About

The AudioBookaneers is a blog primarily covering speculative fiction audiobooks, with reviews, interviews of narrators and authors, and coverage of release schedules and other audiobook news of interest. The AudioBookaneers are:

  • Samuel Montgomery-Blinn — publisher of Bull Spec magazine.
  • Dave Thompson — author, narrator, podcaster; former editor of the PodCastle fantasy short fiction podcast.

New here? Check out Dave’s reviews and interviews; Sam’s monthly listening reports and weekly release week coverage; and the 2011 year-in-review and 2012 year-in-preview. And now that it’s 2013, the 2012 year-in-review. Er, now that it’s 2014, the 2013 year-in-review! Er… now that it’s 2015 the 2014 year-in-review! More? How about Sam’s (quite short) interviews with Saladin Ahmed and Robert J. Sawyer, and (longer!) interviews with author Brandon Sanderson, narrators Robertson Dean and Gayle Hendrix, and fellow audiobook reviewer Bob Reiss (The Guilded Earlobe).

What else? Another popular category is Whispersync Deals, which cross-checks Kindle Daily Deal listings for inexpensive Whispersync for Voice upgrades to the audiobook edition; previous serial features include The Human Division Listen-a-Long and The Shambling Guide to NYC Listen-a-Long, and the annual All Hallow’s Listen. And, look we have to admit we have a problem, Dave and I both enjoy posting huge breaking news on April 1. Usually it’s Wil Wheaton-related.

Note: In 2012 October The AudioBookaneers was re-launched and re-named from “The Audible SF/F Blog”. See: What’s in a Name?

    I’d like to see a report on the most famous science fiction books from that past that haven’t gotten audio editions. For instance, The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K. Le Guin, or any book by Samuel R. Delany, or The Demolished Man by Alfred Bester.
