Some very good free audio fiction this morning, including the Jules Verne classic Around the World in 80 Days, now complete. I'm having some minor formatting issues this morning so if things look a bit off, sorry.
Stone Hunger" by N. K. Jemisin, read by Kate Baker.
"Once there was a girl who lived in a beautiful place full of beautiful people who made beautiful things. Then the world broke.
Now the girl is older, and colder, and hungrier. From the shelter of a
dead tree, she watches as a city—a rich one, big, with high strong walls
and well-guarded gates—winches its roof into place against the falling
chill of night. "

"I looked around the table. Most of the people there weren’t paying

gold, or if he’s running some sort of scam,” I said."
