Hi folks,

Didn't see anything mentioned on the forum, so I thought I'd share something I recently
found. Tantor Media has released the first of three volumes of Howard's unabriged and
unedited stories in their original published order. The reader is quite good, and the first
volume is a whopping 18 hours!

I missed this post, and made one of my own. I downloaded the first book from audible. The reader is good, and I think folks will enjoy it. I found a few personal annoyances. The reader pronounces Cimmeria as Simmer-ia. I'm used to Sim-air-ia and it drives me nuts. But I understand that he's probably saying it correctly. Also, I liked the reader for the Jordan audio books. He really had a great command of accents and his Conan was gruff, but youthful. This reader seems to be playing with a bit of scottish or irish like Conan is a medieval tribesman. Good, but a bit of a personal disapointment. Still, I'm happy it's finally been done, and I will certainly buy the rest.

Are the Robert Jordan Conan stories available as audioboobks? I didn't see them at Audible nor have I ever seen them in audiobook form. I just finished reading "The Chronicles of Conan, Vol. 1" by Jordan and I'm looking to get "The Further Chronicles of Conan" sometime in the future. I'd rather have them in audiobook format since I commute alot.

I am downloading The Bloody Crown of Conan from Audible.com now. I thought Tantor did a great job with the first of the series. Not how I always pronounced Cimmeria though.

I had a very long drive over the weekend, and listened to about half of "The Coming of Conan" and really enjoyed it. The reader does a good job. I will look forward to the rest of the series.

It's been a long time since I've been on this forum, and look what I've been missing!! After reading this thread, I went directly to Amazon and bought all three of these. I'm in the car about 2 hours a day, and this will certainly add some spice to the drive. (though perhaps Conan is not the best thing to be listening to when battling through traffic lol) Can't wait to give them a listen!

Has anyone purchased the audio CDs? I'm interested in how the CDs were packaged. I'm impressed with the front cover - a close-up of the Del Rey cover.

I am not impressed by the speaker to be honest, but then again as a german, we have the biggest voice-over market in the world due to the fact, that we get every movie, tv-series, book etc.. translated and we get voice over actors to read audio-books that normally do the voice over for award winning actors and they are a lot better than the average audio book reader I've heard in most English audio books so far. (though I did like the classic Harry Potter audio-books from the BBC, their voice over was really really well acted)
Let us show them our hearts and then show them theirs!
