The first installment of John Scalzi’s new serialized Old Man’s War-universe novel, The Human Division, is out: “The B-Team”, with the remainder of the episodes up for pre-order for $0.99/$0.69. And Audible is doing a “first one’s free” deal if you Like their Facebook page. A couple “missing” things are (1) for ease of use, just let me spend one credit and pre-order all of them? (2) I can’t (yet at least) “gift” future episodes, and (3) I really wish Audible would NOT default to using a full credit on titles which cost this little. It’s just an accidental click waiting to happen. Anyway, happy listening, and tune back in on Friday for Dave’s Listen-a-Long discussion!

Two: Note the price. Cheap! All the episodes are at this point similarly priced. You could get the audio and the text versions of each episode and still be well under the cost of your daily Starbucks hit! Hint! Hint! Hint!
Three: The audiobook version is read by William Dufris, who read Old Man’s War, The Ghost Brigades and The Last Colony. He rocks it.
Four: If you go to that link above, you’ll see there is a special deal available to you on the audio of “The B-Team.” No, I’m not going to tell you what it is, you gotta link through. What, do I have to do everything for you? Suffice to say you may find the special deal intriguing. Especially if you’ve not delved into audiobooks before and are wondering what the hubbub is all about…
