Author: Emily Chenoweth, Johnny Marciano Narrator: Dan Bittner, Oliver Wyman, Vikas Adam Release Date: October 2019

'Applaud for KLAWDE. Two paws up!'--Dav Pilkey, creator of the Dog Man series. 'Funny, savage, and brilliant, Klawde is the pet I wish I had.'--Max Brallier, New York Times Bestselling author of The Last Kids on Earth. Klawde is not your basic cat. He's an emperor from another planet, exiled to Earth. He's cruel. He's cunning. He's brilliant... and he's also Raj Banerjee's best friend. In book three of this hysterical series, Klawde faces a challenger he never imagined: a dog, who has arrived on Earth to settle the intergalactic score. He's hyper, he's loyal, he's an all-around-good boy, and he's here to bring Klawde to justice. Can our ferocious feline evade the long paw of the law? Raj, on the other hand, is faced with his own out-of-town visitor who, although from Earth, may prove to be even more formidable: his grandmother. When she plans a birthday party Raj doesn't want, will he survive the embarrassment? Heavily illustrated, with a hilarious, biting voice that switches between Raj's and Klawde's perspectives, this is the story of an unlikely friendship that emerges between a boy and the evil cat who arrived on his doorstep.

Author: Jenn Lyons Narrator: Dan Bittner, Lauren Fortgang, Saskia Maarleveld Release Date: October 2019

Prophesy and magic combine in this powerful epic of imperial politics, dragons, gods and demons. You can have everything you want. If you sacrifice everything you believe . . . Kihrin D'Mon is a wanted man after killing the Emperor of Quur - and not in a good way. So he heads for Jorat, to find the fourth person named in prophesy, who will either save or damn the world. He meets Janel Theranon, who claims she already knows him. And she wants Kihrin's help in saving Jorat's capital from a dragon, who can only be slain with his sword's magic. Unwittingly, Kirin also finds himself at the centre of a rebellion. One which puts him in direct opposition to Relos Var, his old enemy. For too long, Janel's battled the wizard alone - even betraying her ideals to bring him down. However, Var owns one of the world's most powerful artefacts: the Name of All Things. It bestows knowledge, which Var uses to gain what he wants most. This is now Kihrin D'Mon - and the world may not survive the consequences. The Name of All Things is book two in Jenn Lyons' thrilling epic fantasy series, A Chorus of Dragons, which began with The Ruin of Kings. 'What an extraordinary book . . . everything epic fantasy should be: rich, cruel, gorgeous, brilliant, enthralling and deeply deeply satisfying. I loved it' Lev Grossman on The Ruin of Kings (book one) 'Lyons proves she is worthy of comparison to other masters of epic fantasy, such as Patrick Rothfuss, Stephen R. Donaldson . . . and Melanie Rawn' Booklist on The Name of All Things (starred review)

FKA USA: A Novel Audiobook

FKA USA: A Novel

Author: Reed King Narrator: Dan Bittner, Peter Ganim Release Date: June 2019

'An epically concocted apocalyptic vision of America in all its faded glory.' - Kirkus '...a visionary head-trip of apocalyptic political satire; a kitchen sink quest story that reads like someone's high school RPG session gone full-on Technicolor bonkers." - NPR.org Reed King's amazingly audacious audiobook is something of a cross between L. Frank Baum's The Wizard of Oz, Douglas Adams's A Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Cormac McCarthy's The Road, and Ernest Cline's Ready Player One. In Reed King's wildly imaginative and possibly prescient debut, the United States has dissolved in the wake of environmental disasters and the catastrophic policies of its final president. It is 2085, and Truckee Wallace, a factory worker in Crunchtown 407 (formerly Little Rock, Arkansas, before the secessions), has no grand ambitions besides maybe, possibly, losing his virginity someday. But when Truckee is thrust unexpectedly into the spotlight he is tapped by the President for a sensitive political mission: to deliver a talking goat across the continent. The fate of the world depends upon it. The problem is-Truckee's not sure it's worth it. Joined on the road by an android who wants to be human and a former convict lobotomized in Texas, Truckee will navigate an environmentally depleted and lawless continent with devastating-and hilarious-parallels to our own, dodging body pickers and Elvis-worshippers and logo girls, body subbers, and VR addicts. Elvis-willing, he may even lose his virginity. FKA USA is the epic audiobook we've all been waiting for about the American end of times, with its unavoidable sense of being on the wrong end of the roller coaster ride. It is a masterwork of ambition, humor, and satire with the power to make us cry, despair, and laugh out loud all at once. It is a tour de force unlike anything else you will listen to this year.

