Best of Podiobooks, Part 2

Here it is, the long-awaiting follow-up to my wildly popular Best of Podiobooks, Part 1.

Golden Age of the Solar Clipper by Nathan Lowell - Science Fiction
Trader Tales 1: Quarter Share
Trader Tales 2: Half Share

Trader Tales 4: Double Share

Trader Tales 6: Owners Share
Shaman Tales 1: South Coast
I rarely reread (or listen) to books, and I’ve never reread entire series before. The Golden Age of the Solar Clipper will soon become the first series I’ve read (listened to) twice.

The Vatican Assassin Trilogy by Mike Luoma - Science Fiction
Vatican Assassin
Vatican Ambassador
Vatican Abdicator
Alibi Jones
Another brilliant series. It’s amazing that this stuff is free. I was originally just intrigued by the title, but I quickly got sucked in to the story.

Ancestor by Scott Sigler – Science Fiction
I don’t know how this didn’t make the first list, but I’m kind of glad it didn’t so I get to include a Scott Sigler book here. Sigler’s is the only horror I read. Sci-Fi-Horror.

65 Below by Basil Sands – Fiction
When I finished this one I immediately bought the Kindle version, which is apparently a bit different. I haven’t read it yet.

This list feels a little shorter than Part 1, but I think if you add up the total listening time it’s pretty close. Guys like Bill DeSmedt, J.C. Hutchins, Scott Sigler, Mike Luoma, and Nathan Lowell have set the bar so high it’s hard to justify putting stories I thought were just “good” on a Best Of list.

As I said last time, if you enjoy these books support the author and keep a good thing going by donating through the Podiobooks page. The author gets 75%.

Grappling sometimes, but mostly just trying to get others to grapple.

  1. Thanks Brian!

    You’ve put me in with some great work and I’m honored to share the page with them.

    Basil’s 65 Below is one of my personal favorites too.

    I have to say that I think I liked the Rookie best of Scott’s work, altho it was Earthcore that set me on the road.


  2. Don’t trust Nathan Lowell. He has an army of writers chained to an old Roman galleon. That’s how he produces so much frickin’ content. Instead of screaming “Row, Row, Row,” he beats them with whips and says “write! Write! Write!”
