Audiobooks are certainly coming up in the world. (A good thing, too, with all the traveling I do!) My stories appear in four anthologies on Audible.com. They are:
Timeless Time Travel Tales
The Best of Analog Science Fiction & Fact Magazine
and, just the other day, The Year's Top Ten Tales of Science Fiction 4, edited by Allan Kaster. which contains "For I Have Lain Me Down on the Stone of Loneliness and I'll Not Be Back Again," my tale of love and terrorism set a century in the future.
Six of my novels are also available as downloads -- and this is why I haven't mentioned them before; because normally I blog about my fiction when I receive the contributor's copies -- on Audible. They are:
Bones of the Earth
Stations of the Tide
The Iron Dragon's Daughter
The Dragons of Babel
Dancing With Bears.
As for the job the readers have done . . . I honestly can't tell you. It turns out that I cannot listen to other people reading my work because they put the emphasis on other words than those I would. You wouldn't think it would be that big a deal, but it is.
Other people's novels, however, I have no problem with.
You can read about Kaster's audio anthology here.
And as a piece of whimsy . . .
I bought the first volume of the new League of Extraordinary Gentlemen series and am happy to report that it's nowhere near as gnostic as the 1969 version was. It struck me, however, that Alan Moore was at a disadvantage dealing with the year 1997 because for legal reasons he had to stay with immortal characters from out-of-copyright fiction (Orlando, Allan Quatermain) and unnamed or renamed characters we're supposed to decode and who have minor roles (Emma Peel, James Bond).
So I began in my imagination to put together a new team of EG, for an adventure that could be written a century from now. Emma Peel makes an excellent M and I'd keep her. I think that Buffy and Hannibal Lector both deserve a place on the roster.
But who else? Ideas, anyone?
