Iambik Audiobooks: Small Press Books in Audio!

I don't use exclamation points in blog post titles often. I do often refer library patrons looking for recordings of public domain works (there are inevitably way too many last-minute holds on Huck Finn on CD at the end the summer when it's been assigned to every highschooler in town) to LibriVox, which features free audiobooks recorded by volunteers.

Today, LibriVox founder Hugh Maguire has launched a company that sells (very inexpensive) audio recordings of a selection of small press books.

Iambik, the new company, currently offers 11 DRM-free audiobooks as mp3s or m4bs, including Oh Pure and Radiant Heart by Lydia Davis (Soft Skull) and Like Son by Felicia Luna Lemus (Akashic Books).

Iambik seeks input on which small press books you'd like to listen to, and is also open to hearing from publishers, authors, narrators, and prooflisteners who might be interested in working with them. Great news, I think.

Hi Emily, Thanks so much for your kind words. I'm pretty excited, and of course a bit nervous - lots of work to do to make it a true success of course, but we've had great response so far, lets hope interest keeps growing....
