Enjoy Your Sci-fi and Fantasy How and Where You Want
Beginning July 4th, science fiction and fantasy fans will be given a
new place where they can discover authors and stories they’ll be able
to enjoy wherever they go. Flagship, the new e-zine by publisher
Flying Island Press, will soon be releasing these stories in formats
for the Kindle, the iPad and iPhone, and other electronic readers.
Flying Island Press also recognizes the increasing popularity of
podcasts and other forms of audio fiction. So, in addition to the
e-zine, an audio version will be available to listen to on any MP3
player. Stories they release will be available both in text and in
audio, allowing the consumer to choose their preferred version.
Zach Ricks, managing editor for Flagship, had this to say. “I wanted
to hearken back to what some have called the Golden Age of Science
Fiction.” It’s his hope that “FlagShip will be a place for
optimistic, entertaining fiction.”
Each issue will cost $1.99 for the text version or the audio version
or get both for just $2.99.
Issues will be available starting July 4th, 2010 at
Tomorrow’s UFC 116 match-up between Brock Lesnar and Shane Carwin will be one mean, nasty, and epic battle.
I recorded a preview of this fight for Compassion 365: Podcasting for Compassion that I think some of you may want to hear.
Here’s a little preview of what I had to say:
Saturday’s match-up between Brock Lesnar and interim heavyweight champion Shane Carwin at UFC 116 will be, in my opinion, the best fight in the UFC’s history. It’s certainly being hyped that way and Lesnar’s media appeal has been propelling this fight to astronomical levels.
Lesnar’s absence from the octagon for the past year due to a deadly battle with diverticulitis has the media wondering if he can return and still fight like the “Brock Lesnar of old”. He’s out to prove that nobody can take his belt away and I think that’s exactly what fans of MMA are going to see on July 3rd, 2010 in Las Vegas.
