Did you hear that boom?
Yep. That’s us again. We women. Destroying the audiobook.
Gabrielle de Cuir, who produced the podcasts for Women Destroy Science Fiction, has now produced the audiobook. With the help and support of her Skyboat Cast and Crew.
The issue has since been made required reading for a college course, was named “Book of Honor” by the Potlatch convention committee, was listed as one of NPR’s Best Books of 2014, and just won the 2015 British Fantasy Award in the Best Anthology category.
So we decided to go bigger, and today we are proudly announcing the audiobook!
Guest-edited by longtime Lightspeed assistant editor Christie Yant, WOMEN DESTROY SCIENCE FICTION! Lightspeed Magazine Special Issue, THE STORIES contains eleven original science fiction short stories, four short-story reprints, a novella reprint, and for the first time ever, an array of flash fiction stories.
