Stainless Steel Rat Audio Book Nominated for an Audie Award

1 March, 2011

Harry Harrison received word from his agent on Monday that The Stainless Steel Rat audio book, read by Phil Gigante, and published by Brilliance Audio, has been nominated for an Audie award in the science fiction / fantasy category.

Here is a link to the press release on the Audio Publishers Association website. The awards are to recognise¬†“distinction in audiobooks and spoken word entertainment sponsored by the Audio Publishers Association (APA).” There is also an Audies website.

I have the Brilliance audio book of The Stainless Steel Rat Returns, also performed by Phil Gigante, and he does a great job of bringing¬†the story to life. The audio books are unabridged readings, available on multiple CDs or on a single MP3 CD — well worth checking out.

In Need of a Rat Catcher?

Eeek, I’ve been away from this blog for so long the rats have moved in. At least that’s what one pest control company seem to think! They left a comment here offering their services. I’m not sure they would know what to do with a Stainless Steel Rat, so I haven’t approved their comment.

Anyhoo, apologies for the long silence – I’ve been distracted with other things, and Harry has been hard at work on his autobiography, so we haven’t had much news to post until today…
