  1. Ben Moss-Woodward

    I found Randolph’s series here on Smashwords if you don’t have a Kindle.

    Ann Leckie’s books can also be found on Google Play and Audible

  2. Hey guys, love the new podcast! What’s the music at the start of this podcast? I’ve tried Shazamming it, and every time I try, it comes up with a new match!

    • Original music written by me, little bit of Jarre inspiration, but if I get some time in the next few weeks I’ll write it up as a full piece. Unlikely that you’ll find it anywhere else. If you do, let me know! 😉

      • Oh wow, fair enough. I love it! I’ve love to have a 5 minute version of this, I think it’s fantastic… Good job!

        • Full version complete, you’ll hear it on Episode 5 on Sunday.

          • Just listened to Episode 5 and pleasantly surprised to here my request for the full theme tune! Many thanks Allen! You probably don’t remember me but you signed my Lave Revolution and Tales from the Frontier at the launch party. I was the drunk guy wearing a retro Elite T-shirt with the bored girlfriend. Probably narrows it down to every guy there!

            Cheers man 🙂

          • Oh god, and I’ve just noticed that I spelt “hear” as “here”. For shame…

  3. Grabbed the Spinward book for my Sony reader and read it in about 5 days, Something of the EE Doc Smith about it brought into the 21st century
