Do You Consider Yourself a True Doctor Who Fan?

Would you join Doctor Who in his TARDIS and explore the universe without a second thought?  Have you watched every episode of Doctor Who yet still want more?  If you haven’t listened to the audio versions of Doctor Who….YOU MUST! It’s a completely different experience than watching a TV episode and just as addicting.

AudioGO features all kinds of Who audios, from the original radio episodes and TV soundtracks to unabridged readings of WHO tie-in novels, original audio stories  starring current TV cast members like Matt Smith and Arthur Darvill and even missing classic television episodes now only available on audio.  Enjoy reliving all of the 11 Doctors’ adventures throughout the years.

The newest Doctor Who release is Paradise Towers.  Bonnie Langford, who played Mel in the original TV series, reads Stephen Wyatt’s complete and unabridged novelization, first published by Target Books in 1988.  Much in need of a holiday, Mel and the Doctor head for Paradise Towers: a luxury man-made planet with sparkling fountains, sunny streets, exotic flowers, and a shimmering blue swimming pool. But when the TARDIS materializes in a dark, rubbish-filled, rat-infested alley it seems that this particular Paradise has turned into Hell! Pursued by rogue cleaning machines, authoritarian caretakers, and old ladies with strange eating habits, the Doctor and Mel track down the source of the chaos to one mysterious character–the designer of Paradise Towers, the Great Architect himself…

These Honored Dead by Thomas A. Desjardin is available for download.  (Listen to sample audio).  Ever since the guns fell silent in July 1863, the Battle of Gettysburg has emerged as the defining conflict in our nation’s history. American memory has established Gettysburg as the most important, most heroic, most savage battle this nation has ever fought.

Although no sculptured marble should rise to their memory, nor engraved stone bear record of their deeds, yet will their remembrance be as lasting as the land they honored.  ~Daniel Webster

Emma and her friend Chloe are spending vacation in Florida. When Emma (literally) runs into a hot guy named Galen on the beach, little does she know he’s a prince of the Syrena. Galen and Emma both feel something strange–is it attraction?–and Galen suspects that Emma might well be the girl he’s heard of–a human who can communicate with fish. What follows is a deadly scene with a shark in which Galen witnesses Emma’s gifts. He must know more about her, and follows her back to New Jersey, and high school, to find out for sure if she’s the key to saving his kingdom. Soon, Emma can’t deny her feelings for him, but can’t explain them, either–and both she and Galen must learn more about where she comes from and what her powers are before they can trust one another and their feelings. Told from both Emma and Galen’s points of view, here is a fish-out-of-water story that sparkles with intrigue, humor, and waves of romance.

“The Gods of War’ by Conn Iggulden

“The Gods of War” written by Conn Iggulden, author of the best-selling ‘Emperor’ and ‘Conqueror’ historical fiction series is available on CD at AudioGO. The year is 53 B.C. Fresh from victory in Gaul, Julius Caesar leads battle-hardened legions across the Rubicon river-threatening Rome herself. Even the master strategist Pompey is caught unprepared by the strike, and forced to abandon his city. The armies of Rome will face each other at last in civil war, led by the two greatest generals ever to walk the seven hills. Thus begins Conn Iggulden’s towering saga of Julius Caesar as he approaches his final destiny-a destiny that will be decided not by legions but by his friend Brutus and an Egyptian queen named Cleopatra, who will bear his only son…The Gods of War follows Julius Caesar through politics and passion, ruthless ambition and private grief, and into the corruption of power itself. Those he has loved will play a part in his triumphs-as will the jealousy and hatred of his enemies. From the spectacles of the arena to the whispered lies of conspirators, Conn Iggulden brings to life a world of monumental drama. And at its heart is one extraordinary friendship-marked by fierce loyalty and bitter betrayal, with dark events shrouded in noble ideals.
