Thanks for the stories!  They are downloading as .wav files, but open just fine in iTunes.  I am having to change them from "music" to "podcasts" so I can find them on my iPod to listen to.  I've got the hang of it now. ;D

Are they all downloading as .wav files? I know we kind of slipped up with some of the Hobson stories, but I think everything else should be coming through as .mp3s?

Glad it's working and you're enjoying them :)

For what it's worth, only "The Trouble with Clocks" was a .wav for me (not an issue - I'll convert it when I get a moment), the rest have all been MP3s.

I'm glad I decided to check my email yesterday!

Help! I have tried getting both Anna Schwind and David Steffen's stories, but YouSendIt gives me the following message:

"The person who sent you this file has exceeded their download limit"

Eep!

Late to the party as usual, I find the buffet devestated.  :P

Just a note to let everyone know I've heard about the problem, and will try and get it fixed tonight.

Ah, yes, those are the ones I meant. Didn't bother to check back before plus-one-ing on Maplesugar's post.

Alright, everyone. We should be back in business. I'll shoot out a batch of stories to you all tonight, but in the meantime, you should be able to retrieve the ones you previously could not.

Yay!  You've prevented riots in the streets from lack of tricks or treats! 

Did anyone tell you that you're awesome?   ;D

Alrighty, then. Problems have been fixed, new stories by Amal El-Mohtar and Mur Lafferty have been sent out, and we are officially over the halfway point.

Rocking!

Also - just a little note: When I shot out Greg van Eekhout's and Tim Pratt's stories, I labeled them as #4 and #5. That was silly, because they are really #5 and #6. It should all be there in the .mp3 tags, but wanted to point it out here just in case anyone was wondering what was up.

Enjoy!

Hey, anyone want discussion threads for these stories?
I'd like to hear my options, so I could weigh them, what do you say?
Five pounds?  Six pounds? Seven pounds?

Sure, discussion threads would be nice.  Although they're mostly so short that it's hard to tease out any specifics to get a good argument going.
