3 fantastic (and free to listen) short story audio finds…

Free short stories found on elsewhere, picked by me and presented to you..

Alien World

In my busy hours while performing mundane tasks, I like to put on headphones and listen to large clusters of words spoken, on whatever portable device I have that allows. This is best when these tell of someone else’s world and interesting situation contained within. With the right voice and matching voice, I find myself deeply involved with the good story. Even better, I would like to share some of these findings.

So, enjoy some free audio science fiction, fantasy, horror fiction from various podcasts I follow. Today, I present three, selected by me (Orion T), recently put online on the last few months.

To play each one, simply click on the title of each entry. I suggest you save them into whatever portable device you may have, with a good set of headphones. Links to more on the podcast, writer and speaker, text and extra info follow…
