Here’s a question nobody’s been asking (but should have). Where are all the Charles Stross audiobooks?
Seriously, the guy is super talented. There have only been three commercially released Charlie Stross audiobooks (all from Infinivox). The were terrific, but they’re not enough.
If Saturn’s Children and Halting State were available as audiobooks they’d shoot up to the top of my listening stack.
Forget individual testimony for a minute, let’s just look at the awards…
Stross’ novella The Concrete Jungle won the Hugo award for its category in 2005. Accelerando won the 2006 Locus Award for best science fiction novel.Glasshouse won the 2007 Prometheus Award. The novella Missile Gap won the 2007 Locus Award for best novella. His novels Singularity Sky and Iron Sunrise garnered back to back Hugo Award nominations in 2004 and 2005. Am I missing something here? Is Stross not due for some more professionally made audiobooks?
In anticipation of a big flood of Strossian goodness over the next couple of years I’ve just now made a CHARLES STROSS author’s page, where I’ll put up details of all the Strossian audio we know about.
