Reading of Mike Resnick’s 2004 ERB-inspired short story “A Princess of Earth”

The most recent podcast from audio fiction magazine The Dunesteef includes a reading of SF&F author Mike Resnick’s Hugo Award-nominated short story “A Princess of Earth,” which was first published in the December 2004 issue of Asimov’s Science Fiction Magazine. Here’s a synopsis of the story according to Fictionwise:

An aging widower is visited by John Carter, the main character from Edgar Rice Burroughs' A Princess of Mars, who delivers a cryptic message concerning the fate of his beloved wife.

Complete with music and sound effects, the reading of Resnick's “A Princess of Earth” starts at about the 1-minute mark of the podcast and runs through the 33rd minute.
