John Stuart Mill's book Utilitarianism is one of the most influential and widely-read philosophical defenses of utilitarianism in ethics. The essay first appeared as a series of three articles published in Fraser's Magazine in 1861; the articles were collected and reprinted as a single book in 1863. It went through four editions during Mill's lifetime with minor additions and revisions. Although Mill includes discussions of utilitarian ethical principles in other works such as On Liberty and The Subjection of Women , Utilitarianism contains Mill's only major discussion of the fundamental grounds for utilitarian ethical theory.

Famed fantasy and sci-fi author Mercedes Lackey and newcomer Steve Libbey have joined forces to create a superhero-themed braided novel podcast series called The Secret World Chronicle. Eight books are in the works, with contributions planned from established and up-and-coming writers.````The series depicts an ensemble cast of metahuman characters coping with worldwide attacks by a mysterious, technologically advanced Nazi secret society, and the ensuing chaos. The Secret World is a meeting ground for pulpy adventure and thoughtful science fiction speculation, where ordinary people are elevated above their fellow humans and must grapple with the consequences of their newfound abilities.````Mercedes and Steve chose to present the stories in podcast form to take advantage of the flourishing interest in the medium, and to tie the stories back into the old adventure serials of the early twentieth century. The stories are read by professional actors and recorded with modern fidelity for a comfortable listening experience. The mp3s will be archived on the Secret World website (www.secretworldchronicle.com) for easy download throughout the life of the series.````
