A few news items today…

First, Robert J. Sawyer will be interviewed this Friday morning, April 15, at 10:30 p.m. (in every time zone) on CBC Radio One’s flagship morning show “Sounds Like Canada” about MINDSCAN. You can get it on the web at: http://www.cbc.ca.

Second, congrats to all the Hugo nominees! You can find a complete list of the nominees at Interaction’s Worldcon website. Of the fiction nominees, a few have audio versions:

Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke (nominated for Best Novel) is available unabridged from Audio Renaissance.

I found The Algebraist by Iain Banks (also a Best Novel nominee) available on audio at Amazon.uk. There’s no mention that I can see about whether it’s abridged or not. If anyone out there has more info, please let me know.

Shed Skin by Robert J. Sawyer (Best Short Story nominee) is available on audio from Deuce Audio.

And lastly, some bad news for SF audiobook fans. The Reader’s Chair, publisher of some very fine audiobooks, especially Lois McMaster Bujold’s Vorkosigan series, has closed it’s doors.
