I’m really excited. Ellen Kushner’s SWORDSPOINT has gone live over at ACX. Ellen Kushner reads, with a supporting cast of voice actors (including Hitchhiker’s Guide’s Simon Jones) Go to this page, listen to the sample, and you’ll want it to keep going…
“A glorious thing, the book we might have had if Noel Coward had written a vehicle for Errol Flynn. It’s wicked and visual and witty, and it pulls you in like the doorman of a Bourbon Street bar.” (Gene Wolfe)
“Swordspoint begins with a single drop of blood on a field of new-fallen snow, an image that burned itself forever into my mind the first time I encountered it. I can close my eyes and see it still. It’s a terrific opening, an unforgettable opening… and the book just gets better from there.” (George R. R. Martin)
So grateful to Neil for posting this when the first “Riverside” book came out on audio in November - and for making it part of Neil Gaiman Presents!
Are you ready for Book #2? THE PRIVILEGE OF THE SWORD is now available for your listening pleasure - featuring performances by me, Barbara Rosenblat, Felicia Day … and a cameo by Neil himself!
Let us know what you think.
