  1. You’ll not be disappointed in Nathan’s books, Jesse.

    There were quite a few titles which we didn’t make this list due to our criteria. I’m thinking about going through everything and making an “editor’s choice” list where I ignore size of audiene. That’ll help some of the books that came to us late in 2007.


  2. Quarter, Half and Full Share are excellent, although I could’ve done without the erotica.
    Billibub Baddings is super with a lovely atmosphere.
    Shadow Falls was oddly confusing, just the sort of thing I love.

    The Arwen, Badge Of Infamy, Eastern Standard Tribe, The Failed Cities Monologues, How to Disappear Completely and The Immortals I haven’t checked out.

    The rest I gave a try, however they didn’t appeal to me for one reason or another.

  3. Crescent gets my vote for my number one favorite of 2007. It’s a unique and challenging story in a dark and brilliantly realized world. Think Stephen King meets Firefly, toss in some Bladerunner and Alien (Ridley Scoot w00t!) for good measure. Very, very dark and enjoyable. Billi Baddings was great–just a lot of good fun–as was the Failed Cities Monologues (not fun like Baddings). I hope at least these three make it on the “editor’s choice” as mentioned by Evo. And One Among the Sleepless should get an honorary mention :)

    And hats off to Podiobooks.com. The quality of work seems to get better all the time!

  4. Nathan Lowell is an excellent author, narrator, and audio editor. If you like the trilogy above, also check out his podiobook South Coast. How to Disappear Completely is also excellent.

    I’m puzzled as to why Singularity didn’t make the top ten. I think you reviewed it here, and it is certainly a great book.
