eBook Description: Unique SF Romance and Puzzler! From the creator of time traveling secret agent Hannibal Fortune and his sardonic, shape-changing colleague, Webley, comes one of the rarest stories in science fiction history, in an all new audio dramatization. "The Disembodied Man" was published only once, in the legendary sf pulp zine "Imagination" in the early 1950s. Off-beat and humorous like much of Maddock's work, it is at once a unique tale of an unconventional romance and an intricate puzzler with two O'Henry-like twists, resulting in a delightfully human and touching short story. Who was the disembodied man? How had he gotten that way? Who was the mysterious woman that seemed to watch over him day and night? And could a woman, could any woman, fall in love with "the man who wasn't there?" Take a walk on the wild side of Larry Maddock's head. Larry Maddock is the author of "The Agent of T.E.R.R.A." series, "The Nymph and the Satyr", "The Mind Monsters", and "Unaccustomed as I Am to Public Dying". This touching and memorable classic has been fully-dramatized, with music and sound effects, by the author's friend of 30 years, producer and actor Bill Mills, and features the vocal talent of actress Roxanne Mills in her most memorable performance for REB yet. As an added bonus, listeners will hear a biographical profile and a rare sound clip of the author from his days as a radio disk jockey for KALF radio in Arizona in the early 1960s. (After you have heard the dramatization, you may wish to read the original story, available at this site in ebook form).
