Stocks in this article: AMZN

Audible today announced that Stephen King’s riveting, much-discussed essay, “Guns,” is now available for purchase as a $0.99 audio download at Audible.com. Created by Audible Studios, the production arm of Audible.com, the audio edition is narrated by two-time Earphones Award winner Christian Rummel. “Guns” was published in January in eBook format as a Kindle Single.

“The overwhelming response from readers of the Kindle Single edition of “Guns” underscores the great need for thoughtful discourse on the issue of guns in America,” said King. “I’ve always recognized the value of having my work available in audio, and I’m thrilled Audible is bringing “Guns” to the quickly growing audience of audiobook listeners.”

“Stephen King is an enduring Audible customer favorite, and his books, both fiction and nonfiction, are perennial bestsellers in the Audible store. I know our customers will be eager to listen to this thoughtful and important new work on a subject that touches us all,” said Audible EVP and Publisher Beth Anderson.

Audible, the world’s largest seller of digital spoken-word content, invented and commercialized the first digital audio player in 1997, and has since been at the forefront of the explosively growing audiobook download segment. In 2011, downloads by Audible members increased by more than 40% over 2010, with individual members downloading an average of more than 18 books over the course of a year.

In 2012, Audible Studios secured a record 37 nominations for the Audie Awards, which honor outstanding audiobooks and other spoken-word performances. On February 10, 2013, Audible Studios received its first Grammy Award, for its production of Janis Ian’s memoir Society’s Child. With Audible Studios, Audible.com has become the largest producer of audiobooks in the world.
