Zachary Quinto 200 (GalleyCat)Zachary Quinto will serve as the narrator for the audiobook edition of a new John Scalzi novella entitled The Dispatcher. As an actor, Quinto (pictured, via) has become well-known for playing Mr. Spock in the Star Trek movies.

According to, Scalzi wrote this science-fiction thriller novella exclusively for Audible. The publisher has set the release date for October 4.

Here’s more from Entertainment Weekly: “The Dispatcher is set in a contemporary world just like ours, except for one pretty major twist — people who get murdered have been coming back to life. If you die of natural causes or commit suicide, you stay dead, but murder, much to everyone’s surprise, has become nearly impossible to commit. Tony Valdez is a Dispatcher, someone sent to ‘release’ people if, say, they’re in the midst of an operation and are about to die, before they actually go. But when a fellow Dispatcher goes missing, it’s up to Valdez to track him down.”
