Subterranean Press and John Scalzi have put an audio performance of the short story Judge Sn Goes Golfing up for free on their website as part of the Winter 2010 issue of Subterranean Magazine. This is an abridged version of their recently released chapbook of the same name, which I just read and enjoyed quite a bit. The book collector/coveter in me is a bit peeved that I bought the limited edition chapbook thinking I was getting exclusive content just to see it being given away for free weeks later. Yet I love it when authors and publishers give away audio stories. Still I have the wonderful Gahan Wilson art work, extra words with swearing, and a signature to show for it.
Judge Sn is one of the most memorable characters from The Android's Dream, which seems to be Scalzi's red-headed step child of novels yet it also happens to be my favorite as it loads the snark and is so tightly plotted. Judge Sn Goes Golfing attempts to give you a day in the life of this infamous Judge as he dodges more than just sand traps on the links. It is especially a great read or in this case listen for fans of The Android's Dream. Overall, it is a hugely funny tea biscuit of a story and well worth checking out whether you buy the chapbook or download the audio.
