This entry is part 4 of 5 in the series Podcast Roundup

Welcome to week four of my podcast roundup for fans of science fiction, fantasy and comics.

Podcast Spotlight - Escape Pod

Escape Pod is the Science Fiction Podcast Magazine and that's exactly what it offers with each new issue/episode. Unusually for an online magazine, Escape Pods pays authors for the rights to their stories and also uses professional actors to read the stories. The result is a very polished production and stories from some very well known authors in the science fiction field.

If you're not already subscribing to this podcast you really ought to give it a shot.

Podiobooks Roundup

  • The Sphere Of Time by Steve Simons
    This is a science fiction story that is suitable for children and adults alike. It tells the story of John Latham a scientist and Engineer, who thinks he has found a way to travel through time, space or even another dimension. However, he is not sure unless he can test out his ideas. John is lucky enough to come across a wealthy man who puts up the money to try out John's idea. But the crux of this book is, if he succeeds in getting there, wherever there actually is, what will he find when he gets there? Will he create situations that affect his own existence in the future? Would he be able to get back to his own world, universe or time? Or would John be trapped forever in that place and time that he so desperately wanted to travel to?
  • Black Shadow by Steve Saylor
    In a world where evil walks the earth, where super villains are taken over by demonic beings . They all want one thing, and one thing only. To take over the world. There is only one man who can stop them. One man with the powers and abilities to kick some serious demon ass. In a race against time to stop a portal that opens to Hell itself. One man, one hero, one sonofabitch you don't want to mess with.
