I've just finished listening to the fantastic unabridged audiobook adaptation of Ariel
, Stephen Boyett's classic post-apocalyptic swords-and-sorcery adventure novel that was just reissued. The recording was produced by Deyan Audio
, and read by Ramon De Ocampo
who really nailed it. The incidental music came from Boyett's wife, Maureen Halderson
, who clearly has a handle on how to produce the accompaniment to the much-loved tale.
Ariel is a natural for adaptation to audiobook -- a nonstop, tightly plotted adventure novel with lots of exciting, well-told combat sequences that De Ocampo just nails. And, of course, the book is available as a DRM-free download (Boyett's something of a copyfighter, which makes it great all around.
Incidentally, Boyett's holding a competition in which he's asking for readers to send in photos of their "ganked out" original copies of Ariel (mine's much-loved and has been read literally dozens of times), with the owners of the most beat-up copies winning signed new editions. Sweet deal!
