Hey all!

Just wanted to let everyone know how things are going to work for this. We have 14 stories for you. Midnightish Sunday (or is it Monday at that point?) I'm going to start shooting them out to you via yousendit. You can go ahead, grab the stories there, download 'em, put them on your .mp3 players, and brag to all your friends how you have stories that they don't. I'll be sending you all one story a day for your listening enjoyment, until they're all gone. Some are short, some shorter, some are slightly longer than short. Whatever the case, I hope you savor them all like the little tricks or treats that they are.

If you believe you're on the list and you don't get a notification when the files go out (and I'll post here when they do go out), then let me know ASAP.

Any questions? Let me know below! Smiley

"A Hobson and an introduction by me!"

Ahem. Just be glad I didn't actually sing that in the first two files I sent out. Hope you all enjoy the story.

Unfortunately, I've found out that at least one person didn't get an email notification about the files. I'm trying to figure out how that happened, but if it happened to anyone else, either shoot me a PM or email me.

I got the email and downloaded it this morning.  Yay!

I haven't had a chance to load it up on my iPod yet--hopefully after work today.

For those of you who may be looking at this thread with envy or sadness at missing out, or if you just want more October stories (filthy junkies), Widget Walls is running his annual 32 Days of Halloween over at needcoffee.com, where your not only get audio stories every day from people like Poe, Lovecraft, Irving, Jacobs, Shakespeare, and even Walls himself, but he has other Halloween goodies as well.  Check it out.

Yeah, sorry about that. About half the people on the list got a .wav. If you want, stePH, I'll shoot you the .mp3. All the other stories are .mp3 files.

(Anyone else who wants Hobson's story as an .mp3, shoot me an email.)

I already threw it into Audacity and coverted it. MediaMonkey wouldn't recognize the .WAV for some reason (it usually has no problem with .WAVs.)

Alrighty, #3 by David Steffen (who I think occasionally frequents this forum) has gone out. Don't slip in the blood.

Yahooo! These are awesome. Great way to start the day. They last just long enough to have a cup of coffee while listening.

I'm looking forward to the rest. Thanks!

Tina Connolly's gives the old game some new rules this time around - and kind of starts a change in tone and pace for the next few. Enjoy!
