Isaac Asimov: Foundation

Read by Scott Brick While not the first chronologically, Foundation is the first written book in the Foundation series. This is one of @bklynlibrary’s rex; I’m guessing this was suggested because of my mention of Le Guin’s Hainish Cycle. The story begins with the scandal surrounding mathematician and psychohistory scholar and researcher Hari Selden’s prediction […]

Jasper Fforde: The Eyre Affair

Read by Susan Duerden I loved it immediately. This is the 4th recommendation from @bklynlibrary and I’m 100% sure that this was a direct result of my having mentioned that Gaiman’s Anansi Boys was a favorite. Fantasy and sci-fi are effortlessly woven into a special ops story set in 1980s England. As soon as the […]

Naomi Novik: Uprooted

Read by Julia Emelin This is 3 for 3 for my book match from @bklynlibrary. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed each one I’ve listened to so far. Uprooted was so engaging that I sacrificed precious writing time to continue listening to it. Yet another story where language is a focus, this time Polish, it seems. The story […]
