Free Andy Remic Podcasts! + A Special Neal Stephenson Event

Andy Remic, author of such kickass military science fiction novels as Spiral, Quake, Warhead, War Machine, and the upcoming Combat K novel “Biohell”, published by Solaris Books, has decided to delve into the world of podcasting in collaboration with indie rockers, th3 m1ss1ng.

Initially, Andy will be releasing Spiral (2003) and War Machine (2007) as FREE podcasts. Spiral started airing on October 15, 2008 and a new chapter will be released weekly depending on the author’s writing commitments. Once Spiral is completed, War Machine will follow soon after. The podcasts will be linked via the
author’s website on Podio Books and will be read by Andy Remic himself accompanied by the music of th3 m1ss1ng.

More information and promo downloads can be accessed at the
Official Andy Remic Website while updated information will appear regularly on the author’s blog. To find out more about th3 m1ss1ng, please visit their Official Myspace Page. Listen to a sample of the podcasts below:

This sounds like a great idea. I always love when music is combined with sci-fi, so I'm interested in seeing how this turns out. Thanks for pointing this out Robert.
