AudioFile Magazine's 2016 Best Audiobooks



Wow, Goodreads, Amazon, and now I learned that Age of Myth has hit another major best-of list.  This one comes from Audiofile Magazine and their editor's top 15 fantasy and science fiction picks of 2016.


I'm especially pleased about this pick because it also highlights the amazing work of Tim Gerard Reynolds (the narrator for The Riyria Revelations, The Riyria Chronicles, and The Legends of the First Empire books). Tim received his first Audie Award nomination for Theft of Swords, way back in the day, and several of my titles have earned him Earphone Awards. I'm always thrilled when Tim's career takes another notch up the ladder, and hopefully he'll keep dragging me along with him.

For those who prefer text rather than pictures, here are the books along with some data about their release date, rating, and number of reviews (rating information from Audible.com).

For some reason, I couldn't find Daredevil on Audible.com so I have no rating/review data for it. What I did find were some titles I didn't know about,  and I'm looking forward to digging into them soon. I hope you find something that you'll like to listen to as well.
