The Adventures of Tom Stranger nominated for Best Original Work

For those of you who’ve not seen these before, the Audie Awards are like the Oscars for audio books. They are a juried award within the audio book industry. I believe the Original Work category is for shorter novella sized productions. Congratulations to all the other finalists, and best of luck to everybody.

Audie 2017

I’m really happy to see Tom Stranger in there, because it is just a weird, fun, goofy, adventure. And Adam Baldwin was absolutely hilarious in it. His performance was awesome, and he proves that he is one of the few humans who can speak Manatee with the proper gravitas and eloquence.

I think I’ve had like 6 or 7 Audie nominations now in various categories and have won a few over the years, but I’ve never before been part of a contest between Jayne, Spock, Xenomorphs, and Pete Seeger. That’s friggin’ hard core right there. 😀

Best of luck to everybody!

  1. Given that TAoTS is the only book on that list I’ve even heard of, I’ll be more than happy to vote for you Larry. I loved that. Plus an opportunity to vote against a real hippy and a real SJW? Sweet!

    1. They’ll be tough to beat. Their politics were/are standard Massachusetts liberal, but they never let their politics creep into their radio show (not that I ever heard, at least), and their knowledge of cars was second to none.

      I’ve never read the specific book that’s up for nomination, but I wouldn’t be surprised (given the rest of Car Talk’s history) if it pulls off a pretty good showing even in such a strong field.

  2. I find it hilarious that “The Christmas Town” (one of the types of books that “The Christmas (Noun)” is a parody of), is nominated over in the Inspirational section.

  3. My only real complaint is that Tom doesn’t provide a travel agent referral so I can get to one of the good universes.
