Audio, television, etc.

Happy birthday to the wonderful altariel! May you have a fabulous day and year to come.

Here are a few items of interest in the audio world:

* There are direct links to downloads of a number of original Barnes & Noble interviews with speculative fiction authors (including Neil Gaiman, Lois Lowry, and Terry Pratchett, among others) here.

* SFFAudio has posted a five-part reading of H.P. Lovecraft's "The Shadow Out of Time" here.

* A lecture series by Dr. Justin Woodman (University of London) presented in January and February of 2007 at Treadwell's Bookshop is now available online. The series as a whole focuses on H.P. Lovecraft; the four lectures include "HPL: Fabulist, Myth-Maker & Shaman," "Legends of the Necronomicon," "Chariots of the Dark Gods," and "Chaos, Cthulhu, and Contemporary Consciousness." The lecture summaries and MP3 files are available here.

* Speaking of H.P. Lovecraft lectures, I've mentioned this before, but it's worth repeating: S.T. Joshi's SUNY Cortland lecture "Reflections on H.P. Lovecraft" is definitely worth downloading.

And now to television:
