On September 16, StarShipSofa Aural Delights is 100. OK, I work behind the scenes on the sofa, so I'm biased, but I believe it's one of the best fiction podcasts in the Multiverse.

To celebrate the century, Starship Sofa Stories Volume 1. A free PDF will be available to download, along with a POD dead tree version. All proceeds from the book and donations will go to keeping the Sofa's rusty old engine in WD-40.

The table of contents is fairly impressive and a great collection of the best stories the Sofa has run:

Into The Blank Where Life Is HurledKen Scholes
London BoneMichael Moorcock
The Second Coming Of Jasmine FitzgeraldPeter Watts
