The Dispatcher by John Scalzi (Author), Zachary Quinto (Narrator)
5.0 stars, 12 reviews – Listening Length: 2 hours and 19 minutes
One day, not long from now, it becomes almost impossible to murder anyone – 999 times out of a thousand, anyone who is intentionally killed comes back. How? We don’t know. But it changes everything: war, crime, daily life. Tony Valdez is a Dispatcher – a licensed, bonded professional whose job is to humanely dispatch those whose circumstances put them in death’s crosshairs, so they can have a second chance to avoid the reaper. But when a fellow Dispatcher and former friend is apparently kidnapped, Tony learns that there are some things that are worse than death and that some people are ready to do almost anything to avenge a supposed wrong. It’s a race against time for Valdez to find his friend before it’s too late…before not even a Dispatcher can save him.
The Dispatcher is free until November 2, 2016.

Will Charlie ever get to say his one line? Can Marilyn be prevented from eating the baby Jesus? Where is Thomas, who promised he would be there?

The New World: Prequel to the Chaos Walking Trilogy by Patrick Ness (Author), Angela Dawe (Narrator)
4.2 stars, 232 reviews – Listening Length: 47 minutes
The New World tells of Viola’s journey to the New World, brilliantly capturing the hope and fear of settlers in search of a new life. Patrick Ness says that he wrote it “as a huge and deeply-felt thank you to readers. I’ve had so many questions about Viola and what her life was like before that I couldn’t resist the opportunity to reveal just a little bit extra. I knew these things – they’re vitally important to her as a character, even if they’re not directly in the novels – so it felt like a secret trip I could take readers on. The challenge was to make it work on its own, too, so anyone could read it. That was really, really good fun, and I hope the final result is an exciting one.”
