Skyboat Media and editor David Steffen are at it again. Introducing OUR LADY OF THE OPEN ROAD AND OTHER STORIES FROM THE LONG LIST ANTHOLOGY, VOLUME 2, another collection of stories from the Hugo Awards nominations list, now available on audiobook!

Need to get caught up? Check out our blog post featuring THE LONG LIST ANTHOLOGY.

 The Hugo Awards are the most prestigious awards for science fiction and fantasy. Each year, the members of the World Science Fiction Convention (Worldcon) meet in a different city. The convention members nominate up to five people in each of 15 categories. Then, a final ballot goes out with the five finalists in each category.

Of course, not every story can make the final ballot. And that’s where David Steffen comes in.

After the huge success of his Kickstarter campaign for THE LONG LIST ANTHOLOGY, David Steffen decided to do another. We’re very glad he did. 371 generous backers have pledged over $7,000 to bring this project to life.

“Great narrators, great stories. The works are set in the not-so-distant future, when cars drive themselves and androids have replaced people in many jobs. All the narrators are equally skilled in presenting the stories from the points of view of the main characters…. The very brevity of the pieces–each is about an hour–adds to their quality, leaving the listener wishing for more.” –Excerpt from AudioFile Magazine Review
