Fragile Things - June is Audiobook Month

Fragile Things is a collection of short stories and poems by Neil Gaiman. I didn't care for every story here, but the ones I liked, I really liked. I did this review for Audiofile Magazine's blog, Audiopolis.

Runny Babbit - June is Audiobook Month

Continuing with the celebration of Audiobook Month, here's a title that's perfect for a Saturday. I love the way sounds are explored in this kid's title that is as much fun for adults as it is for grown-ups. This was released in 2005.

Source for News About Audiobooks

There's a relatively new site on the Web called Scoop.it! Basically, it's a news aggregator and you select the pieces of news you want to post on any topic of your choosing. It looks like a couple of folks have chose audiobooks as their topic.

Audiobook Business News - http://www.audiobookbusinessnews.com

Everything Audiobooks - http://www.scoop.it/t/everything-audiobooks

Both sites have a ton of current info about happenings in the audiobook world. Good sources of information and best yet, someone else does all the work!

Hitchhiker's Guide - Tertiary Phase -- Audio Review

One of my all-time favorite series. What is there not to like about this production? I think this review was done in 2005. Even though that was a while back, this is as good today as it ever was. You really should give yourself a treat and listen to the entire series! I'm posting these to celebrate June is Audiobook Month!

Fahrenheit 451 - Audio Review

To celebrate Audiobook Month, I'll be posting some reviews I've done in the past that are all audio format. This is a review of a classic - Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury. It's read by Christopher Hurt and published by Blackstone Audio.  I originally did this for SF Site and then posted it on again on my site to celebrate Bradbury's bithday - back in 2009. If you're a librarian (I am) this is one of the scariest books you'll ever encounter. There's some great clips in here, so give a listen!

Celebrating Audiobook Month

June is Audiobook Month and that's cause for celebration. I hope to participate by posting links to some of the audiobook reviews I've done in the past that are in audio - and inlcude clips from the audiobooks. These are by far and away my favorite kind of audiobook review, but they take a long time to produce. And that's a scarce commodity these days. But there's till time to enjoy my favorite past tme - listening to audiobooks!

The Waiting is the Hardest Part

The Echo of One Hand Clapping: Notes on Audio Publishing and Production, by Brian Price

I haven’t written in a while.  I’m supposed to have news.  I’ve been waiting for late breaking big news…and I’m still waiting.

We’ve been working on starting up an audiobook production company since last Fall.  More people than ever before are listening to audiobooks.  More print book companies are interested.  More authors are interested in having their books adapted to audio.  Seems like the right time.

There have been cold calls to publishers and then warmer ones.  Then meetings.  Then mild interest.  Then a demo, which is close to real “work” in one’s chosen field.

The author loved what we did.  We got the job.  We got a shot.  We nailed it.  (Read more...)
