I told myself today is the day I have to get back to blogging so here I am. Don’t you love when you got a lot of open projects and you’re being pulled in a million directions? Actually it’s not that bad. I’m not whining, honest. But I tend to let the blogging go by the wayside and concentrate on other stuff. But no more. At least I hope. Since I haven’t done an update in awhile I’ve got a lot of newsy things and share with you about what Wonder eBooks have been up to. But that would take one massive blog entry. So instead I’ll tell about what I’m about to work on.
SFFaudio.com does an annual challenge for every day people (yes, like you) to create an audiobook. SFFaudio’s editor, Jesse Willis, asked me if I had any stories that I could send his way.

Defense Mech by Ray Bradbury (from The Lost Bradbury: Forgotten Tales by Ray Bradbury)

See You At The Morgue by Lawrence Blochman
AMAZON KINDLE| FICTIONWISE | IPAD
When a gigolo is shot, to death in the bedroom of a beautiful girl, it raises some perplexing problems for Detective Kenny Kilkenny. Why, for example, would a man steal the license plates off his own car? Why should an innocent young professor come to the murder room … and then conceal a key to the crime? Why was a “phantom secretary” hiding in the closet near the murdered man? Was there really money to be made selling glass eyes for stuffed ducks? Why would a beautiful girl ask her lover to kill her? As if these questions–and a hundred others–weren’t enough to drive Kilkenny crazy–there were three exceedingly strange characters to plague him : a girl named Rux, a man named Vanizol, and the weirdest of all–Mr. Whisk! It was a tough case, but so are they all when the word goes out– PARISIAN PLAYBOY SHOT IN N. Y. BEAUTY’S BOUDOIR … “PHANTOM SECRETARY” SEEKS SUICIDE…MYSTERY REDHEAD FOUND… — The papers shouted “SCANDAL!”–but the sirens shrieked “MURDER!”
Gimlet Eye Gunn by H. Bedford-Jones
How can a 300 year-old ghost know so much, from the past, to the present — even the future? Larsen had no idea, but he had to find out. It would mean knowing whether Gimlet Eye Gunn was for real, or he was the one going crazy. First published in Weird Tales, September 1951.
