Free Audio Goodness

If you're looking for some free audio fun, I have some links to share:
For the Gothic, science fiction, or fantasy fan, there are some jewels to be found here, including multiple works by Edgar Allan Poe, Bram Stoker, William Hope Hodgson, Arthur Conan Doyle, G.K. Chesterton, and Jules Verne.
* The Mercury Theatre on the Air
Downloads are available for many of Orson Welles's wonderful 1930s radio dramas, including the classic 1938 War of the Worlds broadcast.
* GPod Audio Books
There are some terrific books available here, from The Odyssey to The Man in the High Tower.

In other news, I've accepted an invitation to join as a contributor to the Liberty and Power Blog with George Mason University's History News Network. The blog is syndicated through LJ as power_liberty.

Man preys on man; and you mourn for the idle tapestry that decorated a gothic pile, and the dronish bell that summoned the fat priest to prayer. You mourn for the empty pageant of a name, when slavery flaps her wing, and the sick heart retires to die in lonely wilds, far from the abodes of men. Did the pangs you felt for insulted nobility, the anguish that rent your heart when the gorgeous robes were torn off the idol human weakness had set up, deserve to be compared with the long-drawn sigh of melancholy reflection, when misery and vice are thus seen to haunt our steps, and swim on the top of every cheering prospect? Why is our fancy to be appalled by terrific perspectives of a hell beyond the grave?
Mary Wollstonecraft, "A Vindication of the Rights of Men"
