Now Hear This: Samurai Shortstop Audio!

>> Saturday, March 11, 2006

A week ago, I signed the contract on an audio version of Samurai Shortstop, due this Fall from Listening Library! This is a big deal for me, because Listening Library is very selective about what they choose to make available - especially from first-time, mid-list authors like me!

A no-frills, advance sales page is now up at Amazon. Yes, the Samurai Shortstop book-on-CD can be yours for the low-low price of $45.00! I expect them to sell like hotcakes. :-)

No word yet on who will be doing the reading. I'm holding out for Ken Watanabe or George Takei (Star Trek's Mr. Sulu). A guy can dream, can't he? Ooh! Maybe I'll get Gedde Watanabe, the guy who played Long Duk Dong in Sixteen Candles and was also in Volunteers and Gung Ho! He does a lot of voice work now. Then again, I will most likely get a professional yet not-famous reader.

And for all you iPod owners out there, Listening Library will apparently also be offering a downloadable digital audio file. You can see the page for the audio download here, on the Random House site. (Random House is the distributor for Listening Library.) No word yet if it will be available as an iTunes download, but I'll let you know!
