Science Fiction Audiobook Recent Arrivals

Audiodrama - Cyber Bob / The Learning CurveCyber Bob and the Silicon Kid / The Learning Curve
By Brian Price & Jerry Stearns; Performed by Great Northern Audio Theatre
1 CD -68 minutes [AUDIO DRAMA]
Publisher: Great Northern Audio
Published: 2007

Cyber Bob:
Cyber Bob is the ultimate old-style computer pro.  There isn’t a system out there that he can’t hack with just a couple of punch cards.  So he’s ideally suited to answer the question the Silicon Kid and Nadia, the most-super-of-all-supermodels, want answered–is the Kid a boy or just another 200 billion dollar android?

The Learning Curve:
Francis is not human.  He’s one of billions of creatures about to be released into the world’s economy. . . for economic reasons, of course.  But how will they survive?  The media has the message.

Audiodrama - Dialogue with Martian TromboneDialogue with Martian Trombone
By Brian Price & Jerry Stearns; Performed by Great Northern Audio Theatre
1 CD -72 minutes [AUDIO DRAMA]
Publisher: Great Northern Audio
Published: 2007

On October 30th, 1938 the War of the Worlds was a rousing success.  But whatever happened to the Ramon Raquello Orchestra whose performance was preempted that same evening?  It’s a long story and it starts and finishes with a lone trombone.

Also contains the dramas: High Moon, Wizard Jack, A Cure for Science

Fantasy Audiobook - Confessor by Terry GoodkindConfessor
By Terry Goodkind; Read by Sam Tsoutsouvas
20 CDs – 24 Hours [UNABRIDGED]
Publisher: Brilliance Audio
Published: 2007
ISBN: 9781423316589 
Descending into darkness, about to be overwhelmed by evil, those people still free are powerless to stop the coming dawn of a savage new world, while Richard faces the guilt of knowing that he must let it happen. Alone, he must bear the weight of a sin he dare not confess to the one person he lovesand has lost.

Join Richard and Kahlan in the concluding novel of one of the most remarkable and memorable journeys ever written. It started with one rule, and will end with the rule of all rules, the rule unwritten, the rule unspoken since the dawn of history.

When next the sun rises, the world will be forever changed.
