Calculating God nominated for the Audie

Woot!'s unabridged audiobook of my novel Calculating God has just been nominated for an Audie Award. Given by the Audio Publishers Association, the Audies are the top honor in the audiobook industry.

The full list of finalists in the Science Fiction and Fantasy category:
Calculating God, by Robert J. Sawyer, Narrated by Jonathan Davis, Audible, Inc.

Childhood's End, by Arthur C. Clarke, Narrated by Eric Michael Summerer, Audible, Inc.

Ghost Radio, by Leopoldo Gout, Narrated by Pedro Pascal, HarperAudio

You can get Audible's version of Calculating God here.

(Oh, and I'll just mention in passing that the introduction to one of the other nominees -- Childhood's End -- is by none other than yours truly; I also do an introduction to the Calculating God audiobook, too.)

The winner will be announced at the Audies gala on Friday, May 29, 2009, at the New York Historical Society in New York City.

congrats. I really like this book, as I have liked all your works.
May have to get this one in audio to "re-read" it.

Congratulations Rob! I have a soft spot for Calculating God since it was my introduction to your work. I hurt myself laughing while reading it, but you also had me thinking on the subject of science and religion in new ways.

I'm thinking that many of those amusing scenes might be really funny out loud. Were you very happy with Jonathan Davis' narration?

I think Jonathan Davis did a terrific job. He's great at bringing out the humor in the lines I wrote. I'm very pleased.
