    Bellwether by who? (Actually, an RAH/Willis mash-up is probably exactly what the world needs right now. I’ll call it “–All My Darling Zombies–”.)

    Yes indeed. I spotted the mistake in the original announcement about Polkadyne being written by Ms. Card and narrated by Mr. Heinlein, which would have been quite an achievement by him. However, I totally failed to spot the other mistake. The Audies have issued a revised announcement and I’ve edited the post above accordingly.
