Re: Shadowmarch Unabridged Audiobooks coming this November

Well, if the Shadowmarch audiobooks do well enough, Brilliance might be interested to do Tad's backlist. The majority of sales will most likely be direct downloads rather than physical sales. The books should be widely available through audible, itunes and similar services.

However, I will probably buy a physical edition to put on my shelf and then tranfer it on my ipod to listen to it on my commute.

Re: Shadowmarch Unabridged Audiobooks coming this November

will there be only the english version? because the otherland german audiobook was quite awesome, of course it reached not the level of the books, but anyway good, and so my sister who rejected to read those thousands of pages could also participate on the awesome otherland story ... the shadowmach books i read only in english and i think thats the best way to do, but anyway im curious if there will be again a german version?!

Re: Shadowmarch Unabridged Audiobooks coming this November

Oooooh- marvelous! I do the bulk of my reading right now via audio, just because my work schedule makes it difficult to do otherwise (but very easy to listen to books). I will definitely be snagging these when they're finished. :D

Re: Shadowmarch Unabridged Audiobooks coming this November

Audio veteran Dick Hill who has a lot of audiobooks under his belt and won many awards for his audio skill will be reading the Shadowmarch audiobooks. There are many samples on the above linked website from Brillance where you can get a short preview of what Shadowmarch will sound like.

Re: Shadowmarch Unabridged Audiobooks coming this November

Amazon.de is already shipping copies of the mp3 versions. SHADOWMARCH arrived this weekend and SHADOWPLAY and SHADOWRISE should arrive tomorrow. I was somewhat sceptical about Dick Hill as performer because the sample clip on the Brilliance audio website did not convinve me that he was the right choice for the books. I found his performance in the sample much too melodramatic for my taste. But now I have started listening to the first bits of SHADOWMARCH. The "Brief History of Eion" and the "Prelude" and I must say that he reads them quite perfectly with suitable gravitas. I am very much looking forward now to listening to the rest.

Re: Shadowmarch Unabridged Audiobooks coming this November

As of today, Audible.com and Audible.de are offering downloads of the first three Shadowmarch audiobooks. Shadowheart will surely join the first three on Nov. 30th.

Re: Shadowmarch Unabridged Audiobooks coming this November

I have bought all of the Shadowmarch audiobooks from Audible.com and am almost halfway through them.  I would love to get a lot more of his earlier works in audio as well.  PLEASE have the others done as well and keep us informed as to when they become available.  Thanks so much...

Re: Shadowmarch Unabridged Audiobooks coming this November

Currently listening to Book 2 "Shadowplay", about 3/4 of the way and absolutely love it!

What comes across initially as a somewhat basic story, develops rather quickly into a fairly complex Fantasy work and adventure ;)

The main story-lines are pretty straightforward, but it's the History and Mythology of the Qar and the World and Lands of Shadowmarch that raises this adventure to the heights it deserves.

Very glad to be able to listen/read Mr. Williams' works and to be a fan these last 12 yrs! 

How the time flies!!!

Best Regards to All,

MrCairo

Btw - I've sent a request to both Audible and Brilliance Audio for his other amazing tale "Memory, Sorrow and Thorn" to be produced...promised them it would be a very profitable venture ;)

Would love to see/hear how Mr. Dick Hill would bring that amazing epic/story to life! 

Btw2 - Will have to dive into the Otherworld series after this me thinks ;)

Re: Shadowmarch Unabridged Audiobooks coming this November

Welcome back MrCairo!

Glad you like the audiobook and are immersed in Shadowmarch.
To me to be honest the audiobook was a great disappointment. I could not get used to the way Dick Hill narrated. Somehow to full of himself. I had the impression he was reading Briony as if he was mocking her. I was actually so annoyed that I stopped listening about three hours into Shadowmarch.
So although I heartily support the making of MST - the audiobook I'd prefer someone else reading it.
Jim Dale is best imho.
