Audio Me

The Best of Walter Jon Williams has just been released as an audiobook from Tantor Audio. You can buy it most places where audiobooks are sold, or you can get it here for free.

I’ll send a download code to the first three people to reply to this post. Be sure to make certain that I can email you the reply.

In other audio news, it seems I’ve sold my early historical fiction, the privateer books, to Blackstone Audio. I never thought this would happen, so I feel fairly pleased with how this turned out.

Happy listening!

Am I really the first to reply?

Hi Walter—own the “Best of..” eBook; rarely listen to audiobooks but am interested in yours, to contrast experiences. Do you narrate?

Very much enjoyed “The Bad Twin”, one of the few I hadn’t encountered previously. I wonder if the Marvel “Loki” show’s script writers were inspired by that piece, though the temporal mechanics seem different thus far. Yours seems to riff on the Novikov self-consistency principle?

Minor: the third sentence in the Apple eBook states “any chronometer”, perhaps a bad OCR/transcription of “my”?

I have fond memories of listening to Roger Z. narrate “A night in the lonesome October”, looking forward to yours.

Congratulations on the privateer books!

Derek— no, the audiobook is narrated by a fine professional reader named Joel Richards. It would be interesting to narrate my own stuff, but I haven’t been asked and I live far from anywhere they’d do the taping.

I was unfamiliar with Novikov’s theories, but it seemed to me that some kind of conservation law was necessary for time travel to work at all. Without such a law, the profusion of paradoxes would start to blow up the system.

Thanks, Walter. Message with audiobook link received, looking forward to listening.
