply of the entire world and taking possession of important officials with mind control devices."

The other film listed in the picture, In the Year 2889, is also available for free download  at the Internet Archive.
