Clarke Center for Human Imagination. He has won the Hugo, Nebula, Locus, and World Fantasy awards.

Stefan Rudnicki is an award winning audiobook narrator, director and producer. He was born in Poland and now resides in Studio City, California. He has narrated more than three hundred audiobooks and has participated in over a thousand as a writer, producer, or director. He is a recipient of multiple Audie Awards and AudioFile Earphones Awards as well as a Grammy Award, a Bram Stoker Award, and a Ray Bradbury Award. He received AudioFile's award for 2008 Best Voice in Science Fiction and Fantasy. Along with a cast of other narrators, Rudnicki has read a number of Orson Scott Card's best-selling science fiction novels. He worked extensively with many other science fiction authors, including David Weber and Ben Bova. In reviewing the twentieth anniversary edition audiobook of Card's Ender's Game, Publishers Weekly stated, Rudnicki, with his lulling, sonorous voice, does a fine job articulating Ender's inner struggle between the kind, peaceful boy he wants to be and the savage, violent actions he is frequently forced to take. Rudnicki is also a stage actor and director.

Reviews

Twenty-five years after its print publication, Pacific Edge finally has an audio edition, thanks to Stefan Rudnicki and Skyboat Media...No other book in my collection has the power to uplift me with hope and optimism like this one...Pacific Edge is an inspiring story about inspiring stories. It's even more relevant now than it was a quarter century ago.

-- "Cory Doctorow"

Through a blend of dirt-under-fingernails naturalism and lyrical magical realism, Robinson invites us to share his characters' intensely personal, intensely loyal attachment to what they have. The result is a bittersweet utopia that may shame you into entertaining new hope for the future.

-- "New York Times Book Review"

An outstanding achievement...Robinson's writing ranks in the highest levels of the genre. The book generates a soaring optimism.
