The Maltese Legacy: Spade, the Bird, and Beyond
Posted by: Ben Segedin

Dashiell Hammett and Sam Spade Born in 1894, Samuel Dashiell Hammett lived until 1961. As a young man he worked as an operative for the Pinkerton National Detective Agency, an experience that provided him with plenty of material for his future work as a writer of detective fiction. He served briefly in the U.S. Army […]

Cory Doctorow and I Narrate “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz”
Posted by: Keir Graff

…along with 299 other people. (Cory Doctorow, thanks for lending your celebrity to this blog post!) As anyone who read “Do-It-Yourself Audiobooks” knows, I’m in love with the sound of my own voice. (The problem is finding other people who love that sound, too.) Give me a microphone and a script, and I’ll narrate anything. Heck, I’ll […]

Let’s Get Romantic
Posted by: Donna Seaman

I have a confession to make. I was among the many who thought romance novels were silly. Formulaic, pure fluff. Damsels in distress. Ladies in long dresses and painful bodices. Men in puffy shirts. Then I became Booklist‘s romance editor. I scrutinized the wonderfully varied array of romance novels that arrived in the mail. I attended a Romance Writers of America […]

Better Living Through Audio
Posted by: Kaite

Last year while Keir was away fighting forest fires in the wilds of Montana, I was battling a faulty compact disc player. You may recall that I won the scuffle with the CD player when I introduced it to my hammer. But I lost the war. I bought an iPod that same day. My fellow […]