Author: Daniela Petrova Narrator: Carlotta Brentan, Dan Bittner, Lisa Flanagan, Tavia Gilbert Release Date: June 2019

She befriended the one woman she was never supposed to meet. Now she's the key suspect in her disappearance. For fans of The Perfect Mother and The Wife Between Us comes a gripping psychological suspense debut about two strangers, one incredible connection, and the steep price of obsession. Lana Stone has never considered herself a stalker--until the night she impulsively follows a familiar face through the streets of New York's Upper West Side. Her target? The 'anonymous' egg donor she'd selected through an agency, the one who's making motherhood possible for her. Hungry to learn more about her, Lana plans only to watch her from a distance. But when circumstances bring them face-to-face, an unexpected friendship is born. Katya, a student at Columbia, is the yin to Lana's yang, an impulsive free spirit who lives life at the edge. And for pragmatic Lana, she's a breath of fresh air and a welcome distraction from her painful breakup with her baby's father. Then, just as suddenly as Katya entered Lana's life, she disappears--and Lana might have been the last person to see her before she went missing. Determined to find out what became of the woman to whom she owes so much, Lana digs into Katya's past, even as the police grow suspicious of her motives. But she's unprepared for the secrets she unearths, and their power to change everything she thought she knew about those she loves best...

We Are Mayhem: A Black Star Renegades Novel Audiobook

We Are Mayhem: A Black Star Renegades Novel

Author: Michael Moreci Narrator: Dan Bittner Release Date: April 2019

'Narrator Dan Bittner is back...bringing his full array of fantastic character voices...Bittner excels at combining drama and comedy in just the right proportions to make this audiobook a thoroughly enjoyable ride.' - AudioFile Magazine The second entry in the Star Wars-inspired series that Nerdist calls 'the next big thing.' Though the ragtag group of misfits known as the Black Star Renegades won a decisive battle by destroying Ga Halle's War Hammer, the war is far from over. In response to losing the crown jewel of its fleet, the evil Praxis empire has vengefully reinforced its tyranny across the galaxy--but its rule won't be had so easily. Led by hotshot pilot Kira Sen, a growing rebel force stands in the way of Praxis's might. Not only do they possess the will to fight for galactic freedom, they also possess the ultimate ace in the hole: The mythical Rokura, the most powerful weapon ever known. Too bad Cade Sura hasn't figured out to use it. As Kira wages an increasingly bloody war against Praxis, Cade is left with only once choice: With Ga Halle scouring every star system for the coveted weapon, Cade embarks on a dangerous mission into uncharted space to discover the Rokura's origins. Only then can he learn how it can be wielded. Because if he doesn't, all hope for the galaxy might be lost.

Race Me in a Lobster Suit: Absurd Internet Ads and the Real Conversations that Followed Audiobook

Race Me in a Lobster Suit: Absurd Internet Ads and the Real Conversations that Followed

