259 scottsigler Hi everyone. I'm honored EARTHCORE is the book club pick, and if you read it I hope you dig it. As other Redditors have pointed out, the current version on Audible/iTunes and the eBook on Amazon (and others) is the current version, completely re-written. The original was about 120,000 words, the current version is about 180,000. I re-wrote it primarily because I'm now much better at my craft. Damn proud of the new version. Unfortunately, the print version won't be out for a few months. I hope that doesn't inconvenience anyone! Also, the cover on the Goodreads link is old: [this is the current cover](https://7jtjw222dqs33tthx34xsxi18iy-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/EC16-PB-680.jpg). The audiobook is narrated by Ray Porter, Audible's 2015 Narrator of the Year, and he delivers an awesome performance. Here is my page for the book where you can find links to the different vendors: https://scottsigler.com/book/earthcore/
37 F1rePhant0m Ive never jumped in on these book club picks...but this sounds intriguing to me....
22 elphie93 This sounds really interesting, but I can't seem to find it anywhere! I've just tried the entire library catalogue for my (big) city, a big chain bookshop and 4 online sites I use to buy books. This could be tricky...
17 VikingDAB The best way to get the audiobook is to buy the ebook on Amazon and then add the Audible narration. It is cheaper than buying the audiobook directly.
15 ReallyPissedGuy I've listened to several of Sigler's audiobooks. He does the voice work himself, and they are free for the most part. I was pleasantly surprised. The production value was fairly high, and the plots were generally fast paced, creative, and enjoyable. I haven't read Earthcore, but I think I will.
12 docwilson2 I'm going to check this out, loved his Infected Trilogy.
12 inevitablelover When or where can we talk about the book? I finished it but I have one question that maybe I missed in the book; so I'm interested in what the answer could be? I don't want to spoil it to anyone who hasn't read it yet or is still reading it. :)
12 corsair1617 Is everyone really enjoying this? I will say I'm intrigued by the story but the characters are killing it for me. The dialogue too. All the characters feel like juvenile characaters to me. Angry prospector, cigar smoking boss (who smokes because, you know bosses do), super sexualized murder spy, and nerdy smarter-than-you scientist. All of them feel single note. Everyone talks like a 15 year old who loves the word fuck. I was surprised that the author wasn't 20. I'm about 1/3 of the way through and honestly I just want all of them to get ripped apart. I haven't decided to quit on it yet, but I am close.
11 fiberpunk What timing! /u/crazycatlady108 and I were talking about Sigler books last week. I listened to Earthcore about a billion years ago (approximately) as a podiobook. I approve of this book selection!
9 _aD Oh wow, this is a blast from the past! "Earthcore: The world's first podcast novel" is an opener I'll always remember. Interesting characters and with very well-paced plot development. The action is gripping and the looming sense of unease is ratcheted up in a series of crescendos.
7 rubbucks Can anybody confirm if this book is out of print? Like elphie93, I can't find it anywhere except for a digital copy.
7 lurker4lyfe6969 If you like Lovecraftian horror then pick this book up. I really enjoyed it and I don't often get a book that capture my attention like this one. Yeah the language is a bit crass, and a bit cliche but it makes up for it with suspenseful storytelling.
6 claenray168 Just picked the kindle version today. Looking forward to starting it soon.
5 Gym_Dom I tried the original podcast version several years ago after reading Infected. I didn't make it far in Earthcore due to its audio quality; I remember this persistent fan sound in the background. Now that I've read the updated version, I have to agree that the story's improved greatly. There's more buildup to getting to the mountain this time. Now that I've read it, I can see how its conclusion makes readers clamor for the follow-up, much like I still do with Sigler's Nocturnal. I look forward to chatting more about this book and its ties to the Siglerverse as September progresses.
5 stobert I finished listening to it a couple weeks ago, and it is a tremendous book. Highly recommend everyone check this out.
5 SavageUtopia Having not really had a book grab my interest in a long time, which has really bothered me as I was quite the bookworm during my childhood, I decided to download this e-book on a whim on Monday. Four days later, I have read more than half of the book and am looking forward to finishing it this weekend! This is not my usual genre of interest but glad that I took it up. Thanks for a great selection!

4 inevitablelover I'm a little new to this Reddit thing, so I apologize for any errors/repeat questions. @scottsigler - there are a few veterans in this book, and they have similar feelings towards the service, mostly about how they felt worthless and such after 'leaving'. I feel that you describe these emotions very well, are you a veteran yourself? Curious! Side note - I'm nearly halfway done reading the book on Hoopla and I am hooked! I can't put it down and I definitely look forward to reading your other stuff. Thanks!
5 Willster328 Ugh. I'm actually pretty mad that this is e-book only. I don't have an e-reader (refuse to buy one) and I'm not going to read this on a cell phone. Future picks should have a physical copy available, as this seems to be a pretty standard prerequisite for you know... books...
4 Scottneut Reading it on hoopla- about 1/4 of the way done. Really digging this book. Has a lot more depth than I had expected. I can't wait to unearth the mysteries surrounding the mountain.
