- Morevi, the first ever podcast novel, is being released again as Morevi Remastered. Must. Listen.
- I talk about the Kindle, from, and what it may mean to us as readers. Click here if you decide you want to buy it. Can't say I really recommend it though. I'll have to see where they go with the design.
- Finally, I have to report the untimely death of the HOWL line. I'll let you know as soon as we have a new voicemail line up & running

Hope you enjoy the episode and have a great holiday!

Grailwolf's Geek Life Tribute to Joe Murphy

Joseph Murphy
1972 - 2007

There will be no regular episode of Grailwolf's Geek Life this week. Instead, I ask you to join me in marking the passing of a wonderful and warm human being. This feed contains a brief intro for the regular listeners of the GGL, a promo for the Joe Murphy Memorial Fund, and then the entire Joe Murphy Tribute produced by Evo Terra, Michael R. Mennenga, Mur Lafferty, and the rest of the Farpoint Media family.  Many thanks to Mur for organizing this amazing tribute, and to Evo Terra for granting me permission to include it in my feed.

Show links:
  1. The Joe Murphy Memorial Fund has been established to defray some of the costs of Joe's care and the expenses incurred by his family. The remainder will be going to Hospice and to research into leiomyosarcoma carcinoma.
  2. For another touching tribute to Joe, check out Jack Mangan's Deadpan Podcast, Episode #53. While you're there, check out the rest of the episodes too. Jack is a great guy and a very funny podcaster. At least, under normal circumstances.
  3. The music for the Memorial Fund promo was provided by the funny and talented George Hrab. It was amazing of him to give his work so freely, and I hope that he gets some song downloads out of it, at the very least.
  4. Check out this page of tributes to Joe. I especially love the image of Joe and Cap.
DISCLAIMER: I promised Evo that I would not alter the tribute in any way, so I left the Farpoint I.D. intact at the beginning and end. Please be aware that I am not affiliated with Farpoint Media and that they are in no way responsible for any of the content which I produced in this feed.

There will be another regular episode of the GGL very soon, so keep checking back.  Meanwhile, I urge you to download this file and get to know Joe.
