Sometimes 20

Back again after a typical period of absence with a new podcast - SOMETIMES 20! 

Now, if you've been listening to me for years, you may recall that I read a story for Pseudopod back in 2010 called Spirit of Nationalism by Richard Marsden. However, I know that I've picked up a lot of new listeners since then, and so, since I've always liked the story and my reading of it, I thought I'd recycle it for Sometimes. I contacted Richard Marsden, and he gave his blessing, so here it is, gracing the audio pages of Sometimes 20!

Richard has another story on Pseudopod called Grave of Ships, and has a number of books and stories available from his website, including an ongoing sci-fi humour saga called The Traveling Tyrant.

Also in the podcast, there's the return of the One Among the Sleepless podcast, news about the Salvation and Other Stories 3 Day Giveaway from Amazon. For 3 days from 00.01 am Thursday 28th Feb to 11.59 Saturday 3rd March, this ebook will be available for free from Amazon stores around the world. All I ask in return is that you leave 5 stars and a few kind words. Many thanks. 

There's also news on the ebook and print releases of Underwood and Flinch, and news about the sequel, Blood and Smoke. And, besides a trip to the fridge and a song from Lene Lovich, you'll also hear about the new German editions of Salvation (Erlösung) and Night Crossing (Nachtfahrt), as translated by Martje Salje. You can get those from my page at Smashwords.

So all in all, it's quite a bumper slice of podcastery, and I hope you enjoy it.

Flu

I've got flu. My wife and I think I may have picked it up in the aircraft coming back from our holiday last month. It's weird, because I never normally get sick. Everyone can be dropping like flies around me, but I usually bounce along like Captain Immunity, virus germs bouncing harmlessly off me, cursing as they go, "Damn you, Captain Immunity!" Well, not so lucky this time, Captain! This time they hit me with a secret weapon and knocked me right on my a*se. I won't bore you with the details, but I've been house bound for about a week, and bed/couch-bound for a fair amount of that. I tried to write, but I couldn't. It's been a real drag. But I seem to have turned a corner now - I'm feeling a bit better, and I'm able to type faster than a word a minute, which is nice. I'll get some work done on UFBS (Underwood and Flinch: Blood and Smoke) today, but not until after I've had some breakfast. I'm hungry. I feel like cooking some eggs!
