1 The Graveyard Book -- On his book tour for this title, Neil Gaiman read one chapter at each successive stop along the way. These were recoded (video and audio) and you can .hear the entire book by watching all of the videos at www.mousecircus.com/videotour.aspx
2 METAtropolis -- This is a future envisioned by science fiction writers John Scalzi, Elizabeth Bear, Jay Lake, Tobia Buskell and Karl Schroeder. Together, they set the ground rules and developed the parameters of this "shared universe." Then, they wrote five original novellas -- all linked, but each a separate tale. You may recognize some of the narrators as well -- Battlestar Galacticas Michael Hogan, Alessandro Juliani, and Kandyse McClure, plus Scott Brick and Stefan Rudnicki.
