STARSHIP series audio rights re-sold

I just re-sold audio rights to the Starship series — Starship: Mutiny, Starship: Pirate, Starship: Mercenary, Starship: Rebel, and Starship: Flagship to Audible.com.

Hope you like ‘em.  Audible.com tells me — well, their royalty statements tell me — that they were pretty popular the first time around.
