Now, everyone reads (or should read) Scalzi's blog, but if you don't then you might not be aware that Audible.com is offering free downloads of the Hugo nominated METAtropolis. That's nine hours of free fiction, professionally written and narrated. Seriously.
METAtroplis, of course, is the audio project featuring original fiction from John Scalzi, Elizabeth Bear, Tobias Buckell, Jay Lake, and Karl Schroeder. And featuring voice talent of Michael Hogan (aka Saul Tigh from BSG), Kandyse McClure (aka Dualla from BSG), Alessandro Juiliani (aka Gaeta from BSG), Scott Brick, and Stefan Rudnicki.
It took a while to download, but I've got it and I can't wait to listen to it.
