I’m even more delighted to announce that both books are read by none other than Wil Wheaton, the serving United States Secretary for Geek Affairs and a close personal friend.
And I’m even more delighted than that to announce that the job Wil did in reading both books is spectacular. I’m a pretty tough customer when it comes to audiobooks, especially ones made from my own works, and I’m here to tell you that Wil has nailed these to the wall. His narration has the right mix of sarcasm, wry observation and (when necessary) seriousness that tells these stories the way I would tell these stories — that is, if I had a voice for performance as good as Wil’s. Which I don’t. But that’s fine, because you have the actual Wil here for these things. See? Everyone wins.
But you don’t just have to take my word for it that Wil’s done a spectacular job, because embedded below is seven minutes of Wil’s narration of The Android’s Dream — specifically, the first part of Chapter Four, in which our hero Harry Creek does a little bit of computer hacking, has a conversation with an old friend, and has a couple of deep thoughts about his own past. In short, a good bit to give you a taste of how right Wil is as narrator. Enjoy.

Oh, and, The God Engines? Coming out in audio form next week from Brilliance Audio. Don’t worry, I’ll remind you then.
