Author Michael Flynn is a Hugo Award finalist and Robert A. Heinlein Award–winning science fiction writer. He has here written a space opera with stunningly successful results. The January Dancer tells the fateful story of an ancient prehuman artifact of great power and of the people who found it. Starting with Captain Amos January, who quickly loses it, and then the others who fought, schemed, and killed to get it, we travel around the complex, decadent, brawling, mongrelized, interstellar human civilization that the artifact might save or destroy. Collectors want the Dancer, pirates take it, rulers crave it, and all will kill, if necessary, to get it. This is a thrilling yarn of love, revolution, music, and mystery, and it ends, as all great stories do, with shock and a beginning.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“An epic tale of adventure, intrigue, suspense and mystery…The plot evokes old-school space opera with its whirlwind pace, immense scope and twist ending, but cutting-edge extrapolation breathes vivid life into this universe of scoundrels, heroes, and romantics.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“With Stephan Rudnicki’s deep, lively voice masterfully delivering the narrative, the story comes alive and keeps the listener engaged throughout…Rudnicki does well with the layered storytelling and carries listeners along as the narrative shifts from one character’s perspective to another.” AudioFile
“Stefan Rudnicki narrates with his usual expertise, adroitly affecting slight voice changes that communicate character when voicing dialogue.” SFFAudio.com
“Michael Flynn has crafted an epic space opera in every sense of the word. His layered story has a large and distinctive cast of characters, and a fully realized intergalactic space-faring society that is remarkably complex. The careful plot contains story lines that jump organically among character points of view. Stefan Rudnicki’s clear, concise and richly dynamic reading starts strong and gets progressively stronger as the story continues; it is an excellent representation of Flynn’s story. The listener will find it quite difficult to step away from this very enjoyable audiobook.” SoundCommentary.com
