Geoff Ryman reads his “The Film-makers of Mars"

Thanks to StarShipSofa's Aural Delights No. 57, a science fiction audio podcast, I had the pleasure of listening to author Geoff Ryman read his new short story “The Film-makers of Mars” (2008). The podcast is more than two hours, but an introduction to the story starts at about the 13:30 minute mark and Ryman starts reading at about the 17:00 minute mark. The story concludes at about the 47:30 minute mark.

Published on the website of Tor books, “The Film-makers of Mars” was one of my favorite short stories of 2008. If you have ever wondered what the folks at Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc., have locked up in the vault at Tarzana, you’ll enjoy this story!

Cheers to Dave Tackett of the blog QuasarDragon and Tony Smith of the blog SFFaudio for the tip. A wonderful way to start the New Year.
