A rare hardcover first edition of Stars – Stories Inspired by the Songs of Janis Ian – along with the gigantic audiobook of same, which also features a bonus story by best-selling author Michael Swanwick.
This item is an Audie nominee.
As an added bonus: Strictly Solo CD, available only with this package!
When author Mike Resnick suggested to Janis that there might be value in a book made up of stories created around her songs, Janis thought the idea was crazy. And when Resnick insisted that many of Janis’ favorite science fiction and fantasy authors would love to contribute, she actually laughed in his face.
Well, she was wrong! Authors like Nancy Kress, Orson Scott Card (Ender’s Game), Jane Yolen and David Gerrold (The Trouble With Tribbles), not only came forward – they outdid themselves. Each one picked a favorite Janis Ian song, then created a story around the lyrics. Many of the authors already owned Janis’ work (Howard Waldrop of The Ugly Chickens fame even told her not to bother sending CD’s, he already had copies of everything). And for icing on the cake, Janis wrote her first short story in order to be a part of this collection.
Called “dazzling” and “highly original” by Publisher’s Weekly, Janis finally found the time to supervise an audio version. Produced and directed by Stefan Rudnicki (who directed Janis’ own autobiography, as well as her Patience and Sarah audiobook). Ten different narrators (including Janis) contributed to this effort.
17 audio discs, 20 hours 50 minutes of listening time, plus a “stonker” of a first edition hardback book.
We actually think this is one of the cooler combos of this sale.
* Book may be ex-library. All have dust covers intact and are considered “very good”.
