Some random thoughts on my listening material

As I walked rapidly to work this morning, I listened to the Mindwebs version of Harlan Ellison’s “Repent Harlequin!” said the Ticktockman. It struck me as kind of ironic.

As I walked home, I listened to the new Escape Pod, Friction. The Ellison story is a classic (no doubt partly because of its really awesome title) but it really had nothing on this story. This one goes on the “Why Science Fiction is Worth Reading” shelf. Or, in this case, listening to. It might be the best Escape Pod I’ve ever heard, and it’s one of the best stories I’ve read in months. I’d love to see this one get some love at award time.

Comic tomorrow.
