2013 Armchair Audies Category Wrap up: Science Fiction
This years Science Fiction nominees offered an interesting dilemma, except for one title, I had already listed to them. The Science Fiction Category offers a lot of wonderful audiobooks this year from a wide selection of subgenres. I was truly amazed by the diversity of the titles. All of them offer wonderful performances by their narrators and there’s not one title here that I would be disappointed if it won. Here are the nominees.

I really struggled picking a winner out of such a strong category. I think Emily Janice Card’s performance of Age of Miracles was mesmerizing, and I couldn’t help but be happy that one of my favorite series, The Lost Fleet and it’s excellent narrator Christian Rummel received a nod. Julianna Baggot’s brilliant world in Pure came alive through the work of four excellent narrators. Angela Dawe gave one of the most fascinating and funniest performances in her reading of Agatha H and the Clockwork Princess Yet, when it came time to chose who I thought would win, and which title I wanted to win, I came up with two distinctively different titles. Peter Clines 14 was one of my overall favorite audiobooks of 2012 and Ray Porter is a breathtaking narrator. Yet, the slow burning Apocalypse in The Age of Miracles and spot on narration of Card I feel may sway more judges.
