Alessandro Juliani narrates Rollback for CBC

Montreal-born actor Alessandro Juliani, who played Mr. Gaeta on the new Battlestar Galactica, will be narrating CBC Radio One's twenty-five part serialization of my Hugo Award-nominated novel Rollback.

The serialization will air in fifteen-minute installments weekdays at 1:30 p.m. Eastern time (10:30 a.m. Pacific Time) on CBC Radio One (and Sirius Satellite Radio channel 137) from Monday, September 7, to Friday, October 9, 2009, as part of CBC's Between the Covers series.

Using Alessandro Juliani was one of my suggestions; I'm delighted CBC agreed!

"While Rollback is, on the surface, a book about reaching out to those across the universe, it is at its heart an investigation of our very humanity, and how relationships are a fundamental key to defining who we are. Sawyer's crisp and accessible writing style allows for this interweaving of the personal and the scientific. The characters feel real, and their emotions and responses genuine. Beyond the SF trappings, Rollback is a story about love and commitment, about humanity at its most basic -- a novel to be savoured by science-fiction and mainstream readers alike." -- The Globe and Mail: Canada's National Newspaper

You know, in New Brunswick, there appears to be no copies of this book that can be ordered via the library, and the library can order all over the province. Also no "Terminal Experiment", "End of an Era", and one of the books of the Quintaglios series (forget which one).

Rather disappointing omission of a fellow Canadian.
