A Free Maelstrom's Edge Audiobook!


We are pleased to present a free copy of a Maelstrom's Edge audiobook: Transit!

This audiobook by Stephen Gaskell is quite distinctive in our range of fiction, in that it deals entirely with civilians at the Maelstrom's Edge. The story follows the experiences of a small family, focusing on the eldest son - Kelvin, as he discovers that their hometown's continued decline is inevitable. It is just over an hour long and is free of charge for everyone.

This audiobook is free for everyone for the duration of the kickstarter, so be sure to download it today! Grab your copy now! We've kept a very relaxed pace with the narration of this audiobook, so it's great for listening to when painting plastic models, driving, and so forth.

We have a stretch goal for four more audiobooks on top of this one. We hope you'll agree that we've got the production process down, using professional voice actors in genuine recording studios. We'd love to get some more queued up and recorded, so please help promote us and bring in more backers!

You can help promote us by posting links to us wherever you can, including board games websites, wargaming blogs and forums, science-fiction websites, and many other places. If you frequent a website where you think some people might be interested in Maelstrom's Edge, then don't just wait for us to post there, please post there for us :) Share what you like about the project with others, and help send more eyeballs this way to get us even closer to the unlocked stretch goals! Thank you very much as always for your ongoing support and kind words!

Download Transit by Stephen Gaskell before it's gone on June 3rd!

      @Daniel, Transit is currently a standalone though we have a sequel in the planning phase. Making the sequel into an audiobook will either require hitting the audiobook stretch goal or a lot of time to get there slowly and naturally.

      Is Transit standalone or is there a sequel?

      It's so good! I love that feeling of being a little kid getting ready to set off on an adventure, that sci-fi does so well. I look forward to where this is going...
      And you're right, this is good listening while painting audio, I'm working on a 6ft Mermaid and squid painting, so it's a bit incongruous but still... maybe I'll work on a robot and rocket one next.

      Cheers SAS. Not sure when I'll get the chance to listen to it though :(
