Woohoo! Our second ever audiobook giveaway was just as popular as the first! So many entries and so many great books. Only two people could win though, and we’ll get to them in a second but first we wanted to thank everybody who entered the draw. Thank you for helping to make this giveaway a massive success! Now, on to the winners and what audiobooks they selected!
Heroes by Stephen Fry
Our first winner, Amey M, selected the audiobook Hereos which is written and narrated by the always delightful Stephen Fry. This is the second book in the series “The Mythos Volumes”
Enter the monstrous and magical world of Stephen Fry’s Sunday Times best seller Heroes, brought to you by Penguin.
Shortlisted for the 2018 Specsavers audiobook award.
Imagine sandals on your feet, a sword in your hand and the hot sun beating down on your helmet. Enter the world of Stephen Fry’s Sunday Times best seller, Heroes.
Few mere mortals have ever embarked on such bold and heart-stirring adventures, overcome myriad monstrous perils, or outwitted scheming vengeful gods, quite as stylishly and triumphantly as Greek heroes.
In this companion to his best-selling Mythos, Stephen Fry brilliantly retells these dramatic, funny, tragic and timeless tales.
Join Jason aboard the Argo as he quests for the Golden Fleece. See Atalanta – who was raised by bears – outrun any man before being tricked with golden apples. Witness wily Oedipus solve the riddle of the Sphinx and discover how Bellerophon captures the winged horse Pegasus to help him slay the monster Chimera.
Filled with white-knuckle chases and battles, impossible puzzles and riddles, acts of base cowardice and real bravery, not to mention murders and selfless sacrifices, Heroes is the story of what we mortals are truly capable of – at our worst and our very best.
A Stitch in Time by Andrew J. Robinson
Our second lucky winner, Joesph R, actually chose to pass his prize onto a friend of his, Timothy M who he said would love it. Joesph chose A Stitch in Time, a Star Trek: Deep Space Nine novel written and narrated by Andrew J Robinson.
An unique and intense tale following Elim Garak as he attempts to stitch the ravaged society of Cardassia back together.
For nearly a decade Garak has longed for just one thing—to go home. Exiled on a space station, surrounded by aliens who loathe and distrust him, going back to Cardassia has been Garak’s one dream. Now, finally, he is home. But home is a world whose landscape is filled with death and destruction. Desperation and dust are constant companions and luxury is a glass of clean water and a warm place to sleep.
Ironically, it is a letter from one of the aliens on that space station, Dr. Julian Bashir, that inspires Garak to look at the fabric of his life. Elim Garak has been a student, a gardener, a spy, an exile, a tailor, even a liberator. It is a life that was charted by the forces of Cardassian society with very little understanding of the person, and even less compassion.
But it is the tailor that understands who Elim Garak was, and what he could be. It is the tailor who sees the ruined fabric of Cardassia, and who knows how to bring this ravaged society back together. This is strange, because a tailor is the one thing Garak never wanted to be. But it is the tailor whom both Cardassia and Elim Garak need. It is the tailor who can put the pieces together, who can take a stitch in time.
