I've been listening to audiobooks a good amount over the last 6 months because I deliver flowers, so I spend a LOT of time on the road, and I like it a lot more than listening to music. So one thought led to another, and I was wondering if the Morningstar Saga would ever see audiobooks. And then THAT led to another thought. What if WE made and audiobook for one or more of Z's novels? I know it's an idea that probably won't come to fruition because that's asking a lot of people who rarely even show their own pictures. Not to mention I don't know if any of us are skilled enough to sound convincing. But wouldn't it be cool if each of us could represent a character in the story and voice their lines? I feel like that could be fun. But like said before, it's a big endeavor, especially for whoever would narrate the story and whoever would have to splice everyone's lines together in order. 

Unfortunately this idea will probably die in this thread, but I just thought maybe it would be cool to pitch to you guys. I feel like it would be fun to have my character mapped out, and to scroll through the pages of Z's works and bring that character to life through his or her lines of dialogue.

Just a thought, of course.

An audiobook edition of both Plague of the Dead and Thunder and Ashes are available (clicky clicky).

Available how?  Kindle?  CD's?  Cassettes?  Oliver Wyman the voice actor or the company?  If the company who actually does the voice acting?

I have Kindle for IPhone which does not support the voice feature.

I wanna hear a clip of the narrator first. Some are good....like the dude who did the LotR books, and The Gatekeeper series.  Some suck though.

According to Amazon they were released in August 2009.  As to why Z never posted about them I don't know.  (Or maybe he did post about them somewhere...)

I think Creeper was drunk, in Mexico, with that donkey girl, and out of communication for 2 weeks during that time period.  These things happen.  But, moving forward.....
