Audiofile Magazine's Best Fantasy and Science Fiction for 2014

Considering how few spots there are in the various "best of" lists, I'm always amazed and honored to find my books on them. Audiofile Magazine is "the source" for keeping up on books in audio and I'm thrilled that The Rose and the Thorn made their best of 2014 list.

Here's the full rundown:
  • The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell (Multiple Narrators)
  • The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness (Narrated by Jennifer Ikeda)
  • Dark Eden by Chris Beckett (Multiple Narrators)
  • The Girl with all the Gifts by M.R. Carey (Narration by Finty Williams)
  • Influx by Daneil Suarez (Narration by Jeff Gurner)
  • Iron Man: Extremis by Marie Javins (Full Cast Recording)
  • Loot of the Shanung by L. Ron Hubbard (Full Cast Recording)
  • Raising Steam by Terry Pratchett (Narration by Stephen Briggs)
  • Red Rising by Pierce Brown (Narration by Tim Gerard Reynolds)
  • The Rose and the Thorn by Michael J. Sullivan (Narration by Tim Gerard Reynolds)
  • Salome by Oscar Wilde (Multiple Narrators)
  • Skin Game by Jim Butcher (Narration by James Marsters)
  • Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel (Narration by Kristine Potter)
  • A Sudden Light by Garth Stein (Narration by Seth Numrick)
  • The Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountains by Neil Gaiman (Narration by Neil Gaiman)
  • Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson (Narration by Michael Kramer & Kate Reading)
I'm thrilled that the narrator for Riyria, Tim Gerard Reynolds got not one but two nods on this list. The only narrator to do so.  I'm also pleased to announce that Tim Gerard Reynolds will be on board for two new projects of mine coming up soon.  The first is The multiple book series The First Empire, and the other is Riyria Chronicles #3.  No release dates on these works yet, but I'll be sure to let people know.


  1. I'm new to your writing (just finished Theft of Swords) but pleased that you're on the list with some of my long time favourite authors. I'm really enjoying the Riyria world and look forward to reading the next in the series!!

  2. Nice...thanks Fiona, I'm glad you are enjoying the books.

  3. So impressive that you made this list! Love your work, and I listen to it all on audiobook (because of my long commute). Tim Gerard Reynolds just really brings Royce and Hadrian alive. So glad he's going to continue to narrate your works!

  4. I think that you need to check out this blog article on how to write an admission committee essay. It could be a a helpful start

  5. Thanks for the informative article. This is one of the best resources I have found in quite some time.
