David Barr Kirtley reads at Line Break #15 - click to view - mousewheel to zoom
Greetings, Line Break fans! Continuing our month of wonderful things to read...

...if you were with us back in January, our friend David Barr Kirtley dropped by to read us only the first half of his sci-fi romp "Power Armor: A Love Story," a tale of alternate timelines, unlikely romance, and, of course, power armor. The audience was devastated when, for reasons of time, Dave had to stop halfway through. But don't worry! If you didn't manage track down the link to the story back then, we have it for you right here.

Hello again, Line Break fans! As a reminder, we're on hiatus for the month of May, so we won't be having a show this Saturday at Q.E.D. However, we don't want to leave you high and dry for the month, so we'll be popping up from time to time to tell you about some wonderful things to read.

First up, back in November our friend Sam J. Miller stopped by to read for us from his novel The Art of Starving. Well, we're happy to report that Sam's new novel, Blackfish City, has just come out. Not only is it well worth your time to check out, but Sam appeared on NPR's "Weekend Edition" a couple of weeks ago to talk about it with host Scott Simon!
