Check it. Over on SFFAudio, the first review of a Pyr book's audio edition! Yup, audio edition. Mike Resnick's Starship Mutiny is out in audio from Audible.com. I've heard about 3 minutes and was very impressed with the quality. We didn't actually have anything to do with this - it was a deal directly between Mike and Audible, but I'm happy to see it happen, and a big believer that a great audio book can inspire someone to go back and buy the "archival quality" hardcover (as I did with Neil Gaiman's Coraline and Stephen King's The Gunslinger both, for example.) Meanwhile, SFFAudio says:
"I can’t say that Resnick’s broken any new ground, but what he does is bring an immediacy and intelligence to the Military SF sub-genre. ...all the gravitas of his intellectual legacy informs the action. It’s as if SF’s own Tolstoy were writing Horatio Hornblower by way of The Odyssey....The whole novel took me less than 36 hours to consume, its highly addictive listening and I confess I was downloading the follow-up book before I’d even finished this one. For a novel so light in ideas, the heart of SF, it’s hard to call it 'unmissable,' but on the other hand it masterfully achieves precisely what it intends to; it’s intelligent and entertaining Military SF - and that is still no small feat. Starship: Mutiny: Highly recommended!"
