Audio: Lester del Rey’s Badge of Infamy (1957)

SFFaudio steered us to a free unabridged reading of Badge of Infamy (1957), a short novel by Lester del Rey, at Podiobooks.com. Read by Steven H. Wilson and recorded in 2006, here’s a description of del Rey’s novel:

“Daniel Feldman was a doctor once. He made the mistake of saving a friend's life in violation of Medical Lobby rules. Now, he's a pariah, shunned by all, forbidden to touch another patient.

But things are more loose on Mars. There, Doc Feldman is welcomed by the colonists, even as he's hunted by the authorities. But, when he discovers a Martian plague may soon wipe out humanity on two planets, the authorities begin hunting him for a different reason altogether.”

You can also download Wilson’s reading of Badge of Infamy at LibriVox and download the novel as an eBook at ManyBooks.net or Project Gutenberg.
