Of Detectives, Elves and Neo Fascists

For anyone wanting to listen to the type of Sherlock Homes radio plays I mentioned the other day, you can do so for nothing at this excellent site.

On the subject of freebies (and thanks to Simon for pointing this out) Tor books is giving away pdf versions of twelve of its sf novel catalogue, if you sign up at

http://www.tor.com/

Within a day of entering your details, you get links to the books. The first one is Mistborn by Branden Sanderson (available here and if the cover is anything to go by probably rotten and featuring elves). And the second is Old Man's War by John Scalzi, a novel once described by t'other Simon as "unpleasant right-wing polemic" and 'neo-fascistic drivel', so perhaps best to stick with the Sherlock Holmes.

Ooh, thanks for the Holmes link.

Stuart: "'neo-fascistic drivel', so perhaps best to stick with the Sherlock Holmes."

Especially the Rathbone movies where he goes up against the Nazis, I suppose ;)
