Another Iambik audiobook in production

November 20, 2010

I am really looking forward to this one. Iambik Audiobooks have asked me to record It’s Behind You by Keith Temple.

This is going to be fun. It’s about an aging ex-soap-star who has fallen on hard times and is reduced to pantomime in the North-east of England. What a bunch of has-beens and misfits there are in this book! There is certainly plenty of comic scope.

The author, Keith Temple, is a well established script writer for TV shows such as EastEnders, Doctor Who, Casualty and Doc Martin, and this is his first novel.

The audiobook’s release date is likely to be January.

Cleek rides again!

November 20, 2010

I have just catalogued The Riddle of the Frozen Flame, the latest adventure of Hamilton Cleek.

I’m afraid it isn’t as good as previous Cleek mysteries, and I will choose more carefully if I record another. However, if you like Cleek (and I have to confess a sneaking partiality for the gentleman) I hope you will enjoy it.

New LibriVox recording

November 18, 2010

My latest LibriVox recording may be an acquired taste, but was fun to read: Christmas Comes but Once a Year by John Leighton. It is the tale of the snobbish Brown family at Christmas time, 1850, and their experiences with the dubious Captain Bonaventure de Camp, the new tenant of the other half of their suburban villa.

It did make me laugh, even though sometimes I thought the endless sentences of the wordy Mr. Leighton would drive me nuts. In addition, interested in the Victorian period as I am, I was enthralled by this peep into the social life of a well-to-do family in the mid-19th century.
