In case the embeds don’t show:

Oasis president Stephen D. Smith says, “Enclave Publishing has established itself as a haven for authors of the fantastic. The very best YA and Adult steampunk, Fantasy, Supernatural and Science Fiction, featuring some of the brightest and best talents in the genres. We are thrilled to bring them all into audio form.”

Enclave president Steve Laube says, “Oasis is a long established company and has already been doing marvelous work with selected Enclave titles. This new partnership will bring our entire catalog to life.”

New titles will come monthly until all titles (over 70) will be available. Then new books will be released simultaneously in print, ebook, and audio.

From the publishers’ websites:

Enclave is a leading publisher of Christian speculative fiction. Whether it’s Christian science fiction you love, or fantasy, time travel, steampunk, alternate history, spiritual warfare, superhero, or technothriller—if it’s speculative and it comes from the Christian worldview, Enclave is the place to go. We strive to get Christian speculative fiction into the hands of the fans who love and devour great stories.

Oasis Audio began in 1999 publishing inspirational and self-help audio titles from a wide variety of sources. Over the years, the product selection expanded to include Bibles, non-fiction, fiction, children’s and business audio titles. Today, Oasis Audio publishes more Christian and inspirational titles than any other audio publisher in the US.
