Just me again, saying I've updated the original post with the final group of contributors, which I'll mention here, too:

ETA: And now - here's the final list of contributors: Tim Pratt, Greg van Eekhout, Mur Lafferty, MK Hobson, Tina Connolly, Samantha Henderson, Alasdair Stuart, Amal El-Mohtar, Anna Schwind, Ann Leckie, Erin Cashier, Rachel Swirsky, David Steffen, and D.K. Thompson.

Kudos to you Dave for your awesome idea of a package of awesome becoming awesome!

Hehe, eloquence. I've heard of that before...

Also, to all of you non-noobs.
Please excuse my blatant familiarity (current and future) with you.
I know I'm a noob on the forums, but I've been hearing all about many of you guys on the podcasts for ages, so I feel that I already know you.  ;)
And yes, when I find time I'll drop in to the lounge and introduce myself, so you all can be familiar with me too. (... as soon as I can find the newbie intro thread thread. Presumably it exists...)

I've noticed there's been quite a few new story commenters over the weekend who haven't commented in this thread.  Maybe they've been PMing Dave, as per the instructions in last week's episode, but I'm hoping they're getting in on the extra stories one way or the other!

Hey don't worry about it. Familiarity breeds consent! (What a minute, do I have that right?)

Anyway, welcome.

The old one rusted when we left him out in the rain.  This model has Sirius satellite radio, though, so it's all good.

Many stories have prompted thoughts that nearly compelled me to finally register and post; if nothing but to say "THAT WAS AMAZING!"

But lo, what finally did me in was the tantalizing promise of more stories. Are you happy now? I am.

I <3 Escape Artists.
Will post for more excellent audio fiction

I have been around for a long time, but I think this idea might have pushed me to actually comment on a story for the first time.  Good thinking Dave!

Hi! I commented on Eugene in Escape Pod.  Is that enough?

Me too.... I never feel I actually have anything intelligent to add to the forum (And mostly I don't). But I'd love to have some extra escape pod. (Workday becomes less drab).
