Iambik Audiobooks keeps them coming...

Iambik Audiobooks just released three more books for your listening pleasure.  We have a new science fiction title, The Other, by Matthew Hughes and narrated by award-winning author Edward Willett.  The main character, Luff Imbry, was featured in Matthew Hughes' earlier novels.  This from Publisher's Weekly about The Other: "Superlative. A droll narrative voice, dry humor, and an alternative universe that's accessible without excessive exposition."

Our next two releases are both recorded by that lady with the gorgeous voice, Xe Sands.  First up is another addition to our science fiction category.  The Silence of Trees by Valya Dudycz Lupescu is set against a background of Ukrainian culture.  Charles de Lint of the Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction wrote: "Throughout we get bits and pieces of Ukrainian folklore and mythology woven into the narrative, all of it handled in a very believable and evocative manner, lending deeper import to the day-to-day lives of the characters. Lupescu pulls all of this off with great aplomb, making it so natural that by the time the reader gets to the end of the book, those beliefs feel like they're something we've always known. [...] Lupescu did as excellent a job with characterization as she did with all the other elements of her book."

Iambik's third debut in audio is Saving Angelfish by Michele Matheson and falls into the literary fiction genre.   Xe Sands gives voice to Maxella (Max) Gordon, a part-time actress and full-time junkie.  According to the Los Angeles Times: "This is a flawlessly executed study of a life that's fully dissolved."

All three books have the full first chapters available on the Iambik site and are available in mp3 and m4b formats.  These titles are $6.99 each.

There's also an Iambik book giveaway currently being conducted at TNBBC's The Next Best Book Blog.  From now until April 3rd, you can win one of 2 copies of Andrew Kaufman's All My Friends Are Superheroes  narrated by Gordon Mackenzie.  Good luck!
