Spider Robinson is Audible‚Äôs latest Sci-fi Guest EditorSpider Robinson is guest editor over on Audible.com right now. That means he’s written an essay (titled “The Missing Audiobooks“) and made a list of Audible audiobooks he recommends.

Here’s a snippet from the essay:

“Where are all the audio short story collections and anthologies?

Audiobook editors solemnly assure me that surveys prove audiobook readers hate short stories, whether in single-author collections or anthos. But if I ask where I can find those surveys they change the subject. So I can’t prove the pollsters bungled the job; I just strongly believe it. But in the case of science fiction, I’m certain: they’re dead wrong. There’s a vast audience for short SF; always has been.”

And here are Spider’s picks:
