I thought these links might be of interest...

* SFF Audio has David Gill's three-part lecture on Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? from the 2010 Philip K. Dick Festival available here for download.

* io9 has posted a fall guide to science fiction films here.

* Will Hart has posted some wonderful audio files for download at his blog in honor of H.P. Lovecraft's recent birthday. These include, among other treats, his unabridged reading of Lovecraft's The Fungi From Yuggoth and recordings of the Lovecraft panel at the 36th World Science Fiction Convention (with panelists Fritz Leiber, Jr., S.T. Joshi, Dirk W. Mosig, Donald R. Burleson, and J. Vernon Shea).

"On distant Generis stands an especially dark, dense and near impenetrable growth of sallap trees. For many generations it was necessary to travel a long distance around the forest to reach the glorious, deep-water lake on the far side. But then a Sith Lord thought to blaze a trail directly through the trees, in the hope of providing a quicker route to the lake. As you might imagine, only a few have taken both routes and lived to tell of their experiences. But all agree that while the path through that dark wood is shorter, it actually fails to arrive at the lake. Whereas the path that skirts the forest, though long and arduous, not only arrives at the shore, but is, in itself, a destination."
