More new titles from Iambik Audiobooks!

Iambik has recently produced six new audiobooks.  Three of them are in the science fiction/fantasy category, one is a collection of 'dark' genre short stories, one is a classic and one is for young adults.  A little something for everyone. 

I'll start with the young adult book, Mik Murdoch: Boy Superhero written by Michell Plested and narrated by Anthony St. Pierre.  From Mark Leslie Lefebvre: "This delightful romp brought me right back into my own nine year old shoes. I was right there with Mik, thirsting for a way to become a super-hero and protect the people of my small home town."

Next up is Monstrous Affections by David Nickle and narrated by Robert Keiper.   This collection of 13 short stories veers to the dark side.  From Cory Doctorow, author of Little Brother: "David Nickle writes 'em damned weird and damned good and damned dark. He is bourbon-rough, poetic and vivid. Don't miss this one."

The first of the three sci/fi/fantasy books is called
From Mountains of Ice by Lorina Stephens.  This one is recorded by Diana Majlinger.  A story of love, endurance and the meaning of honor. From Sara Messina, reviewer at Mind Fog Reviews:    "Stephens’ tale takes her reader through an exploration of the bonds between love and hate, darkness and hope, and the power of resilience that leaves an impression as lasting as Simare’s “mountains of ice."

The second sci/fi/fantasy release is titled Machine by Jennifer
Pelland.   Narrated by Bev J. Stephens, here's what the B&N Bookclub had to say:  "Science fiction, at its very best, fearlessly challenges readers and compels them to look at the world around them in a different light – and that is exactly what Jennifer Pelland’s brilliant debut novel Machine does in grand style."

Iambik's third new sci/fi/fantasy book is called Stealing Home
by Hayden Trenholm and is Book 3 of The Steele Chronicles.  The ever popular Mark F. Smith recorded this one.  From Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo Award-winning author of WAKE:  "Steel Whispers is an edge-of-your-seat amalgam of police procedural and razor-sharp science fiction. The streets of Calgary never seemed so mean! Fans of Dashiell Hammett and William Gibson both will love this; a great novel from one of Canada's fastest rising SF stars.  Hayden Trenholm doesn't just steal home — he knocks the ball out of the park with this stunning conclusion to one of the best SF/Crime crossover series ever written. Bravo!"

And last, but certainly not least, the recording of  a
classic piece of literature written by Charles Dickens.   "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times..." is a phrase that most people recognize as the opening of Great Expectations.  Narrated here by the wonderful Irish voice of Tadhg Hynes.  This one is a coming-of-age novel set around an orphan boy named Pip.  If you've never experienced this story or would like to 'hear' it again, this is the perfect opportunity.

All 6 of these books are currently for sale via the Iambik site with the full first chapters for each book uploaded for free listening before purchase.  If you decide to purchase, you'll be taken directly to Audible to complete your transaction.