Knit me into a cocoon. Help me eat a burrito. Pretend to be a chair at my dinner party. Wrestle a Komodo dragon. Race me in a lobster suit. Author Kelly Mahon posts absurd gig ads online, and shares the conversations she had with the brave souls who wanted the job. We're living in a gig economy. But would you respond to an online ad seeking someone to search for escaped ants? Or take an offer for a free tattoo by someone who 'needs the practice?' How about a mattress for sale 'tainted by geriatric love' or a workout plan that involves throwing Virginia hams? And if you hit reply, and the poster is sketchy about the details or offers to pay you with a gift card for clams, how long would you keep the conversation going? When New York City copywriter Kelly Mahon started posting weird, fake gig ads as a creative outlet, she found that there was someone interested in every bizarre offer she came up with. And the subsequent awkward email threads were equally hilarious and bizarre. Race Me in a Lobster Suit collects Mahon's funniest fabrications, plus the hysterical email conversations that followed as she ratcheted up the crazy. While some respondents become suspicious, others seem willing to play along with the joke. And don't worry, everyone involved agreed to share their emails in the book, so there are no hard feelings. In a world where it seems like everyone's suspicious of everyone else, it's nice to know that there are still people who will at least consider helping a stranger reenact a recurring spider nightmare or explain the principles of pig Latin to a baffled mother of three.

The Wizard: Book Two of The Wizard Knight Audiobook

The Wizard: Book Two of The Wizard Knight

Author: Gene Wolfe Narrator: Dan Bittner Release Date: September 2018

An epic narrative in two parts, Gene Wolfe's The Wizard Knight duology is in the rare company of those works which move past the surface of fantasy and drink from the wellspring of myth. Magic swords, dragons, giants, quests, love, honor, nobility-all the familiar features of fantasy come to fresh life in this masterful work. The first half of the journey, The Knight, took a teenage boy from America into Mythgarthr, the middle realm of seven fantastic worlds. Above are the gods of Skai; below are the capricious Aelf, and more dangerous things still. Journeying throughout Mythgarthr, Able gains a new brother, an Aelf queen lover, a supernatural hound, and the desire to prove his honor and become the noble knight he always knew he would be. Coming into Jotunland, home of the Frost Giants, Able -- now Sir Able of the High Heart --claims the great sword Eterne from the dragon who has it. In reward, he is ushered into the castle of the Valfather, king of all the Gods of Skai. Thus begins the second part of his quest. The Wizard begins with Able's return to Mythgathr on his steed Cloud, a great mare the color of her name. Able is filled with new knowledge of the ways of the seven-fold world and possessed of great magical secrets. His knighthood now beyond question, Able works to fulfill his vows to his king, his lover, his friends, his gods, and even his enemies. Able must set his world right, restoring the proper order among the denizens of all the seven worlds. The Wizard is a charming, riveting, emotionally charged tale of wonders, written with all the beauty one would expect from a writer whom Damon Knight called 'a national treasure.' If you've never sampled the works of the man Michael Swanwick described as 'the greatest writer in the English language alive today,' the two parts of The Wizard Knight are the perfect place to start.

Sadie Audiobook

Sadie

Author: Courtney Summers Narrator: Dan Bittner, Fred Berman, Gabra Zackman, Rebecca Soler Release Date: September 2018

'A haunting, gut-wrenching, and relentlessly compelling read. Sadie grabs you and won't let you go until you've borne witness.' - Veronica Roth, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Carve the Mark and The Divergent series An innovative audiobook production featuring more than thirty voices, Sadie explores the depth of a sister's love - poised to be the next story listeners won't be able to pause. A missing girl on a journey of revenge and a Serial-like podcast following the clues she's left behind. Sadie hasn't had an easy life. Growing up on her own, she's been raising her sister Mattie in an isolated small town, trying her best to provide a normal life and keep their heads above water. But when Mattie is found dead, Sadie's entire world crumbles. After a somewhat botched police investigation, Sadie is determined to bring her sister's killer to justice and hits the road following a few meager clues to find him. When West McCray-a radio personality working on a segment about small, forgotten towns in America-overhears Sadie's story at a local gas station, he becomes obsessed with finding the missing girl. He starts his own podcast as he tracks Sadie's journey, trying to figure out what happened, hoping to find her before it's too late. Courtney Summers' Sadie is propulsive and harrowing and will keep listeners riveted until the last chapter. More praise for Sadie: 'An electrifying thriller, taut as a bowstring. A coming-of-age tale, both gritty and sensitive. A poignant drama of love and loss. This -- all this -- is Sadie: a novel for readers of any age, and a character as indelible as a scar. Flat-out dazzling.' - A.J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window
