Audible Releases John Scalzi's New Audiobook LOCK IN
by BWW News Desk - Aug 26, 2014

Audible, Inc., the world's largest seller and producer of downloadable audiobooks and other spoken-word content, today announced the simultaneous release of two brilliant performances of New York Times bestselling author John Scalzi's new thriller, Lock In. The story of Chris, an FBI agent and victim of a mass contagion resulting in a fully functioning mind locked in a non-functioning body, is a gender-bending tale in which Scalzi never identifies the character as male or female. To address this ambiguity, Audible Studios produced two entirely different recordings of the book. Listeners can enjoy the narration of Star Trek: The Next Generation and The Big Bang Theory star Wil Wheaton; of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Supernatural star Amber Benson; or both. Download either version of Lock In at www.audible.com/LockIn. (more...)
