Back for More, eh?

Some very good freebies today! (I know I say that often, but it's always true.)  From modern fantasy at Black Gate to classic science fiction at LibriVox, there's something for everyone. And if for some unfathomable reason you want a break from these genre's, there are a couple of good entries in the other genres category.  And be sure to check out Best science Fiction stories and Variety SF for reviewed free fiction (with links to the free stories) and the latest SFFAudio podcast which discusses the free, serialized Tarzan of the Apes podcast.

At Black Gate: "The Poison Well" by Judith Berman. Fantasy.
       "Manvayar urged Raven down the bank of the high road and onto the lane, into the green shadows of the forest. He noticed that the country folk had done some cutting and coppicing along the edge of the lane, but further in the wood was an impenetrable tangle. The lord of this place had not even fired the brush for hunting".

At The WiFiles: "Weaver’s Needle" by Nancy Cole Silverman. Speculative Fiction.
     "It happened more than forty years ago, but there’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think about it.  Sometimes the memory’s prompted by some TV news story, ‘bout someone who has gotten themselves lost in the Superstition Mountains outside Phoenix. Story never ends well."

Flash Fiction
Audio Fiction
At Fantastic Worlds of Edgar Rice Burroughs: Episode 04 - The Return of Tarzan Adventure.
      "Tarzan has been waylaid in the Rue Maule by a band of cut-throats in the rooms of a woman under the sway of the evil Nicholas Rokoff. "

At LibriVox: "Naudsonce"  by H. Beam Piper. Science Fiction.
      "Bishop Berkeley's famous question about the sound of a falling tree may have no standing in Science. But there is a highly interesting question about "sound" that Science needs to consider...."

At Toasted Cake: "Super Psych" by J. M. Vogel. Paranormal.
     "The supernatural set could be so sensitive."
