With almost no warning comes the latest title to be completed in the Second Annual SFFaudio Challenge…
The federation has collapsed, and now a savage barbarian commands the mighty starship Enterprise. He and his crew have looted a thousand worlds! Can anyone stop the SPACE VIKING?
No, it isn’t the latest mirror universe Star Trek adventure, this is a terrifically titled H. Beam Piper novel called SPACE VIKING, a brand new FREE AUDIOBOOK of unsurpassed quality. It is available for direct download or podcast listening.
We owe this edition to a man who more than anyone else in the audiobook field is becoming the voice of vintage Science Fiction. There are many others expanding the free library of Science Fiction audiobooks, but none so much, and dare I say it, none so well, as MARK DOUGLAS NELSON.
Nelson records in an absolutely silent and echoless environment. His pronunciation is nearly always dead-on. He comes from the ‘straight reading’ school of audiobook narration. Character voices aren’t radically different from the narrative voice – which preserves the neutral interpretive value of the original text. On the other hand, Nelson’s characters voices are tinged with whatever distinguishment the text attributes them (gender, age, accent), which makes it easy to tell who’s talking. Check it out, FREE listening, for everone from old berserkers to young maidens…
