Audible Studios, a production arm of Audible.com, recently declared the release of Hugo, Locus and Audie Award-winning author John Scalzi’s new audio-exclusive novella, The Dispatcher, performed by Zachary Quinto. This gripping thriller, about a complex future in which professional “dispatchers” intervene to bring murder victims back to life, is now available for free download at audible.com/Dispatcher. The audiobook remains free until November 3rd.
“What struck me most about The Dispatcher was that even though it has this creepy science fiction premise, it’s so heavily rooted in human relationships,” said Quinto, whose television and film credits include Heroes, Star Trek Beyond, Snowden and American Horror Story. “Performing this vivid story and bringing John’s characters to life with my voice alone was a challenge and a pleasure.”
“The idea for The Dispatcher had been rolling around in my head for a while, so I was delighted that Audible gave me an excuse to write it,” said Scalzi. “I was also excited for the challenge of writing a story that would exist in audio first – writing with the narrator and listener in mind. The medium of audio turned out to be perfect for the story, and having Zachary Quinto bring it to life was the perfect finishing touch. I can’t wait for people to hear it.”
