City of Ash and Red Audiobook

City of Ash and Red

Author: Hye-Young Pyun, Sora Kim-Russell Narrator: Eric G. Dove Release Date: October 2020

Distinguished for his talents as a rat killer, the nameless protagonist of Hye-young Pyun's City of Ash and Red is sent by the extermination company he works for on an extended assignment in C, a country descending into chaos and paranoia, swept by a contagious disease, and flooded with trash. No sooner does he disembark than he is whisked away by quarantine officials and detained overnight. Isolated and forgotten, he realizes that he is stranded with no means of contacting the outside world. Still worse, when he finally manages to reach an old friend, he is told that his ex-wife's body was found in his apartment and that he's the prime suspect. Barely managing to escape arrest, he must struggle to survive in the streets of this foreign city, gripped with fear of contamination, and reestablish contact with his company and friends in order to clear his reputation.But as the man's former life slips further and further from his grasp, he looks back on his time with his wife, and it becomes clear that he may not quite be who he seems. From the bestselling author of The Hole, City of Ash and Red is an apocalyptic account of the destructive impact of fear and paranoia on people's lives as well as a haunting novel about a man's loss of himself and his humanity.

He just wanted his exosuit back. She was out to save her brother. What they got were bloodthirsty aliens. And maybe the end of the world.

They protected what was dear—Jarek with his exosuit and beloved AI companion, Rachel with her brother. They kept things simple… until the raknoth came and took it all away. Now, Jarek and Rachel will stop at nothing to protect what's theirs, even if it means swallowing their pride and working together to survive. Because it turns out the raknoth are only the beginning of the bad news for Mother Earth… What do a smart-mouthed sword-slinger and a surly arcanist have in common? Neither of them signed up for this crap. But together, they might just be strong enough to finish it… Assuming they don't kill each other first. Are you ready to suit up and save the world?

Burn the Ashes Audiobook

Burn the Ashes

We burn them to ashes and then burn the ashes. In Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451, that's the motto of the Firemen who hunted down and burned books wherever they found them. Bradbury warned of a world where our literary history is taken from us. In Burn the Ashes, some of the best science fiction authors working today continue to explore the dystopic worlds they introduced in Ignorance Is Strength. Edited by John Joseph Adams, Hugh Howey, and Christie Yant, the Dystopia Triptych is a series of three anthologies of dystopian fiction. Ignorance Is Strength-before the dystopia-focuses on society during its descent into absurdity and madness. Burn the Ashes-during the dystopia-turns its attention to life during the strangest, most dire times. Or Else the Light-after the dystopia-concludes the saga with each author sharing their own vision of how we as a society might crawl back from the precipice of despair. Burn the Ashes features all-new, never-before-published works by the following authors, in order of appearance: Carrie Vaughn, Tim Pratt, Rich Larson, Cadwell Turnbull, Karin Lowachee, Adam-Troy Castro, Caroline M. Yoachim, Hugh Howey, An Owomoyela, Seanan McGuire, Dominica Phetteplace, Alex Irvine, Tobias S. Buckell, Scott Sigler, Darcie Little Badger, Violet Allen, and Merc Fenn Wolfmoor.

The Belcher – Overserved Underdog: Synopsis Written and narrated by Luke Schmaltz A long-brewing clash between a Mile-High music legend and an aggressive government censor has come to a head, as Pablo Vasquez — aka The Soothsayer — must contend with the diabolical Blatherskite and his minions. To bolster his crusade, Vasquez recruits Earl Danners — a prolific beer drinker with a burgeoning talent for belching forth sonic blasts of guttural decimation. A reluctant hero, Earl must quickly grow into his role of The Belcher as advancing forces of evil threaten to stomp out every iteration of artistic expression and rip apart the very essence of life itself.

Together, they align against Blatherskite, the ranks of the Environmental Agency of Restrictions (EAR), the Army National Guard and a sinister, stench-spewing super villain known as The Gasser.

Road Out of Winter

Author: Alison Stine Narrator: Brittany Pressley Release Date: September 2020

“Blends a rural thriller and speculative realism into what could be called dystopian noir…. Profoundly moving.”—Library Journal, starred review A 2020 The Rumpus Book Club Selection In an endless winter, she carries seeds of hope Wylodine comes from a world of paranoia and poverty—her family grows marijuana illegally, and life has always been a battle. Now she’s been left behind to tend the crop alone. Then spring doesn’t return for the second year in a row, bringing unprecedented, extreme winter. With grow lights stashed in her truck and a pouch of precious seeds, she begins a journey, determined to start over away from Appalachian Ohio. But the icy roads and strangers hidden in the hills are treacherous. After a harrowing encounter with a violent cult, Wil and her small group of exiles become a target for the cult’s volatile leader. Because she has the most valuable skill in the climate chaos: she can make things grow. Urgent and poignant, Road Out of Winter is a glimpse of an all-too-possible near future, with a chosen family forged in the face of dystopian collapse. With the gripping suspense of The Road and the lyricism of Station Eleven, Stine’s vision is of a changing world where an unexpected hero searches for where hope might take root. “Richly imagined, deeply moving and unthinkably offers hope in a world that uncannily resembles ours currently in the thick of COVID-19…. Gloriously well-written.” —Ms. Magazine
