Re: audio books

Welcome to the board, Kapitola! :)

Unfortunately, English-language audio books for MS&T are not available. Lots of other Tad-books are available in audiobook form, but not MS&T. There have been lot of requests, and there is definitely a market for it, but it hasn't happened.

Re: audio books

Adding my plea for audio books.  Read MST at least 2x BC (before children).  Now that I multi-task at everything, I just plug in the headphones and enjoy great story-telling.

Re: audio books

The Shadowmarch series, the Bobby Dollar books and now Otherland  are available  as unabdriged audio books.  It will be only a matter of time till the rest of his books, especially  MST will follow.

Re: audio books

I did not like the Shadowmarch audiobooks because I think the narrator was awful, I've not yet listened to the Bobby Dollar books but I highly recommend Otherland. It is read brilliantly!

Re: audio books

I am disheartened that you can't purchase audiobooks of the Dragonbone Chair, Stone of Farewell, and Green Angel Tower in the US and that they are available in the UK.
When will they be available?

Re: audio books

Welcome to the boards, MythingLinx!

This is a well mourned topic. Nobody knows when but everyone expects that there wil be audio books of MST at some point. Hopefully next year when the new books are out ...

Re: audio books

Tad is well aware of the problem and working to resolve it. It´s a copyright problem. Which publishers owns the right to publish something in what territory.
