    A human diplomat creates an interstellar incident when he kills an alien diplomat in a most unusual way. To avoid war, Earth's government must find an equally unusual object: A type of sheep ("The Android's Dream"), used in the alien race's coronation ceremony. To find the sheep, the government turns to Harry Creek, ex-cop, war hero and hacker extraordinaire.

    I love this book, it was a great listen. Wil Wheaton did a great job as the narrator. I found myself laughing out load. I haven't enjoyed Sci-Fi like this since Heinlein. I will look for other books by this author.

    There are millions of stories in the city - some magical, some tragic, others terror-filled or triumphant. Jonah Kirk’s story is all of those things as he draws listeners into his life in the city as a young boy, introducing his indomitable grandfather, also a "piano man"; his single mother, a struggling singer; and the heroes, villains, and everyday saints and sinners who make up the fabric of the metropolis in which they live - and who will change the course of Jonah’s life forever. Welcome to The City, a place of evergreen dreams where enchantment and malice entwine.

    This is one of Dean Koontz best books, I lived in it couldn't wait to get back to it when life interrupted my listening. A tremendous feat of imagination, and story telling. I fell in love with all the main characters, and will revisit this book again!

    Whatever happened to Calico Joe? It began quietly enough with a pulled hamstring. The first baseman for the Cubs AAA affiliate in Wichita went down as he rounded third and headed for home. The next day, Jim Hickman, the first baseman for the Cubs, injured his back. The team suddenly needed someone to play first, so they reached down to their AA club in Midland, Texas, and called up a 21-year-old named Joe Castle. He was the hottest player in AA and creating a buzz....

    In the cold months between the World Series and Spring Training I sat down beside my fire place and read Calico Joe. Alas, I wish it could have lasted until spring, but couldn't put it down until I had read through to the last page....Great story I highly recommend it!

    Jane Sagan: Soldier. Killer. Lover. Dreamer. In John Scalzi's best-selling Old Man's War series of science-fiction novels, we see this warrior woman as the other characters see her - silent and strong, from the outside. But now The Sagan Diary shows us Sagan from another point of view: her own, as she prepares to leave military life and join her new husband and adopted daughter on a colony world.

    Story

    I read book one in this series, Old Man's War, and would not recommend reading this book without having read it.

    I've enjoyed everything that I've read by Scalzi, this one less than the others because it was all about a female sharing her feelings, but it was short, and not repetitive, unlike my wife or daughters when they want to share there “inner feelings”, and I gave it 3 stars, but only because I paid more attention.

    P.S. If my wife ever reads this, (rather unlikely), I may have to apply for the “Audible Book Reviewers Protection Program”.

    Montana native Gabriel Du Pre has been hired as a consultant by a group of filmmakers shooting a documentary on the Lewis and Clark expedition. Du Pre is a descendent of a Metis fiddler and voyageur named Cruzatte who accompanied Lewis and Clark on their journey. And Du Pre's daughter, Maria, has been cast in the role of Sacajawea. But trouble is afoot. First a fire damages the film props, and then two bodies are fished out of the river. Someone doesn't want them there.

    I love these books, and am sorry that this is the last one in audio format. Mr. Lane does a great job reading this Gabriel Du Pre mystery. Alas, there is a sequel to Cruzatte and Maria
    But it hasn't been recorded, (is anyone listening, (no pun intended)). I expect I'll to read it.
