Michael Moorcock is certainly one of the most influential and revered names in his genre. He is cited as a major inspiration by Neil Gaiman, Alan Moore, and Michael Chabon, among others, and he helped launch the careers of contemporaries such as Philip K. Dick and Harlan Ellison. Now, Moorcock makes his triumphant return with his first independent novel in 9 years. The Whispering Swarm is the first in a trilogy that will follow a young man named Michael as he simultaneously discovers himself and a secret realm hidden deep in the heart of London.
"My initial awareness of The Silent History was its unique premise: starting around present day, children are born without the cognitive functions to understand and use language. So what happens to society when an entire generation loses its words? It sounded like the basis of a great Charlie Kaufman film or Black Mirror episode and I wondered how it would translate to the audio format. The answer: amazingly well. And the reason is that this is a sci-fi story about language, told through the individual testimonials of parents, teachers, and doctors who now face this strange new world. Gabra Zackman and LJ Ganser deliver dazzling performances, expertly voicing this inventive and extraordinary oral history." -- Doug, Audible Editor
