Start a New Series at Audible for $4.95!

SFFaudio News

Wow! A nice sale going on over at Audible.com. They’ve collected the first books of 71 series, and are offering them for a fiver.

Some quick recommendations from me: The Disappeared by Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Hominids by Robert J. Sawyer, Voyagers by Ben Bova, and Red Mars by Kim Stanley Robinson. Jesse will be pleased to see Altered Carbon by Richard K. Morgan and Starship: Mutiny by Mike Resnick on the list.

I’ve been meaning to try out a Patrick O’Brian book, and they’ve got Master and Commander on the list (read by Simon Vance!), which is going in my queue… now.

New Releases – from Audible Frontiers

New Releases

Audible FrontiersSteve Feldberg, the man behind the awesome AUDIBLE FRONTIERS line over on Audible.com has detailed the new AF releases for December. Sez Feldberg:

“I’m especially excited by our multi-voice production on HYPERION, which utilizes five different narrators. If you’re familiar with the book’s structure – akin to Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales – you’ll know that it lends itself to a number of distinct voices.”

I think that’s awesome too. Personally though I’m glad too that Book 4 in the Starship series is on this list!
