I’m thrilled to announce that I’ve been named as a finalist for three Independent Audiobook Awards. There isn’t a classics category this year, and so Scaramouche is a finalist in the “General Fiction” category as well as the “Best Male Narrator” category. And seriously, getting nominated for the Best Male Narrator is like already winning. All the other narrators in that group are among the best of the best. I’ve taken coaching from some of them. I’m also a finalist in the “Paranormal” category for “Sucker Punch”, the third volume of Kristen Painter’s First Fangs Club series. Its genre is technically Paranormal Women’s Fiction. Winners are announced in June. I’ll let you know how it goes!

App users can hear the poem, “So We’ll Go No More a Roving”, by George Gordon, Lord Byron, in the special features for today’s episode.

And if it’s more convenient, we are streaming our episodes through YouTube, now. A link can be found in the comments section for today’s episode.

Today’s episode is the third of five where we will be presenting F. Scott Fitzgerald’s immortal The Great Gatsby. This piece is a little edgier than the stuff we usually present. The themes deal largely with racism, and socio-economic elitism. There’s also some rougher language, just so you have a heads up.

And now, The Great Gatsby, part 3 of 5, by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
