Free fiction: Podcast of Edwin A Abbott's "Flatland"

At Podiobooks. As a serial, via this feed.

There are many text versions of the novel already on web, including this original scan at Internet Archive.

I'd read about half the text version - may be a year back, before I got distracted. Literally, it's about the world from the perspective of 2-dimensional beings. It's also a satire about English society of a few centuries ago.
