More audiobook news, from announcements both Little and Big (ha ha!) to today's new releases.

First, Sarah Prineas (author of The Magic Thief series) announced via Twitter that “a while ago” audio rights for her forthcoming novel Winterling (HarperChildrens, January 3, 2012) were sold to Recorded Books.

Second, from the “how did I not know this was coming” department, John Crowley’s novel Little, Big will be coming out December 1 from Blackstone Audio! Crowley announced the deal in late September, revealing that he will be narrating the novel, which he did for a previous audiobook, Aegypt (also from Blackstone). I’ve heard a great deal of good things about this book over the years, and look forward to finally having it in the format I can find time to “read”.

Third, as part of a print-run “pre-order” Kickstarter campaign, the mp3 audiobook for Natania Barron’s debut novel Pilgrim of the Sky is also available for pre-order as part of most of the reward tiers. I’ve been able to get sneak peeks at the audio in progress, and I’m looking forward to the finished book.

Lastly, today’s releases. The audiobook for The Ascendant Stars: Humanity’s Fire, Book 3 By Michael Cobley Narrated by David Thorpe is out from Audible Frontiers — continuing his gritty space opera series: “Battle-ready factions converge above Darien, all with the same objective. The goal is control over this newly discovered planet and access to the powerful weapons at its heart. Despotic Hegemony forces dominate much of known space and they want this world too, but Darien’s inhabitants will fight for their future.” Also out today is The Reincarnationist By M. J. Rose Narrated by Phil Gigante — a new narration of Rose’s 2007 novel, previously recorded in 2007 by Christian Rummel. And, coming in at over 55 hours, the 2002 Recorded Books production of the 2001 novel The Fiery Cross By Diana Gabaldon Narrated by Davina Porter.
