New Procedures Coming!

The Fantastic Worlds podcast is changing how it handles completed books.

In the past, once a novel has been completed on the podcast, it has remained available at this website for 6 to 9 months before "retirement".

Starting now, that will change. Once a novel has posted its final episode, it will remain available here free of charge for three weeks only.  After that time, it will be available for purchase. Purchase links will be provided here at this website, and also at www.BurroughsGuy.com.

This means, in particular, that the first two Tarzan novels will be available here free of charge for a maximum of three weeks from today.

As in the past, the current novel, whatever it is, will be posted free of charge an episode at a time, and all episodes for that novel will remain available for downloading until the three week limit is reached.

Thank you for your time and your support. Stay fantastic!
