Crudrat and A Carriger Quartet

Many of you supported me in a kickstarter a while back to create a full-cast audiobook of Gail Carriger’s excellent YA science fiction novel Crudrat and a quartet of her short stories. We got the usual crew on board–Danny Schade did the music, Tee Morris, Stephen H. Wilson, Philippa Ballantine, Nathan Lowell, Kitty NicIaian, and a host of local actors did the voices, and we wound up with some excellent productions.

These stories are now available for you to listen to, through the AWP Books storefront on Gumroad. They will be coming this fall to Audible, and also on CD to Amazon, but what those storefronts give you in terms of convenience they can cost you in terms of DRM and shipping. So, for those of you who, like me, prefer your entertainment DRM free, here’s the place to get ’em.

About the author

After a childhood in academia, J. Daniel Sawyer declared his independence by dropping out of high school and setting off on a series of adventures in the bowels of the film industry, the venture capital culture of silicon valley, surfing safaris, bohemians, burners, historians, theologians, adventurers, climbers, drug dealers, gangbangers, and inventors before his past finally caught up to him.

Trapped in a world bookended by one wall falling in Berlin and other walls going up around suburbia and along national borders throughout the world, he rediscovered his deep love of history and, with it, and obsession with predicting the future as it grew aggressively out of the past.

To date, this obsession has yielded over thirty books and innumerable short stories, the occasional short film, nearly a dozen podcasts stretching over a decade and a half, and a career creating novels and audiobooks exploring the world through the lens of his own peculiar madness, in the depths of his own private forest in a rural exile, where he uses the quiet to write, walk on the beach, and manage a production company that brings innovative stories to the ears of audiences across the world.
