Link: “First Friday” for August 2011: Among Others and All the Lives He Led

It’s here! I’ve been waiting for this to come out in audio since January. Narrated by none other than Katherine Kellgren, Jo Walton’s novel Among Others (Tor, January 2011) leads off’s “First Friday” for August.

Described as: “Startling, unusual, and yet irresistibly listenable, Among Others is at once the compelling story of a young woman struggling to escape a troubled childhood, a brilliant diary of first encounters with the great novels of modern fantasy and SF, and a spellbinding tale of escape from ancient enchantment. Read beautifully by Katherine Kellgren, Jo Walton’s novel combines magic with elements of autobiography for an unforgettable imaginative romp through a fantastical and often unforgiving world.”

And, thanks to Audible Frontiers, now in audio. A delightful surprise. Not to be outdone, another Audible Frontiers production pairs an all-star narrator with a 2011 novel of import: All the Lives He Led: A Novel by Frederick Pohl narrated by Oliver Wyman.

This new novel (April 2011) brings Wyman back to a first person Pohl narrative, which Wyman delivered perfectly on Gateway. Two huge surprises for me, and very, very welcome ones.
