An excellent addition to the GFL universe!

Where does The Reporter rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Definitely near the top, but I would not recommend it to listeners who are not already familiar with the GFL universe. This novella flushes out the future Scott has built beautifully, but I doubt it would be very enjoyable for someone not familiar with all of the characters and intrigue of the world established in the core GFL novels.

What did you like best about this story?

It had a slightly different tone than other stories Scott has written in the GFL universe. I assume this is Mur Lafferty's influence on the novella, and it was refreshing to hear the GFL universe presented slightly differently than I was used to. It's still instantly recognizable, but subtly changed in an intangible way.

What about Scott Sigler’s performance did you like?

His performance of his own characters is always excellent. He brings them to life as no one else can.

Any additional comments?

If you're a fan of Scott's GFL novels, this is absolutely worth a credit.

See the Siglerverse Through New Eyes

If you could sum up The Reporter in three words, what would they be?

Save Ju Tweedy!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Tarat the Smasher is a great source of comedic relief in the main series, and in The Reporter we finally get a deep look into his character, as well as this spin-off book's primary protagonist Yolanda Davenport.

What about Scott Sigler’s performance did you like?

Only Scott can do justice to many of the characters' voices, like Tarat the Smasher, and John Tweedy.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, because his podcasts are spaced weekly--buying this audiobook was a way for me to blast past the cliffhangers!

Any additional comments?

What is amazing is the way that Scott Sigler has opened up his Sci-Fi world to other authors, and kept enough of his hand involved to guarantee consistency. While the main timeline of his GFL series moves ahead (both on and off the field) primarily through Quarterback Quentin Barnes’ eyes, this spin-off novel fleshes out a portion of the seven-book story arc through Reporter Yolanda Davenport’s perspective. Author Mu Lafferty did a seamless job and the audiobook is voiced by Scott, so it feels exactly right.

Let's do space football and a detective story.

I no joke have listened to this book a total of 6 times now. What can i say. It's just plain fun to listen to. So why don't you buy it and see if you like it. like all the other novellas you don't need to listen to the main series but it dose spoil a bit of it if you do this first and not listen to the main series.

Strong Female character in an intriguing whodunit

The audiobook has just been released for this novella that came out a few years ago, and it was worth the wait. The story itself is gold. Gritty detective work and a great slot story that fits in between events that we've already read about in Scott Sigler's The All-Pro GFL novel. These GFL novellas are just loads and gobs of candy; they're well-written and expand on minor-er characters, even introducing great new ones.

This book is an investigate reporter whodunit with lots of plotting, scheming, murder, suspense, thrills, spills and just plain fun. Co-written by the inimitable Mur Lafferty and Scott Sigler, it's a great piece of work that even provides motivation and insight to the core novel from which it has spawned.

The audio production is top-shelf, with crowd noises and the familiar attention to detail found throughout all of Scott's GFL books. This is the second novella to get the audiobook treatment, and I hope the rest of them aren't too far behind. It's great to hear Sigler himself reading the story, with all of his great vocalizations that we've come to know and love.
