SFFaudio News

METAtropolisThe 2009 Hugo Nominations have been announced. Very interesting is the nomination of the METAtropolis audiobook in the Dramatic Presentation, Long Form category. It’s there competing against four films: The Dark Knight, WALL-E, Hellboy II, and Iron Man. I hope this nomination brings some attention to the growing audiobook industry – is it time for an Audio category? |Here’s the review we did of METAtropolis|

Anathem by Neal Stephenson (Audiobook from Macmillan Audio)
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman |More info in SFFaudio Review|

  1. Informative post! So, who do we need to “convince” to give audiobooks their own category? I’d say it’s high time they receive that recognition.

  2. Hi Susan! I think so, too. I’ve been thinking about what the nominees this year would be in an audio category. Definitely The Graveyard Book and METAtropolis.

    As for how we get that moving – I wonder how they could find out if there are enough interested audiobook listeners out there to do the nominating? That would be step one, I think?
