Permafrost on Audie award shortlist

I'm delighted to learn that Permafrost, my Tor novella from 2019, is on the science fiction shortlist for this year's Audie Awards, as hosted by the Audio Publisher's Association. I am very grateful to all at Tor and Macmillan Audio who helped see this book out into the world, with particular thanks to Ruoxi Chen, Caro Penny. Mordicai Knode, Jonathan Strahan and Natasha Soudek.

Here are the finalists:

Emergency Skin by N.K. Jemisin, narrated by Jason Isaacs, published by Brilliance Publishing

Hollow Kingdom by Kira Jane Buxton, narrated by Robert Petkoff, published by Hachette Audio

The Last Astronaut by David Wellington, narrated by Megan Tusing, published by Hachette Audio

The Lesson by Cadwell Turnbull, narrated by Ron Butler and Janina Edwards, published by Blackstone Publishing

Permafrost by Alastair Reynolds, narrated by Natasha Soudek, published by Macmillan Audio

It's fine company and best of luck of all involved. The winning title will be announced in New York on March 2nd. I won't be there, as I've got a prior commitment involving a 10K run - well, that's my excuse, anyway.
