    Acclaimed science-fiction authors Orson Scott Card and Ben Bova, along with their shared audiobook producer and occasional narrator Stefan Rudnicki, discuss audiobooks and their works in a joint interview. The authors touch on their thoughts on audiobooks vs. print editions, the effect of technology on literature, religion, science, and many other fascinating topics sure to intrigue both Card and Bova fans, as well as all audiobook enthusiasts.

    Todd says: "Fun"
    "Nice interview, reminiscing"
    Overall

    This was an interesting discussion of Orson Scott Card and Ben Bova's relationship and OSC's books. It isn't a "WoW!" event, but interesting if you're a science fiction fan. I enjoyed it.

    Story

    Like most people left behind on an over-populated Earth, police detective Elijah Baley has little love for either the arrogant Spacers or their robotic companions. But when a prominent Spacer is murdered under mysterious circumstances, Baley is ordered to the Outer Worlds to help track down the killer. Then he learns that he has been assigned a partner: R. Daneel Olivaw. Worse, the R stands for "robot" - and his positronic partner is made in the image and likeness of the murder victim!

    Dionne says: "perfectly executed!"
    "Asimov Lives On"
    Overall

    I read this book many years ago when I was a kid. I loved all of the 'I, Robot' series which Asimov eventually tied into his 'Foundation' books. What an incredible achievement! The Caves of Steel is a good murder mystery, and a good yarn. I enjoyed hearing it again. I would recommend it.

  • The Sweet Potato Queens' Field Guide to Men: Every Man I Love is Either Married, Gay, or Dead

    Story

    The Sweet Potato Queens like men. They like them so much that they have devoted an absolutely inordinate amount of time to the pursuit of men, marriage, and great sex. And then, when that doesn't work out, they've devoted an inordinate amount of time to divorce, getting another man, and having great sex with him instead.

    Kaeli says: "Can't live with 'em, might as well laugh"
    "SPQs Rule!"
    Overall

    I have enjoyed all of Jill Connor Browne's books, this one included. The Field Guide to Men seemed to me to be a little more cynical and a little less kind than Jill's other books but still it is very funny and I wouldn't have missed it for anything. I love listening to her voice reading her books on a long trip. I'll be waiting in line for the next.

    Overall

    Carl Hiaasen has turned my world upside down! His comments and anecdotes are so wild that I'm sure he's well on his way to achieving his Lifetime Ban from Disneyworld! I'd love to hear more and to delve more deeply. Who knew! It is all very interesting, but in the end, I'll still go to Disney World and enjoy every minute.
